Let’s explore cloudbursting (combining a cloud-based & on-premise solution) with a scenario integrating SharePoint 2010 with Windows Azure and Google Maps using the Business Connectivity Services and mobile devices.
Bank of America has the largest corporate SharePoint implementation with over 24,000 SharePoint sites and over 200,000 users. One of the reasons for our high rate of user adoption is our internal SPUG. We hold three weekly meetings (Basic, Advanced, and Designer) run by volunteer power users. Our SPUG hosts a Q&A discussion forum, Knowledge base, and web part library and provides mentoring, tips and tricks, and best practices.
This LT session will cover how we created a successful SPUG and suggestions for starting and running your own internal SPUG.

SPSiteDataQuery is a powerful method of rolling data from child sites up the site hierarchy. This is a great tool for executive dashboard type systems, where many homogeneous child sites with symmetric data types must be combined and aggregated into a high-level display. Using familiar CAML query concepts, wide ranging data can be fetched and brought into a single tabular display. SPSiteDataQuery + LINQ = You are a champion and here is your crown!
Microsoft’s Performance Monitor application makes a wealth of information about the components on the servers. In order to properly diagnose and troubleshoot SharePoint performance problems, SharePoint Admin often depends on a performance monitor (perfmon) log during problem period. Choosing or picking different sets of Performance Counters for SharePoint Servers are sometime cucumbersome and time comsuming. Also few client do not allow to log-in to Production Servers directly. Using Powershell we can achive all the possible scenario and can make re-usable script.
In the live demo will try to show how to make best use of PS and other free tool to make readable report from Perf Mon Counters.
