Presented by Ulysses Ludwig and Colin Spence
Ever feel like the more you learn about SharePoint 2010 the more questions you have and the more work you realize you have to do? Do you have a SharePoint environment that just isn’t living up to its potential? Wouldn't it be great if you could hear from experts out in the field who work with hundreds of different companies and help these companies implement SharePoint-based solutions of every shape and size?
In these sessions, you will learn how to design, implement, govern, customize, brand, develop, troubleshoot, and administer SharePoint 2010. During each session we'll get into the finer details of all parts of SharePoint and provide tips and tricks and best practices to enhance your skills in designing, implementing, and governing your SharePoint environment.
Session 1: Design and Architecture Fundamentals
This first session kicks off the series by imparting wisdom and best practices on what organizations of varying sizes are implementing in terms of the foundation for the SharePoint 2010 solutions they are then building. Key topics will be covered to allow attendees to craft “roadmaps” that meet their organization’s unique needs.
Session 2: Configuring the Environment, Part I: Look and Feel and User Experience
This session builds upon the foundation created in Session 1 by covering the process of installing and customizing the SharePoint software. Best practices and pitfalls will be covered from the installation process to creating the site collections and implementing effective navigation and branding.
Session 3: Configuring the Environment, Part II: Tools and Features
This session delves into the main “containers” and “moving parts” of the SharePoint 2010 environment that end users will be working with every day, and are arguably the most important components of a successful SharePoint implementation.
Session 4: Application Development Options
In this session Ulysses will present SharePoint and it’s out of the box tools as an alternative to Visual Studio and ASP.NET applications. SharePoint’s out of the box features coupled with SharePoint Designer, InfoPath, and SSRS integration makes it a contender as an application host that rivals that of custom Visual Studio applications not to mention the upgradeability and application host benefits provided by SharePoint itself.
Session 5: Building SharePoint Applications
If SharePoint’s out of the box features simply do not fit the bill, there are still tremendous benefits to building an application by embedding the application logic within SharePoint itself.
Session 6: SharePoint Governance Best Practices
In this session Colin will present a framework for governance with respect to SharePoint 2010. Colin will discuss the importance of governance with respect to upgradeability, support, security, compliance, and feature delivery – without a solid governance plan in place a SharePoint environment can quickly degrade and lose user confidence in SharePoint itself.
