My session is Exploring SharePoint 2013 cross-site publishing (Arabic)

SharePoint 2013 introduced a lot of new features in WCM. Cross-site publishing is a great feature that allows the site authors to publish content cross sites and manage the publishing through managed metadata, search, content search web parts and display template. In this session I am going to walkthrough what you need to plan for building a site that can benefit from cross-site publishing.

InfoPath is disappearing

Office team announced today that they are retiring InfoPath and investing in new forms technology across SharePoint, Access, and Word.

It was obvious to the community that this is coming after the release of InfoPath 2013, which didn’t include any new major enhancements, and SharePoint workflows moved away from using InfoPath forms.

Microsoft will show a sneak peek of their plans in SPC14, “InfoPath and SharePoint Forms Roadmap” session.

Please read the full announcement here Update on InfoPath and SharePoint Forms | Office Blogs
