The SharePoint Technology Conference (aka SPTechCon) is heading back to San Francisco in February. I love San Francisco and I'm looking forward to presenting a few sessions at this show:
- How to Be a SharePoint Developer: So you're a developer, and you've heard about this SharePoint thing and want to jump on the bandwagon? This is the session for you. Here you'll learn about the various options you have in setting up a SharePoint development environment. Then we'll explore the developer tools and build a few common features. Finally, you'll learn the best places to go to get information and help going forward, including books, classes and online forums.
- Developing with SharePoint Server 2010 Metadata: The Managed Metadata Service application in SharePoint 2010 allows users to create and utilize taxonomies in various ways. Microsoft has included a robust taxonomy API in SharePoint 2010 that can be leveraged in custom solutions. In this session, we'll explore how you can interact with taxonomies within the Managed Metadata Service application, as well as work with metadata columns in custom solutions from a development perspective.
- Out of the Sandbox and into the Cloud: Build Your App on Azure: Have you evaluated Sandbox solutions and know you are going to need more flexibility, control and power? We will show you a new, innovative approach to building your next SharePoint application that lets you take advantage of all the power of Azure and ASP.Net, while leveraging all that SharePoint has to offer. Your users will have no idea your application is in the cloud!
