I’m excited that I’ll not only attend the SharePoint Conference 2008 in Seattle, WA in March 2008, but I’m also presenting two sessions!
- Structured Approach to Building MOSS 2007 Publishing Sites“SharePoint doesn’t support source control.” “SharePoint doesn’t follow good SDL or change control processes.” “Developers have to use SharePoint Designer to create Publishing sites.” Heard these before? Guess what? All these myths are completely untrue. Unlike many traditional SharePoint projects, Publishing sites frequently require following an organizations change control process, software development lifecycle processes and integration within source control. Not only is it possible to follow all of these common development guidelines in SharePoint, it is a lot easier than you may think. In this session we’ll take a look at how this is possible by obtaining a better grasp of the inner workings of SharePoint, how you can make sure your development team leverages this, as well as some tips and tricks in how to achieve it.
- Using MOSS 2007 to Create Content-Centric Internet Facing Publishing Sites using Web Content ManagementThis session provides an overview of the Web Content Management features in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Understand the Web page model and how it takes advantage of common SharePoint features to deliver rich Web pages. Learn how authors can create Web pages in-context and using applications such as Microsoft Office Word that stay in synch with your Web site’s look and feel. Also, see how site managers can control what content gets published, using features like workflow and scheduling.
This conference is much more suited to SharePoint professionals, information workers and administrators than the developer crowd. If you are looking for more SharePoint developer oriented content, you should consider the Office Developer Conference 2008 in San Jose, CA in February 2008 which I’ll be presenting two sessions at as well.
