Microsoft's Latest Web Technology Comes into Focus
With expert Don Kiely
Recorded on December 14, 2016

Microsoft is in the early process of the first major overhaul of the .NET Framework platform in some 15 years. ASP.NET Core is not the next version of ASP.NET, but a complete rewrite from the ground up made to support the modern Web. It’s so new and different that there isn't even a well-defined migration path from old to new. If you have experience with classic ASP.NET you'll be familiar with a lot in ASP.NET Core, but most of it is brand new and far more suited to the challenges of building modern Web applications. We'll explore what's new about this technology both behind the scenes and closer to the surface in your controllers and views.


Rule Over Your Data with R
With expert Kevin McCarty
Recorded on November 30, 2016

Data Science is one of the hottest topics in the IT industry. The R language has gone from being relatively obscure to being the number one language for data science. R is widely used because of its ability to quickly and easily manage data and tap into thousands of special purpose libraries to do everything from statistical modeling to image processing. We'll utilize the power of R to explore data in order to derive a better understanding of the data itself and predict classifications of related data based upon that understanding.


Workflow Supersized in SharePoint 2016
With expert Philip Wheat
Recorded on November 09, 2016

One of the most powerful, yet possibly one of the most underutilized features within SharePoint is workflows. Workflows provide users with the ability to automate complex business processes, saving them both time and effort. However, due to the frequent changes Microsoft has made to the SharePoint platform combined with the challenges of learning how to use this feature, many users failed to take advantage of it. That's why, in SharePoint 2016, Microsoft has taken a different approach to workflows by introducing Microsoft Flow. We'll explore flow and what it can mean for not only your SharePoint implementation but also other systems that you work with.
