We caught up with SharePoint expert Scot Hillier and asked him these 5 SharePoint questions.

#1: What do you think is challenging and/or important for people to learn about SharePoint/Office 365?

The most challenging part of the app development process is managing the security “plumbing” like OAuth. It’s important to learn because it’s the foundation of all modern web development.

#2: What advice would you give new attendees for getting the most out of a tech conference?

Introduce yourself to the speakers. Engage them and get the benefit of their experience and knowledge.

#3: What do you drink at SharePint?

Red wine

#4: What are you most looking forward to at September’s IT/Dev Connections?

Meeting the attendees and hearing their challenges with SharePoint.

#5: Give us the “elevator pitch” about your presentations--what are you going to talk about?

I’m giving the pre-conference seminar on SharePoint App Development. This is an intense one-day class to bring professional developers up to speed on app development.
