Speaking and Sponsoring SharePoint Saturday NYC on July 31st, 2010

It has been a very busy week for me, so even though I received confirmation last weekend, I am just getting around to posting about it now. I was very pleased to find an email in my inbox to find that my session has been accepted for SharePoint Saturday NYC!

SharePoint Saturday NYC will be held at the Microsoft Manhattan Office – more details are on the site here http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/ny/Pages/about.aspx

Also, we will be teaming up with one of our favorite partners, AvePoint, to help sponsor the event (we’ll be raffling off a netbook!)

My session will be on Creating Custom Actions in SharePoint 2010.

Custom Actions control features in SharePoint such as the List Item Menu, the Site Actions menu, toolbars, and the links within the Site Settings page, as well as the Ribbon UI in SharePoint 2010. Learn how to leverage Custom Actions to extend the SharePoint User Interface. This session will describe the basics of Custom Actions, demonstrations to build and apply them in SharePoint, as well as provide resources for additional information.

This session is the 2010 version of the session I have been giving off and on for the past year and a half, upgraded and completely revamped for 2010. If you’ve attended my 2007 version of this session, then you will be in luck, as there is a lot more happening with custom actions in SharePoint 2010, we might need to gloss over some of the base material to build these out.

I will also be covering creating these in SharePoint Designer 2010, and importing them into Visual Studio 2010. Lots of fun and excitement! I hope to see all of my 8 readers there!
