We’ve had a few questions about the sequence of things today, especially since the agenda has shifted a bit from what’s on the back of the name tags.
1600 – Judging
We will be doing a round of judging at 16:00 again. Be prepared to update the judges on your progress against the categories as before. At that point, we’ll be looking to understand what you’ve accomplished since the last round of judging on Friday at 1600.
Then we all break, clean up the room, etc.
1700 – “Free time”
1900 – Meetup @ bar
1930 – Challenge fine dinner
2100 – Demos and awards
After dinner, each team will have 7 minutes to present their solution. It should be a “pitch”, with a demo of what you have, remembering that you are mainly pitching to the other teams and esteemed guests. (We judges will have seen most of what you are doing, right?) The categories don’t matter at this point; you should talk about the solution and your results.
Think of it as the first time everyone will be seeing your solution (in many cases this will be true!). Your mission is to convince everyone that your solution is the best. It’s up to you what you emphasize, but here are some angles you could take:
- We built the coolest thing that reflects the theme
- We took on the hardest technical challenges
- We used the highest number of cloud services – the best “mash up”
- We’re the team with the best jokes
- We can do the best multi-media presentation
You won’t know which approach the other teams will take, so plan wisely, especially since we will stop you at 7 minutes. Period.
After the demos, we’ll have a popular vote. Scott has built a cool voting solution on Dynamics we’ll use for this.
Then we judges will deliberate and come back with the awards and WINNER(s)!!!!
2200+ ASPC Party
This is a solution created during Artic SharePoint Challange.. Hope you like it! We know how confusing the security roles in Dynamics CRM can be! Why do we have to assign security roles after we move a user who have the same role in a different department?
In the void – bytes counts. You think that’s air you’re breathing? The Appsters wanted to improve their solution by using the public CDN functionality in SharePoint Online. It’s pretty easy to enable in a tenant. I recommend this Office Dev Center guide for how to do it, and I’m not going into details of exactly that here.
What it does is that enables a library/folder of your choice to be reached from Office 365 using a specific path on the format
https://publiccdn.sharepointonline.com/<tenant host name>/<ID of the public CDN origin>/<sub-path under the origin>
The Appsters’ public CDN URL is
We wanted to share how we work with the Public CDN and Office PnP templates. We are incorporating this into our solution using the CDN URL as a parameter into our pnp-templates.
And for the site logo:
That’s it – happy coding!
We are working on project automation in Dynamics 365. This in order to plan what agents with certain skill sets will be most fitted for the mission. We’re radomizing skill sets in order to use scheduleboards in locating required skill sets.
