This coming Saturday Aug 14th I will be speaking at SharePoint Saturday Columbus 2010 and next Thursday Aug 19th I will be speaking at the local Central Ohio SharePoint User Group (COSPUG) monthly meeting. If you’ve been following me lately you may have overheard that I’m the lead event coordinator for SharePoint Saturday Columbus. That alone has consumed almost all of my time for the past 3 months, even more so the last month. It has truly been a wild ride so far but the event is coming together really well. I’ll save more about it for my recap post after the event is over. For now I just wanted to give a quick update about these two speaking engagements (nice to be speaking in-state as opposed to out-of-state the past 8 months.) Below are the abstracts for my talks. If you are in the Columbus area feel free to stop on by for either event. Hope to see you there.
Where: SharePoint Saturday Columbus 2010
Title: Managing SharePoint 2010 Farms With PowerShell
Audience and Level: IT Admin, Beginner
Abstract: “Having you been using STSADM (or worse hand editing processes) to manage your SharePoint 2007 farms? Are you hearing about needing to learn PowerShell to manage SharePoint 2010 farms? This session will serve as part introduction to PowerShell and part overview of how you can use PowerShell to more efficiently and effectively manage your SharePoint 2010 farm. This session is targeted to farm administrators and IT pros and no previous experience with PowerShell is required.”
Where: Central Ohio SharePoint User Group (COSPUG)
Title: Real-World Deployment of SharePoint 2007 Solutions
Audience and Level: IT Admin, Intermediate
Abstract: “All I have to do is run some STSADM commands to deploy my SharePoint solutions, right?” If you are saying that to yourself, then you are missing out on some of the more advanced processes you can employ to deploy and maintain your SharePoint solutions and farm. In this session, we will cover lessons learned from three years of deploying and automating SharePoint solutions. This will include using a combination of STSADM, PowerShell, SharePoint API and a number of other tools in a real-world situation to deploy an entire suite of custom SharePoint solutions. This session is targeted to farm administrators and developers. Prior experience with SharePoint solutions, STSADM and minimal PowerShell experience is suggested.
