MOSS Solution Day – Advanced Portals and Collaboration

I'm back in the classroom again next month delivering a one day training session for Microsoft called "MOSS Solution Day – Advanced Portals and Collaboration". This is going to be in Melbourne on Tuesday October 14th and in Sydney on (updated) November 10th

These sessions are targeted at Solution Architects that already have experience with SharePoint but want to deepen their knowledge in the Portals and Collaboration components. If you'd like to register for either of these sessions, pop along to the Microsoft site at

Tech-Ed 2008 Workflow Presentation

Whew, Tech-Ed Australia is finally over for another year. Boy, that was a hectic week. I came that close to winning a HP tablet pc in the Ask the Experts competition, did three presentations, and met up with a whole bunch of people.

I promised to post a link to my presentation on my blog. So firstly, here is the Form Processes in Minutes not Months     session that I co-presented with Ben Walters of SDM.

This session looked at building an InfoPath 2007 browser based form, and creating a SharePoint Designer workflow to process the request.

If you are going to Tech-Ed in Sydney this week, you can catch me presenting at one of three different sessions:

  • OFC315 - Why Findability Should Be an Organising Principle for Your SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment. Presenting with Ben Curry from MindSharp
  • OFC301 - Form Processes in Minutes, not Months. Presenting with Ben Walters from SDM.
  • MVP307 – SharePoint Monitoring – How to measure the success of your SharePoint implementation. This one is all by myself

I'm looking forward to the event and getting to meet some people I haven't seen in a while.
