I had a great evening in San Antonio at the SharePoint User Group (www.sasug.net) hosted at RackSpace. The turn out was good and the audience was fun and engaging. Folks even drove 2 hours from Corpus Christi to attend…that’s dedication. We even had 4 MVPs in attendance, including newly minted MVP Tom Resing. I think that is a local record for a non-SharePoint Saturday event!
I presented SharePoint Search Center Configuration where I compared the differences between working in SharePoint 2010 Search Center and SharePoint 2013. I covered the topics:
- Search Center Basics
- Result Types in SharePoint 2013
- Display Templates in SharePoint 2013
- Search Refinement Compared
- Promoting Content Compared
As always all of my demos and code are available if you like. Here are a few handy links from the end of the presentation:
- The code for my Result Type demo is available here: Item Person Social
- The walk through for creating the Result Type is here: SharePoint 2013 JSOM and Social API
- The walk through for creating the SharePoint 2010 Search Results Page is here: Getting Started with Search Results
Finally, you can download the deck here: SharePoint Search Center Configuration – SA SPUG
…and if I get that one demo working I’ll post it here!
