​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Houston SharePoint User Group!


We are a talented community of Houston area individuals that have an interest in SharePoint and associated technologies.  As the cloud continues to gain momentum, the focus of H-SPUG will evolve to include technologies such as Office 365, Azure, PowerBI, ADFS, OAuth, along with Hybrid Cloud and other Microsoft solutions.  In addition to monthly user group meetings, H-SPUG also hosts the SharePoint Saturday Houston event.  Go to the SharePoint Saturday Houston 2015 page for more details.

Technical Presentation
AngularJS In SharePoint

by Troy Mann

Once SharePoint customizations required C# and ASP.NET experience.  However with client side JavaScript and media web parts, it is possible to make sophisticated programs in SharePoint.  Join us in February for an introduction to Angular JS, the most popular JavaScript framework.  Our presentation will focus on the practical aspects of using Angular in SharePoint rather than the technical details. ​
