Arctic SharePoint Challenge 2015 Notes – Part 1

1 minute read

I’m in Oslo at the 5th annual Arctic SharePoint Challenge. This is quite an event. As far as I know, it’s the only hackathon focused purely on SharePoint in the world.

A few stats:

There are also Internet-connected red buttons, a star system map with live Tie Fighter positioning updates, more Web services than you can shake an alien from Alderaan’s finger at, one lynx named Dexter, and so much more I couldn’t possibly list it all. As you can tell from the logo, the theme this year is Star Wars, and everyone is taking it to an extreme in the best possible ways.


Check out the live blogging that’s going on, the leaderboard so far (new badges soon!), and all of the badges teams can get.

I was honored to be invited to be a judge on the jury as well as to give the opening keynote presentation. I decided to talk about Building JavaScript to Stand the Test of Time. Here’s the presentation on SlideShare.

Thanks to our sponsors!


  1. What a great idea for an event. I’ll keep an eye out for the social feeds on it too.

    Also, nice deck on JS (I mean JavaScript … not Jeff Shuey).


Have a thought or opinion?
