I'll be presenting at the SharePoint Pro 2010 Summit and Expo in Las Vegas, NV (March 16-19, 2010)

Ahh… another Vegas trip on the horizon! Next year’s spring SharePoint Connections show has been renamed to the SharePoint Pro 2010 Summit and Expo conference. In addition, it’s been moved from the traditional Orlando venue in the spring to the beautiful Bellagio hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Join me along with other great SharePoint developer presenters like Ted Pattison , Scot Hillier , Asif Rehmani , Rob Bogue , Kirk Evans and John Holliday ! This should be an exciting show as it’s billed as the show to get the release details on SharePoint 2010… maybe timing is perfect!

I’ll personally be presenting three sessions at this show… hope to see you there!

  • Upgrading and Extending SharePoint 2007 WCM Sites with SharePoint Server 2010 Web Content ManagementIn this session you’ll see how to upgrade a SharePoint 2007 WCM site to SharePoint Server 2010 WCM and leverage some of the new capabilities. After upgrading the site, you’ll learn how to implement the ribbon and convert to the new SharePoint 2010 UI visuals. Next you’ll see how to add ratings and use the content organizer.
  • Customizing SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Content Management Document SetsSharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) introduces a new concept called document sets. These enable you to create a single work product made up of multiple components. In this session you’ll learn how to create customizeable document sets, custom welcome pages and much more!
  • Interacting with SharePoint 2010 off the Server: Introducing the Client Object ModelThis session demonstrates client object model, new to SharePoint 2010. This addition makes it much easier for developers to create custom solitions that leverage data stored in SharePoint from off the SharePoint server with a familiar API and without traditional Web services. Topics covered include the .NET and Silverlight managed client object models as well as the ECMAScript object model.
