I've agreed to host four sessions at the Asia Pacific MSFT SharePoint Conference 2007 in Sydney, Australia on May 15-16, 2007. All four sessions are on Web Content Management, three of which I'll co-present with Sezai Komur of the Vivid Group... yup, the same Sezai (ok, the only Sezai I know) who authored the CMS->MOSS migration paper I blogged about a few weeks ago.
Sezai blogged about how long his trip is from Perth to Sydney... ha... try Florida to Sydney!
This will be my first trip to Australia... and I'm pumped!
Here are the sessions I'll be presenting:
- DEV13 - Extending MOSS 2007 WCM with custom components for Authoring, Rendering, Navigation, Caching, and OperationsMay 15, 11:00a - 12:00pThe Web Content Management facilities in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) provide a great deal of functionality out of the box, but many areas were meant to be extended with your custom code. This session highlights the potential of custom field controls, components for rendering specific document formats as HTML, and much more.
- UX03 - Building and Branding SharePoint Sites Using new Web Content Management CapabilitiesMay 15, 1:20 - 2:20pAll about how Web Content Management works in Office Server 2007, both for extending portals and for designing and customizing any kind of Web site. This session demonstrates the technologies and features that will help you keep your site looking consistent. It also covers the design of the page rendering model using master pages, page layouts, and content pages, as well as some more advanced features like variations (used to simplify creating sites for multiple languages or device formats).
- ARC05 - Web Content Management OverviewMay 15, 4:10p - 5:10pThis session provides an overview of the new 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.
- ACR13 - Migrating from CMS 2002 to MOSS 2007 Web Content ManagementMay 16, 4:10p - 5:10p Moving a Web application from Microsoft Content Management Server 2002 to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) requires a combination of software tools, content editing procedures, custom component assessments, and a series of best practice recommendations. This session will cover what can be automated and what can't, as well as which procedures will put you on the best track to move up to Microsoft's premiere Web publishing platform.
