Learn how SharePoint 2013 Has Already Made You the Search Expert in Your Organization
Up until the SharePoint 2013 release, advanced search tuning and
configuration were strictly the domain of search experts. After all, writing
nested FQL expressions, customizing rank profiles with PowerShell, writing
XSLT to customize search results, wiring up dictionaries for entity extraction,
etc. are not for the faint of heart. Though you've likely heard many things
about Microsoft's investment in Search with this release, the most
important is that they have made many of the most advanced and powerful
features, heretofore reserved for search experts, accessible to everyone.

In this session Paul Olenick (SharePoint MVP and Microsoft V-TSP) will
provide an intro and practical guide to using some of the more powerful
Search features in SharePoint 2013 and, for illustration, will show to how
search engineers used to accomplish the same things before this release.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of SharePoint 2013's powerful
features for configuring search, giving them confidence to take search
results in their organization beyond the status quo, without the need for a
highly specialized skillset.
