Here is the link to the slides from my presentation at the Capital Area .Net Special Interest Group on methodologies for querying SharePoint lists to build dynamic UI’s in SharePoint 2010.
I am speaking at the Captial Area .Net SharePoint Special Interest Group this Wednesday March 16, 2011. http://caparea.net/Default.aspx?alias=caparea.net/sharepoint
My topic is on using Lists to build the UI in SharePoint 2010:
SharePoint provides many capabilities to dynamically build UI’s based off of List data (Content Query WebParts, Custom WebParts, Office Services, etc…). This session will show some valuable techniques for displaying SharePoint data to produce rich user interfaces. We will discuss pros and cons of different techniques and work through different demos (some of which were actually used on the Treasury.gov implementation of SharePoint 2010).
Here are my slides from my Branding Custom Internet Sites using SharePoint 2010 session at the Microsoft Monthly Public Sector Development Dinner. Thank you to everyone that showed up and thank you for such great comments after the presentation.
MIX11 is Microsoft’s web conference they hold every year. I submitted a proposal in a contest they have where they select the finalist for proposals and people vote on what sessions they want to see at MIX. My proposal was selected as one of the finalist. It is on building accessible websites. Please vote for my proposal here: http://live.visitmix.com/OpenCall/Vote/Session/57.
I’d really appreciate it if you vote for me. Also, can you forward this around to anyone you know?
I am speaking at the Monthly Public Sector Developer Dinner sponsored by Microsoft. My speech will be on branding custom internet sites with SharePoint 2010. In addition to my presentation, Dr “Z” from Microsoft will be presenting on an Introduction to SharePoint 2010 Development.
The event is Wednesday January 26th at the Microsoft office in Reston. I hope everyone can attend.
Here are my slides from my Branding Custom Internet Sites using SharePoint 2010 session at SharePoint Saturday DC Fed. Thank you to everyone that showed up and thank you for such great comments after the presentation.
I am speaking this weekend at SharePoint Saturday DC Federal (http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/dcfederal/default.aspx). I would have posted earlier, but I was a late addition this time.
Branding Custom Internet Sites in SharePoint 2010
This session will address all those questions as we work with a government website for Treasury that has been branded for the Internet based on a design prior to SharePoint 2010.
SharePoint Saturday DC was this past weekend and it was a huge success. This is one of my favorite events to present at. Thank you to everyone in attendance. As promised, I posted my slides for my building custom, accessible SharePoint sites at: http://cid-edc29fe0d60f1fc3.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/AccessibleSP.pptx.
I am presenting at SharePoint Saturday DC on December 5th (http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/dc/default.aspx).
My presentation is on building custom, “accessible” SharePoint sites.
Most of the projects I work on in SharePoint are custom websites built on top of the SharePoint framework. I constantly hear “can you make this site not look like SharePoint”. Most SharePoint developers, architects and designers know the tricks to do this now a days.
Also, the start of my career was in government services. However, the last 5 years have been on the commercial side. It was in the commercial world that I primarily worked with SharePoint. I am now back in the government world again and 508 accessibility is a common requirement. I learned about 508 accessibility when I started my career in government and now I am trying to mesh my SharePoint knowledge with my accessibility knowledge.
This presentation is my attempt to show tricks and tips to make a SharePoint site accessible. This presentation focuses on building “custom” SharePoint sites because I am showing proper custom master pages, page layouts, control adapters, web part zone customizations, etc… I am not concentrating on out-of-the-box SharePoint Intranets, but a lot of the techniques will work either way. The intent of this presentation is to not only show 508 accessibility tricks, but to also show web standard and css tricks that lead to a more accessible/cross-browser websites.
I look forward to this presentation now that this is one of my passion areas that most people don’t concentrate on in SharePoint. However, everyone should think accessibility when using SharePoint as a framework to build custom websites, regardless if you are in the government or not.
I am speaking at the SUGDC annual users conference on June 27th. It should be a good event with a lot of good speakers!
My presentation isn’t on my usual development topics. I am switching it up this time and presenting on the administrative/setup track. My topic is on using Site Collections vs Sites in SharePoint. Yes, I know it doesn’t sound interesting, but I promise I will try to keep everyone interested. I do feel it is one of the most important topics to understand in SharePoint. Almost all the issues I see when I go into my clients stem from an incorrect topology and permission setup. We will cover these situations with a fictitious company walk-through to see how they messed up, what they can do to correct their mistakes and what considerations they need to make.
Below is more information on the conference as a whole:
