​Topic:  Create dazzling end-user SharePoint applications using Search 

In this demonstration-oriented talk, we will show how the search tools in SharePoint can be used not only to “find stuff in SharePoint”, but also how you can create a vast array of useful applications. This discussion/demo will be end-user friendly as we will be creating no-code applications using out of the box features. We will demo the various elements of search and how to fit them together to create applications. We will be walking through live applications that will demonstrate the practical applications of the demos. These are skills that can be taken and used on your own SharePoint installation without requiring technical programming or administration knowledge.


Speaker:  Bill Crider, Director - SharePoint Products & Services at Ascendum 

Bill Crider was SharePoint when SharePoint wasn’t cool. Cutting his teeth on the 2001 version, and once performing a 2 version “upgrade” from digital dashboard to Portal Server 2003, complete with Kerberos authentication (ugh!) Bill has been working with SharePoint for the past 14 years. Over that time, he has taken on developer, admin, power user and architect roles. Currently he is the director of SharePoint products and services with Ascendum in Cincinnati, focusing on value added services and software for the SharePoint platform. He is the author of the Wrox 24 hour SharePoint administration trainer. He is an on again, off again blogger with dozens of twitter followers who hang on every word of his monthly tweet. From large scale farm installations and upgrades to Airheads candy to helping NFL teams draft players with SharePoint, Bill has enjoyed a wide ranging SharePoint career. When not SharePointing he enjoys various sports, Xbox, playing the violin (fiddle in Kentucky) and all things Russian.
