As I mentioned a few months ago there's a roadshow going on across the country put on by the folks who put on SharePoint Connections. I'm presenting three sessions at the San Diego, CA (May 2-4, 2011) stop next week. The sessions I plan to present are as follows:
- Building Silverlight Applications for SharePoint 2010 with MVVMSharePoint 2010 introduced numerous capabilities available to developers for building rich Silverlight applications. In this session we'll take a look at what is available to you specifically in the Client Object Model & REST services. We'll also look into some tips and tricks to improve the performance of your Silverlight application and how to leverage the very popular MVVM design pattern when building applications for SharePoint 2010.
- Creating Content-Centric Sites with SharePoint 2010 Web Content ManagementSharePoint 2010 provides all the tools you need to create content centric Internet/Extranet/Intranet facing solutions that do not fit the mold of traditional SharePoint collaboration solutions. These capabilities, dubbed Web Content Management (WCM), enable content owners and managers to create sites that are consumed by a very large user base. In this session you'll learn how to create compelling content-centric sites using just the browser and SharePoint Designer 2010 including creating custom page types, page templates, modifying the user experience as well as enforcing certain business rules for content publication and storage.
- Developing & Extending SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Content Management Microsoft made considerable investments in the Enterprise Content Management capabilities in SharePoint 2010. While SharePoint 2010 includes many OOTB features, Microsoft has provided many extensibility points for developers to create robust and custom solutions for ECM scenarios. This session you will demonstrate how to create document sets declaratively to promote reuse across multiple SharePoint environments. In addition you will see how to introduce custom business logic into the creation of document IDs and interacting with managed metadata programmatically.
There is still space available to seriously consider jumping on board for San Diego next week!
