As I discussed in my last post titled “SPTechCon Austin 2016 And Death By Demo,” the demonstrations I intended to deliver at SPTechCon in Austin a week and a half ago didn’t go very well. In fact, they didn’t really go at all due to some extremely odd technical circumstances. To make up for the lack of demo content, I promised attendees that I would put together video walk-throughs for each of the demos I had intended to deliver at SPTechCon.
It took a little longer than initially anticipated, but the half-dozen links below represent the demo material I would normally walk through during a delivery of my “SharePoint’s New Swiss Army Knife: The Content Search Web Part” session. If there’s a silver lining to the fact that I’m doing the demos after the actual presentation, it’s that I was able to take more time than I normally have (within the context of a 75 minute session) to show some extra content and go off the beaten path a bit more.
So, for those of you who have been waiting … here are the goods!
- DEMO 1: Meet the Demo Web Site + Identifying Content Search Web Parts (duration: 7:01)
- DEMO 2: Plain Old Search Results with the Content Search Web Part (duration: 4:05)
- DEMO 3: Content Search Rollups with the Content Search Web Part (duration: 4:52)
- DEMO 4: Common Problems and Watch-outs with the Content Search Web Part (duration: 9:42)
- DEMO 5: Working with the Content Search Web Part (duration: 12:34)
- DEMO 6: Display Templates and the Content Search Web Part (duration: 19:35)
These videos were recorded with Camtasia and rendered directly out to YouTube. I made every attempt to keep the quality high, but if something gets “lost in translation” or you have other issues, please let me know.
I enjoyed putting these videos together, and in the past I’ve tossed around the idea of doing more videos like this. If these CSWP videos were helpful to you and/or you’d like to see more, please let me know. If enough of you find value in these, I’d be willing to put together additional videos for some of the other presentations and workshops I deliver.
Enjoy, and as with everything else, I welcome your feedback!
