To everyone who is was up to the challenge of attending my Thursday morning SPC14 session on Display Templates and Query Rules, Thank You! Thank You for getting up early on Thursday and most of all, thanks for being the best audience EVER!! I still have a few posts to put together on the details of each demo. If I am missing one you REALLY want to see ping me on Twitter and let me know which one I am missing.

My Office 365 demo did not go well due to network performance. I put together a video that shows your options for deploying your Display Templates and Query Rules. I’ll create a post with the steps soon too.

Thanks to everyone who attended it was fun to present to such a happy audience!
