Ready for SharePoint 2016? Richard chats with Todd Klindt about what's coming in SharePoint 2016, comparing the differences in on-premise and Office 365 versions. Todd talks about the dark times a couple of years ago where it seemed like SharePoint on-premise was over - it was cloud or nothing. But that has changed, today the hybrid option of some SharePoint elements in the cloud and some on-premise is possible. Want to keep your files on-premise but search in the cloud? No problem! How about just externally accessible files in the cloud? Todd talks through all these scenarios - you can do SharePoint the way you want!
Todd has been a professional computer nerd for over 20 years, specializing in SharePoint for the 12 years. His love affair with SharePoint began one slow day at the office when he discovered SharePoint Team Services 1.0 on the Office XP CD that was holding up his coffee cup, and decided to install it. The rest is history. In 2006 he was honored to be awarded the MVP award from Microsoft for Windows SharePoint Services. He has had the pleasure of working with SharePoint farms both large small. He has written several books and magazine articles on SharePoint. Todd has presented sessions on SharePoint at many major conferences both in the United States as well as Europe and Asia and does the user group circuit, SharePoint Saturday events, and the occasional children’s birthday party as well. He chronicles his SharePoint adventures on his blog, http://www.toddklindt.com/blog. His latest book, Professional SharePoint 2013 Administration, published by Wrox is now available at fine booksellers everywhere. You can buy it from Amazon, or buy a signed copy directly from Todd. It's a page turner, it's got action, intrigue, romance, and PowerShell. He is currently working his dream job as a SharePoint consultant at Rackspace where he spends his days fixing broken SharePoint environments and bringing new SharePoint environments into the world.
