SharePoint Dev Weekly – Episode 69

In this session of SharePoint Dev Weekly, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), and typically a special guest from the SharePoint PnP Community, discuss the latest news and topics around SharePoint development.

In this episode, Vesa and Waldek are joined by Agnes Molnar, owner of Search Explained based in Budapest, delivering consulting and training services worldwide. In addition to drawing attention to the recent advancements being delivered by the SharePoint Community and Microsoft, Vesa, Waldek and Agnes’ discussion this week centered on why search is again cool. Albeit, with all the new capabilities including AI and auto tagging, the group agrees – humans will not be replaced anytime soon by computers lacking our human experiences, associations, intentions or essence necessary for defining how we shape, interpret and share knowledge with others. And by the way, metadata is not going away either!  Humans remain needed and necessary for curating content and metadata, in addition to teaching computers how find stuff for us more effectively.  Cool!

As always, if you need help on an issue, want to share a discovery, or just want to say: “Job well done”, please reach out to Vesa, to Waldek or to your PnP Community.
