Time is certainly flying by! You may remember a blog post of ours back in March titled “Rencore on Tour”, which was our very own guidebook on some of the great events we were lucky to attended between April through to June.

SharePoint Saturday Oslo, Norway. October 17th 2015

bjorvika_panoramaAs we journey to Norway, Hugh will be doing his own talk on JavaScript best practices, Add-in Model and On Premises. If you’re going to SPS Oslo you definitely don’t want to miss this!

Hugh: “My aim for this session is to bring my development experience – and my experience as the Lead Developer at Rencore on SPCAF – to demonstrate how development differs in JavaScript depending on the context you write it. How the structure works, and bring in some groundwork to ensure faster development and less overhead due to bugs and issues that can arise.”

It’s something us and Hugh are very excited about, and attendees can expect to be educated in the following:

  • The development patterns in detail and how they work, so you can keep your code maintainable
  • Top best practices for writing your code, for performance and security
  • How working in each model cloud/hybrid/on premises affects the way you develop
  • Governance decisions when choosing frameworks, and how to interweave this into your support model

On the road again

Our Rencore on Tour journey started all the way back in February of this year and we can’t believe that we are able to finish out the year still attending so many events. The chance to communicate with the SharePoint community across different countries is something we really value and hope to continue into the future. We’ll be looking to rack up the air miles once again next year!
