DevTeach Conference 2013


​​​

 

Envision IT is pleased to announce that our President, Peter Carson, will be speaking at this year's DevTeach Conference being held in Mississauga from May 27-31, 2013. DevTeach (Developers Teaching) is a conference delivered by developers for developers. It offers all the elements of an international conference and the feel of a community event. The conference mission is to provide an accessible conference to all developers of small and large enterprises with the highest standard in the industry.

DevTeach gives everyone the chance to get training from internationally renowned speakers at an affordable price. The conference offers three full days of  keynotes, workshops and presentations on topics ranging from Mobile to Cloud computing, SharePoint, JavaScript, SQL Server, Agile development and more, with an additional two days of pre-conference and post-conference workshops.

Peter's presentation on SharePoint Search will cover the following:

SharePo​int Search

Microsoft continues to make massive investments in Search in SharePoint.  Following the FAST acquisition in 2008, portions of the FAST search technology made its way into SharePoint Search, but FAST remained a separate product.  For SharePoint 2013, there is only SharePoint Search, combining the power of FAST and the new 2013 features.  We will compare and contrast Search in SharePoint 2013 with both SharePoint 2010 and FAST Search for SharePoint.  Key topics are:​

  • Architecture and scalability
  • 2013 Search user experience
  • Live Office Preview using with integration of Office Web Applications
  • Customization of the search presentation, using HTML display templates rather than XSLT
  • Concept of Search Verticals
  • Managed Metadata driven refinement
  • The new Content Search web part - killer replacement for the Content Query web part
  • Topic pages - leveraging managed Metadata Navigation, Content By Search web part and Improved Keyword Query Language
  • Cross-site publishing to share content between sites or even farms
  • SEO enhancements - end user and search engine friendly URLs, on page SEO properties, auto-generated XML site map
  • Usage Analytics - feeding right back into Search, usage based ranking, no. of views information in search results
  • Top Viewed Pages - pre-configured Content Search web part
