Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars, Reviewed by Bjørn Furuknap at the European SharePoint Conference
Reviewing Mike Fitzmaurice’s sessions is always extremely boring. The TLDR version is: Boringly perfect.
Mike has been presenting for many years all over the world and is one of the most experienced presenters on the scene. In addition, he’s presenting on a topic that is his job, full-time, namely SharePoint workflows.
In his traditional and casual style, Mike makes the room feel very included and relaxed. He executes his demonstrations perfectly (although he did make a couple of minor and largely irrelevant mistakes) and it feels like someone is demonstrating something extremely easy like Angry Birds.
For this session, Mike explained a completely new concept, at least in SharePoint Designer workflows, the stages functionality. As you’d expect, everything worked without a flaw, and to the extent something happened that was unexpected, Mike recovers like even the mistakes were rehearsed.
So, sorry Mike, this was just plain boring. Next time, I’ll ask you to figure out the square root of minus one using a workflow, just to throw you off guard. I’m sure you’d handle that too, though.
Microsoft messaging rating: There was none.
