No notes for slide
  • Built award winning web sites for a wide range of verticals
  • We take the same artefacts , push them into SharePointSharePoint auto-converts the HTML in a usable masterpageYou can then use the snippet gallery to add content zones, a search box, global and current navigation, web part zones etc. You do all this editing using your preferred HTML editor like Adobe Dreamweaver, Notepad++, Eclipse, NetBeans etc… WYSIWIG or Code editor.
  • Not sure if any of you know Randy Drisgill but he came up with a way to describe SharePoint Branding using effort levels. I think that it conveys very well the change between 2010 and 2013.Note: 2013  Composed looks is like Wordpress theming engine, many ship OOTBPicks an existing Site Layout (Really an existing Masterpage), a color palette (.spcolor), an image that can be replaced with a custom, and a font scheme (.spfont) (Office 365 had 41 composed looks) (18 On-Prem)Toggle to Office365 screen without an official Demo Pick one and show the second screen with Layout, color, font & image.
  • You now design using web standards that you’ve all done if you’ve ever built a websiteYou can target mobile, desktop and tablets from the same URL using device ChannelsYou can use REST to create iPhone/Android/WP8 Apps that expose SharePoint contentSharePoint also has reduced the core CSS files by streamlining the classes and having the SharePoint team justify every new class that was created. They ended up with more lines of CSS but still are more efficient.
  • Traditional Site StructureCreate terms in the term storeMention – We are going to talk more about Managed Navigation further more; more specifically how we can drive dynamic content into a website using the term store and searchSo the term store will enhance my navigation structure and has a great impact on multilingual sites
  • A lot of enhancements in 2013 variations that I am going to show you in the demoNew service has been added in 2013 for translationMachine using Bing TranslatorHuman using XLIFF based format. If you are not familiar with it, this is an XML based file that is used with translation companiesVariations hiccups: In the past we have seen scenarios were target pages are not created or the variation relationship between pages are broken
  • Terms are mapped only to pages itemsWhy am I using term sets for translation?
  • Create content in an Authoring environment and use it in any one of your SharePoint publishing environments.This is done by exposing content put in a catalog in your internal authoring environment (a catalog is a SP List with the setting set to it being a catalog) Better to create using the catalog template but you can apply manually.Using Search and MMS allows to expose this content to Publishing sites. It allows you to publish to multiple external sites (IE: Samsung Canada, Samsung, Europe, Samsung US etc..)Expose in multi-lingual sitesNote: Catalogs are crawled in a special way by search to expose it to the content search web part
  • In this slide I am going to show how we can take advantage of dynamic content using search and the term store.
  • The content search webpart can be customized using display templates. Many ship ootb but you can roll your own using again standard HTML, JS, CSSIt allows you do simple lists, more complete product description grids, image rotators etc. All driven from the same webpart.You can specify how this webpart processes the query to allow you to expose featured content over other. It presents you with a dynamic live preview so you see the expected results as you build your query
  • This diagram shows the underlying search topology in 2013. If you notice the item in the middle with the green highlight, (item 3) this is the analytics processing engine. It analyses the behavior of your users towards served search results, which items are clicked more often, first, etc and uses this compiled data to serve recommendations to your users. (IE – Search for a laptop, get laptop bags, cooling pad etc.)

Tailor designs and target devices with device channels. Create Mobile Apps with REST APIs. SharePoint core CSS files has been re-architected Reduce bytes-over-the-wire & complicated CSS hierarchy.
