Speaking on SharePoint 2013 Case Study to build Corporate News Application using Cross Site Publishing at SharePoint Fest Chicago 2013

I am privileged to invited as featured speaker at this year’s SharePoint Fest Chicago on Oct 8th. Slalom Consulting is once again proud to be Platinum Sponsor this year. I will be speaking on one of the most fascinating features of SharePoint 2013 and walk through attendees on how to design Corporate News Application using features like traditional SharePoint Publishing features, Managed Metadata Navigation, Catalog libraries, Cross-Site Publishing, Content By Search Web Part, and Display Templates.

Microsoft has demonstrated new Cross-Site Publishing and SharePoint 2013 web content management features zillion times at SPC12 using Product Centric Commerce Site use case scenario but I am yet to see any SharePoint session delivered to demonstrate these features on traditional collaborative applications like Corporate Intranet. If you are lucky to be one of the attendees of this year’s SharePoint Fest Chicago and SharePoint architect working for large organization building Corporate Intranet, topics covered in this session would be most beneficial to you.
