Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Austin

I am pleased to announce that I will be presenting at SharePoint Saturday Austin on January 21st, 2012, presenting my session on Planning and Configuring Extranets in SharePoint 2010, with my colleague Donal Conlon.

Information on the session is below:

Planning and Configuring Extranets in SharePoint 2010

Session Level: 300
Session Type: IT Pro / Admin
Most companies, large or small, require contact and collaboration with external entities, whether they are vendors, clients, or contractors. SharePoint gives us the ability to open up portals for collaboration with these external entities – this session will show you how to accomplish this using SharePoint 2010.

We will review what is required to make SharePoint “open” to the external world, discuss scenarios regarding security and privacy, as well as walk through configuring Forms Based Authentication, Claims Based Authentication, as well as using Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2010, to authenticate, and manage our external users.

Once completing this session, you should have a firm grasp on how to configure an extranet environment using SharePoint 2010, as well as what should be considered during the planning of your extranet scenarios.

I will also be giving away 2 copies of the book I am working on of the same subject.
