"Visio with Office 365 SharePoint Online" by Daniel Christian aka Dan Christian

"Visual C#: Working with WCF Data Services" by Jaliya Udagedara

Description: WCF Data Services (formerly known as ADO.NET Data Services and codename is “Astoria”) is a platform for what Microsoft calls Data Services.

This is a component of the .NET Framework that enables you to create services that use the OData (Open Data Protocol) to expose and consume data over the web or intranet by using the semantics of Representational State Transfer (REST).

WCF Data Services supports multiple provider models for exposing data as an OData feed.

In this session let’s see how we can implement WCF Data Services with Entity Framework Provider and Reflection Provider in action. I have contributed to TechNet wiki in related to WCF Data Services by writing couple of articles about WCF Data Services.

"Cross-Linking and Making our Articles Discoverable" by Richard Mueller

Description: The growing number of acronyms and terms used in the Wiki reflects the evolving technologies we deal with.

Rather than explain every term and acronym we use, we can link them to a glossary Wiki. In addition, the use of Portals, Table of Contents, See Also sections, and linking all help to make our articles more useful and more discoverable.

The more links to our articles, the page views they get.

"Transact-SQL: The power of INSTEAD OF Triggers" by Ronen Ariely aka Pituach

Description: A trigger is a special kind of stored procedure that automatically executes when an event occurs in the database server.

For example on select, update, or others DML and DDL query's execution events.

We can create triggers on table to execute after, before, or INSTEAD of event, but a view can be referenced only by an INSTEAD OF trigger. An "INSTEAD of trigger" is executed instead of the original event, and not combining with it.


"Building a Business Intelligence Solution with Power BI Components" by Paul Turley

Description: Use Business Intelligence tools (Power Query, Power Pivot & Power View) to create a complete solution delivering dashboards, self-service and mobile BI.

We will create a solution using a variety of data sources with the Power BI components that can be used on the desktop by Data Analysts, for group collaboration in on-premises SharePoint and in the Microsoft Cloud with Office 365 and the new Power BI Designer Preview.

"Wiki Ninjas Social Media" by Ronen Ariely aka Pituach, Peter Geelen and Sandro Pereira

Description: Best Practices to sharing excellent articles Social Networks.

"Windows Server: Leading Spaces in Active Directory Names" by Richard Mueller

Description: It should be rare to have leading spaces in AD names. But if you do, the objects are difficult to work with. They are hard to even find. Maybe that is why they were created.

This session describes a Wiki that discusses the issues involved. We describe how the idea for the Wiki arose, how the subject was researched, and the features employed to make the article as useful as possible..

Description: BizTalk Server 2013 introduced a couple of new adapters. One of them was the WCF-WebHttp adapter that offers REST Support.

The WCF-WebHttp adapter gives you the ability to send messages to Restful services or receive messages through an exposed endpoint.

With new BizTalk Server 2013 R2 Json support has been added to enhance the ability to integrate with many (cloud) API's that predominantly use REST and the Json format.
