A few weeks ago it was the time of the year that the signing certificate of ADFS was expiring. Last year it took us by surprise because the ADFS team did not notify us and we did not put it in our agenda’s that the certificate would expire. So last year we had a lot of people complaining that SharePoint 2013 was not available anymore. This year we had it in our agenda’s that the certificate would roll over, so we were prepared for a roll over and had contact with the ADFS team and made an arrangement to roll over the certificate.

Two weeks after my visit to SharePoint Saturday Paris I visited SharePoint Saturday Netherlands. The schedule for today was a bit more relaxed than in Paris. We had 4 session slots of 75 minutes with great sessions and more time in between the sessions to have a chat with sponsors, trying out the HoloLens and playing some games. The HoloLens is a very cool device and I tried it here for the first time.
On May 28th 2016 I visited SharePoint Saturday in Paris (http://www.spsevents.org/city/Paris/Paris2016/). The event was held in the Montparnasse Tower in the center of Paris on the 40th floor. We had an amazing view from that height. This article contains my notes of the day. Start of the day We had some trouble getting in the building because of some regulations of the building owner, but when we were all registered we could go all the way up to the 40th floor.
