Some quick notes (more a braindump) about the last SharePoint User Group in Munich (6/14/2016) with Samuel Zuercher. Samuel was apparently a little sick, but still presented remotely!
That was one of the funniest User Group in a while, I had good fun and Samuel delivered some solid info about SharePoint 2016 hybrid story.
Hybrid Overview by Samuel Zuercher
SharePoint is like iceberg, management and end users only see the tip of it - Samuel Zuercher
Out of the box newsfeed not recommended. 100% same functionality as for SP2013, maybe even the exact same code.
Provisioning: App Model und Remote Provisioning (officepnp)
Teamsite template is the only good template - Samuel Zuercher
Provision site templates with site deletion policy to implement governance.
Configuration is complex, script-based solution is available makes your life easier!
Solid session, free beer (thanks AvePoint!) and many like-minded! Good stuff!
