SPC12 Keynote Notes

Nice little keynote this morning to officially kick off the conference.  They did a nice job, but nothing earth-shattering.  I did like the intro graphics that were reminiscent of the Game of Thrones (HBO) intro sequence.  Smile 

A few tidbits that did get my attention during the session:

  • No more 3-year product cycle.  New features, fixes and bits will be expected every 90 days.  Thanks to the focus on online servers/services.  On premises and private clouds will still be able to receive the updates as well. 
  • Check out the Yammer web parts… they’re doing the ‘crawl, walk, run’ thing.  Good to get started sooner rather than later. 
  • The cool task management stuff we’ve seen and heard of in SharePoint does extend into Outlook.  Now we need Outlook on the Surface RT. 
  • Really great news hearing about the way data is managed for document libraries and versions.  Only storing diffs now – a LOT more efficient. 
  • Oh yea – Yammer is INCLUDED with your Office365 subscriptions.  Nice. 

Oh yea – I also liked the TechNet email that I got DURING the keynote – that RTM bits for SharePoint Server 2013 are now available for download.  Nice timing. 

Someone should go clean Dreamweaver up after that bus ran over it…
