I attended the inaugural DDD conference in the MODE space in Adelaide over the weekend. It was a great day, attendance was high, coffee and food was abundant and the session on offer were interesting giving plenty of new learning opportunities and insights into how others tackle common issues and challenges.
Speaker – Chris Grist / KKit Good coverage for an introduction session, Flow has certainly grown rapidly over the past few years and to get an introduction on where it is currently was useful. Always worth see how others are dealing with limitations of products and seeing how Chris commonly deals with conditional starting triggers for a flow was valuable.
Brining Human Emotion into Workflow Automation
Speaker – Chris Ellis / Nintex Always love a good Nintex demo, and with the plethora of services they now offer, Chris didn’t disappoint. I think he’s competing for the integration of most services in a demo session, most memorable is the integration of cognitive services such as object or face detection from images and text sentiment analysis, feeding into processes and performance action on results.
Introduction to PowerApps
Speaker – Russ Norton / 3grow Seasoned presenter Russ Norton demo the capabiity and pointed out current key limitation in an engaging and humerous way. Good to get a fresh overview of the building blocks and fundamentals of using PowerApps either as a standalone app or a SharePoint list form. PowerApps has grown into a very capable business application builder, but with that also comes complexity.
My Favourite SPFx Solutions
Speaker – Colin Gardner / KKit / Kaboodle A general overview of the SPFx landscape and history of SharePoint development methodologies. Went through a few of the Fab40 web parts and then some of his own custom offerings.
