New Releases & Upcoming Events…

I have been absent from the blog for a few weeks, but things should be picking back up soon! I wanted to do a quick post on some of the newest things going on in my world.

First, I wanted to let everyone know that two of my co-workers (John Ross & Nicola Young) have just released a new book- MOSS Explained: An Information Worker’s Deep Dive into Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. This is definitely a great resource to add to your collection! It covers just about everything that an information worker needs to know about working with MOSS. You won’t be disapointed with the content! Here is the link on Amazon-

Second, I wanted to let everyone know about a few training/conference opportunitys that are coming up.

I will be teaching the Ted Pattison course- SAB301: Building Enterprise Solutions with SharePoint Server 2007 on March 30th in Irvine, CA.

“This intensive 4-day course demonstrates how to make the most out of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS) and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS) without having to engage in any custom development. You will be shown how to create business solution using nothing more than the browser and Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 (SPD). The course is designed to teach you and give you hands-on experience with the most valuable functionality of MOSS Enterprise Edition including its portal and search features and its infrastructure for Web Content Management (WCM), business process automation and Business Intelligence (BI).”

This is a great class if you are wondering what more you can be doing with MOSS and how to use it to build powerful solutions. And better yet….it is in CA  To get more information or to register for the class, use this link:

I also wanted to let everyone know that I will be speaking at SPTechCon in Boston on June 22nd-24th. I am going to cover two sessions-

Getting Started With SharePoint Workflows
Jennifer Mason
SharePoint Workflows sound like a great idea, but how do you get started? Custom workflows can streamline your business processes by automating them! This class not only will walk you through the built-in workflows included with SharePoint Server, but will also teach you how to create your own custom workflows using SharePoint Designer so that your business can work smarter, not harder.


Building an Effective SharePoint Team
Jennifer Mason
SharePoint projects start with good teams. This session will help SharePoint Project Managers and technical leads gain an understanding of how to ramp up a team to start working on SharePoint projects, giving them a better understanding of the skill sets needed for specific types of SharePoint projects, how to acquire the skills if they don’t already have them, and how high-performing SharePoint teams function.

We had an awesome time at SPTechCon in San Francisco and I am looking forward to Boston! To get a complete list of sessions and registration information use this link:
