I get the awesome opportunity to speak at the Austin SharePoint User Group tomorrow. I hear that the tickets have sold out, so I am looking forward to a great night with the local community!
The topic I will be presenting is:
Creating Simple Dashboards Using Out-of-the-Box Web Parts
In this session, we will look at some basic out-of-the-box ways to create powerful dashboards for managing teams and projects. Our dashboards will be created using multiple connected Web Parts all configured from the browser. This class will give you a good overview of lists, views, Web Part pages and Web Part connections. This is a great class for those just getting started with SharePoint and want to push the limits of out-of-the-box configuration.
I have uploaded a copy of my presentation to my blog. I hope you find it helpful!
