Speaking at Week3–Collaboration Technology Interest Group on September 21st, 2011

image

One of the groups I help out with has been Week3. And while I have helped in the planning and marketing of it for some time, I have yet to speak for one of its online sessions. This is changing next month, I will be presenting a session on search. See below for more information on Week3, as well as the session, and I hope you can make it! (it’s free, and online!)

 

Who? What? Where? – Searching in SharePoint

This session will cover the importance of search in a SharePoint environment, as well has how to make use of it from the end user, site collection administrator level. We will not discuss search architecture, or managing search in Central Administration. This session will focus on finding information, as well as making information findable.

When: September 21st, 2011 – 11AM EST

Register: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/898927585

 

What is Week3?

We are an online interest group designed to provide a platform of discussion and learning around how collaboration technologies can optimize business productivity. Our focus is on ROI, not code.

Week3’s mission is to create an open, unbiased community of business professionals, dedicated to the growth and development of collaboration techniques, using technologies such as Microsoft SharePoint (2010, MOSS, WSS) as a means to improving organizational productivity.

Registration open for Boston Area SharePoint Users Group on 12/8/10

BASPUG_100square_initialsRegistration is now open for the December 8th, 2010 meeting of the Boston Area SharePoint Users Group, back again on our home turf at the Microsoft NERD center in Cambridge, MA.

 

PRESENTER

Our presenter for our next meeting Is Marc Anderson, President and Founder of Sympraxis Consulting. He will be presenting "Developing in SharePoint’s Middle Tier".

SESSION ABSTRACT

While most of the market focus in SharePoint development lies with .NET skills and techniques, there is a rich middle ground which has been rapidly gathering a following. Developing in the Middle Tier with SharePoint Designer, Data View Web Parts (DVWPs), jQuery, and the SharePoint Web Services using SPServices, you can build rich solutions with no risk of deploying managed code to your SharePoint servers. 

In this session, Marc will show examples of Middle Tier development techniques and answer your questions about when Middle Tier development may prove to be a highly viable alternative to traditional .NET development.

About Marc

Marc is the Co-Founder and President of Sympraxis Consulting LLC, located in the Boston suburb of Newton, Mass. He has more than 25 years of experience in technology, professional services, and software development. Marc is the developer of the jQuery Library for SharePoint Web Services (aka SPServices) and a faculty member at the USPJ Academy focused on Middle Tier Development with SharePoint.
