SharePoint Saturday Netherlands

On March 26th DIWUG and kbWorks organize the first SharePoint Saturday in the Netherlands. The organization of the event is a joined effort together with CodeCamp and will be held in hotel Mitland in Utrecht.
We have an impressive list of speakers lined up for the event and I’ll be speaking myself as well. Tickets are already sold out, so it promises to be a very successful first Dutch SharePoint Saturday.
If you didn’t register yet, but you do want to come you can put yourself on the waiting list and we’ll get back to you if anyone cancels.

On the site you can find all the information about the location, the speakers and the sessions.

We couldn’t have organized this event without the help of our sponsors:

  • e-Office
  • Macaw
  • Microsoft
  • AvePoint
  • Portiva
  • Imtech
  • Nexct
  • Getronics
  • 21Apps

SharePoint Best Practices Conference London

From April 11th till April 13th the coolest and best organized SharePoint Conference from Europe will be held in London again. And for the second year I have to honour of speaking at the SharePoint Best Practices Conference Europe.
The sessions I’ll be presenting there are:

SharePoint 2010 Developer’s Mythbusters
This session will talk about common misconceptions on developing custom solutions for SharePoint. The session will provide best practices, point out gotchas and dive into some IT Pro stuff a developer has to know about in order to be able to build solid SharePoint solutions.

No Code customization for the SharePoint Search center
SharePoint 2010 offers many possibilities for customizing the search center without writing code. Just by using SharePoint Designer and changing some XML and XSLT it is possible to change the search results, add custom filters to the advanced search page, add your own refiners to the refinement web part and do many more things. This session will show you how to do all of that and much more. Needless to say there will be a lot of demos and not so many slides!

Creating Sites, Site Definitions, Web Templates and custom code
Developers have been struggling with the question whether to use site definitions or web templates, or just custom code for years now. Unfortunately there is not one right answer to this question. This session will talk about the pros and cons of the different approaches. After this session you should be able to determine the right approach for your specific scenario.

DevDays and TechNet_Live

On April 27th IT Pro’s have a chance to have a great day out with other people from the Dutch community and attend some interesting sessions at the same time at the Technet_Live event in Den Haag.
At this event I’ll be presenting on:

Document and Records Management in SharePoint 2010 for the IT Pro
This session will work through the new document and records management features in SharePoint 2010. We will dive into the Managed Metadata Service Application, Document Centers, Document ID, Document Sets, Metadata Navigation, List Throttling and the Content Organizer. For all features you will be able to see what they look like for end users, but we will also walk through how to set each of them up. What features will need to be activated and what timer jobs are involved.

The next two days, April 28 and 29 will be dedicated to some developer’s fun, also in Den Haag, at the DevDays.
At DevDays I’ll be presenting on:

Using SharePoint Search to Develop Custom Solutions
SharePoint Search is extremely powerful and flexible. It offers the possibility to retrieve SharePoint data from different sites or libraries without having to iterate through those libraries. It also provides the possibility to retrieve data from non-SharePoint data stores using the same object model. This offers great possibilities to build custom solutions that use data that is indexed by the SharePoint search. This session will show some examples and will explain how to go about building your own custom solutions leveraging the SharePoint Search functionality.

Creating Sites, Site Definitions, Web Templates and custom code
Developers have been struggling with the question whether to use site definitions or web templates, or just custom code for years now. Unfortunately there is not one right answer to this question. This session will talk about the pros and cons of the different approaches. After this session you should be able to determine the right approach for your specific scenario.
