#SPSColumbus, #BPC10, #SPTechCon & the book……

I have definitely been off the grid lately! I have been working on finishing up our book and to be honest that took just about everything I had, so sadly blogging got put on the back burner. The book is almost done, so I should be able to pick up blogging again. I wanted to start by sharing a few of the different events I will be at this year:

First off, here is the link to the book that I have been working on. It will be released later this fall. I have had an opportunity to work with some great co-authors and I am very excited to see the final product!

Beginning SharePoint 2010: Building Business Solutions with SharePoint

Next up is SharePoint Saturday Columbus. We have been planning the first SPS event in Columbus and we have had some great responses! I hope if you are in the Columbus area that you will be joining us!

Here is the session I will be leading at SPSColumbus:

Working with Lists and Libraries in SharePoint 2010

Do you know all of the different things you can do using SharePoint lists and libraries? In this session, we will take a look at the different out-of-the-box list features and how they can be combined to build powerful no-code business solutions. We will look at the new features available in SharePoint 2010 and how they can be used to increase productivity. Some of the new features include working with lookup columns, new list settings, new view settings, inline editing and custom form creation.


Following SPSColumbus will be the Best Practices conference. This will be my first time attending / speaker and I am very excited! This is one of those conferences where you really get to dig into the “why” you should be doing things, or not doing things. There is an excellent line up of speakers and I am honored to be able to speak alongside them. In addition to conference sessions they have several “Ask the Experts” events as well as full day conference sessions. If you haven’t checked out this conference yet, you should! Registration is still open, so it is not too late to make plans to attend!

Here are the two sessions I will be leading at BPC10:

Best Practices for Managing an Effective SharePoint Team

At the root of every successful SharePoint implementation is a team supporting it and making it possible. But how did the team get started and who should be part of the team? In this session we will look at the best practice guidelines for building and maintaining an efficient SharePoint team.

Building Solutions that Users Get

There are many different ways to build solutions within SharePoint, from lists and libraries to workflows and alerts. How do you know what approach will work best for the solution you are building? In this session we will look at some best practices that can be followed to ensure that the approach you are taking with your site design is an approach that your users will understand. We will review what key factors should be considered up front to ensure that any solutions you develop are understood and embraced by your users.

And finally, this October I will be back in Boston for SPTechCon. I have been able to speak at all of the SPTechCon events so far and must say this is one of my favorite conferences. The atmosphere is small enough to make good connections, yet large enough to really get to see how the rest of the world does things!

Creating an Electronic Forms Solution Using InfoPath and SharePoint

Paper, paper everywhere! There are so many forms in an office to keep track of that the task can overwhelm both the people who create the forms and those who fill them out. This class will show you how to ensure everyone is using the correct version of the form and create dynamic forms using InfoPath 2007 and the Forms Server capabilities built into SharePoint.

I really hope to see some of you at these events! Hopefully in the next week I can start back up with my blogging and can get around to answering some of the comments that have been posted to the blog. I just need a few more hours in each day
