Natural Language Processing and SharePoint¶
Wait, what? As in reading what people are saying on my SharePoint site?
Yes, Natural Language Processing (NLP) refers to how computers and humans interact; more specifically, how a computer program can come to understand what we humans are saying, whether we’re writing a sonnet or a scathing review on Netflix.
Many companies turn to NLP techniques in order to get a better understanding of the needs, motivations and problems of their users. Netflix, for example, is well-known for its movie recommendation system, which uses NLP to determine what people are saying about a film or television show. Other sites and applications use NLP to help identify shills, so they can better hide reviews from people who post artificial praise about a product in order to boost the ranking of that product artificially.
Let me whet your appetite, and show you what sorts of things you can do when you apply some of the latest techniques and tools devoted to improving the state of NLP.

Multiple Sites with Varying Designs in a Single CSS File
Hi, everyone! It’s your friendly neighborhood SharePoint hacker Dustin here with a slick trick you have to try out to believe!
Recently, Heather wrote an article (Master Pages, who needs them anyways?) that talked about creating your custom designs in SharePoint using only a single Master Page. From the very first delivery of our SharePoint UI/UX Class, our students have excitedly jumped on board – it’s amazing just how much you can do with a single master page!
One student in particular spoke up: “Okay, great, one master page to rule them all. What about one CSS file? Any fancy tricks that will let me keep all my design work for all the sites and site collections in my entire farm in a single CSS file? Even those department sites that want different colors?”
It didn’t seem like too much to ask. Continue reading Multiple Sites with Varying Designs in a Single CSS File
