Digital Workplace Conference – Melbourne 2018

cameron-dwyer-conference-speaker-digital-workplace-melbourneAs the Digital Workplace Conference comes to a close for another year I’d like to reflect on what a great event this is for the Office 365 and SharePoint community in Australia and thank the people behind the organisation of the conference, in particular Debbie Ireland and Mark Rhodes.

This year I was fortunate enough to be included in the lineup of amazing speakers, many who had travelled internationally to be here for the event.

My session was on the topic of Office Add-in development and I’d like to thank everyone that attended the session and the passionate people who came to talk to me after the session as well. My slide deck is available here:

DWC 2018 – Getting Started with Office Addins

I have in the past pondered if conferences are still relevant in the modern era of video training, social media and plethora of information available on the internet. Two days immersed in this conference gives me no doubt that conferences are still a highly valuable medium for education, awareness, training and more importantly direct and open access to experts. It hard to imagine another environment that brings together so many experts that are happy to discuss and understand your scenarios, pains, challenges and success stories and talk through options, past experience and thoughts on the topics.

Personally I was able to meet some awesome people that I follow and have been “virtually” taking advice from for years.

I also had the opportunity to talk to a lot of attendees and love to hear the many varied stories of how organisations are using the technology and where they are looking to go in future.

Here’s some of my photos from the event.
