SPTechCon in San Francisco 2/7–2-9/2011

It’s almost time for the SharePoint Technology conference again!  This time it’s in San Francisco:

I’ll be presenting the following sessions at this conference, and will be looking forward to seeing you there! I’ll also be working in the SharePoint911 booth, so come stop by and say HI.

Half Day Workshops
New! InfoPath Immersion

InfoPath is an application that has been a part of the Microsoft Office suite of products since 2003. It is a powerful form-creation tool that lets you create highly customized and professional-looking business forms, without writing any code. This product is used in conjunction with SharePoint for form submission. In this full-day session, Laura Rogers will teach you everything you need to know about InfoPath forms. Some basics will be covered, along with common practices for form-submission approval processes and how SharePoint workflows can tie in. The information that will be taught in this session is not only applicable in the 2010 products, but can be applied in SharePoint/InfoPath 2007 as well. Since there is so much to look forward in 2010, we will also go over many of the new features, and will highlight and demonstrate SharePoint list forms, workflow forms, and more. When you walk away from this session, you will be confident that whatever forms and processes the business throws at you, you will be able to create solutions using the best practices and examples that you learn.


SharePoint 2010 & Office 2010 Integration

This beginner-level session will help end users, project managers and information workers to discover the best ways to tackle your daily work with the 2010 Microsoft Office system. Tips include how to use Outlook to keep all your SharePoint lists and libraries within easy reach, and how to display library metadata within Word documents. From offline document editing and version comparisons, to reporting on SharePoint library data, this session is packed with tricks you can use to increase your SharePoint productivity. Think about integration from an end user’s perspective and come learn topics, such as how to make it simple to save files directly to SharePoint and work more efficiently. The demonstration will feature a company policy management system, and will feature Access custom lists, content types and quick parts. Many of the integration points are available in both the 2007 and the 2010 suites of products. Integration improvements in SharePoint and Office 2010 will also be highlighted, such as those in InfoPath Forms Services, Visio Services and Access Services.

Technical Classes

504: The Power of Content Types

In SharePoint, the concept of content types seems a bit ambiguous to most people, which becomes a negative factor when it comes to actual use of this feature. In this session, Laura Rogers will teach you what you need to know about content types to be able to implement them in your company. You may have heard that content types can be used in order to upload document templates so that they display as choices for users on a library’s “New” button. Yes, that can be done… but wait, there’s so much more! In conjunction with site columns, content types can be utilized to create custom business solutions. Take your lists and libraries to the next level without having to do any custom development. In this session, demonstrations will be done to take you through common scenarios, and show how to use the power of content types in SharePoint. Many of these concepts carry over from SharePoint 2007 to 2010, but new 2010 capabilities will be highlighted.

706: Form Approval Process – Best Practices

In your company, forms are everywhere, and they usually have some type of workflow associated with them.  Approval workflows are a very common request in SharePoint, and there are several different ways to go about creating this process.  SharePoint Designer and InfoPath are common tools that are used to not only create the business form, but to run it through an approval.  Depending on the business requirements, there are different best practices involved.  In this session, attendees will learn how SharePoint 2010 and InfoPath 2010 can be leveraged the most efficiently to create an approval process that is best for the specific project.   Improvements from 2007 to 2010 will also be discussed.TECHNICAL LEVEL: Beginner/Intermediate
AUDIENCE: End User, Power User, Business Analyst

807: List View/Data View Web Parts in SharePoint 2010

In order to create custom business solutions in SharePoint, data view web parts have often been created using SharePoint Designer.  These data views are commonly used in order to take list and library views to a higher level of customization, without having to write code.  In SharePoint 2010, these web parts have been drastically improved.  In this session, you will learn the differences between the new “XSLT List View” and the trusty Data View Web Part.  You will learn old and new best practices related to list and library web parts, compared to views of other types of data sources…. no programming involved!
