If you’re new to SharePoint and want to know what you can do with lists and libraries, then this is the session for you! We’ll explain document libraries and lists, and look at what you get out of the box. We’ll look at how to add custom columns, alerts, views and even explore the workflows that are baked in with the different versions of SharePoint. No tools needed here, just your everyday web browser.

Has your organization been on SharePoint and InfoPath 2007 but is now ready to move to 2010? Have you never used InfoPath and are eager to know what it can do? Either way, this session will be for you. We will cover what I consider to be the most useful features in InfoPath for helping you create powerful electronic form solutions without writing code. Bring your questions whether you’ve never touched InfoPath or already have it in your main tool belt.
Microsoft has unleashed their cloud strategy and Office 365 is now publically available. What does this mean for organizations using SharePoint today? How can organizations leverage the Microsoft cloud effectively with their SharePoint implementations and future SharePoint Strategies?
In the marketplace, information on SharePoint ‘and the cloud’ abounds. Much of this information is fluffy, ‘cloud-like’ marketing material, or does not clearly explain how businesses can practically leverage “Cloud” technology with SharePoint. Join Richard as he discusses the practical application of Microsoft's cloud technology and SharePoint, when it has brought measurable benefit to organizations, and when to avoid it.
Geared toward companies struggling with understanding what SharePoint in the Cloud really is, those that have not yet implemented SharePoint 2010 and those looking to migrate.
Using SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authentication to extend the out-of-the-box functionality to support multiple authentication providers. This includes custom FBA authentication using default SQL authentication, a custom membership provider using a simple database table containing user accounts. Also, a custom membership provider using Twitter (OAuth) to authenticate remote users will be demonstrated, showing how SharePoint can leverage newer paradigms with user identities on the web (in the Cloud!). Additionally, intranet and internet login concepts will be covered to handle anonymous, semi-anonymous and protected web sites. Examples will be shown for each of the concepts demonstrated, keeping the presentation interactive and showing the pro/cons of each concept.
Anyone who tells you that SharePoint Administration is painless has never tried it. There are no “It’s so easy, a caveman can do it” commercials for being a SharePoint Admin. Are you thinking about installing SharePoint for the first time, in the middle of a migration from SharePoint 2007 to 2010, or a seasoned veteran who is looking to hear about some of the pain points that you might encounter as you continue to grow your SharePoint Farm?
No matter your level of engagement with SharePoint Administration, you will find value in this session where we share with you some of the most common mistakes, pain causing issues, “hidden features” and gaping holes with the product that we have found, troubleshot, beaten into submission where possible, and on rare occasion surrendered to.
Join us as we come out from the trenches to share these real-world lessons learned, the occasion tale of woe, and many exciting “war stories” about our battles with SharePoint Administration over the years.
