The Intrazone, episode 7: “A developer and an end user walk into a bar…”

June 26, 2018

The Intrazone is your bi-weekly conversation and interview podcast hosted by the SharePoint team.

What are “all the unconscious frequencies” developers speak that end users must understand, and vice versa? Maybe only the Babel fish knows. Or maybe, as this episode of The Intrazone podcast unfolds, you, too will be in the know and ready to save Earth (and it’s many custom solutions to come).

This week, Chris and I focus on the important relationship between developers and end users and how the two parties can best work and talk together. Special guests include Julie Turner from Sympraxis Consulting discussing their Talk Therapy approach to building out custom solutions for clients. We also talk with Antoine Faisandier and Juan Larios from Powell Software about how they're using the SharePoint Framework (#SPFx) in the context of helping build out the intranet like a platform, adding their custom components, and unifying it all into a fluid, consistent user experience.

Get your ears ready and grab your developer’s guide to the galaxy, and towel*!
