Speaking at Capital Area .Net SharePoint Special Interest Group

Category : Presenting

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).

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.

Session Details:

Branding Custom Internet Sites in SharePoint 2010

In this session we will discuss branding techniques to create custom internet sites in SharePoint 2010. While SharePoint 2010 introduces many innovative techniques such as the new ribbon, it also produces challenges for designers when the design is built for the Internet. What do you do with the ribbon for anonymous users? How do you deal with fixed width sites when SharePoint 2010 uses JavaScript to dynamically size? How do we deal with the new theming framework? What 508 rules should we keep in mind while working with 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.

Presenting at SharePoint Saturday DC

Category : Presenting

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.
