CJG – SharePoint 2010 Speaking Engagements

I'm proud to announce that I am getting out of the course ware development cage and that I have a couple of speaking engagements in the next couple of months.  The first is #SPSLA (SharePoint Saturday LA) this Saturday Sept 18th. I'll be speaking on:

  • Service application architecture and building custom service applications (if you are lucky you might get to see my new service application that does Social Computing Filtering!)

 I will also be speaking at SharePoint Palooza in Seattle, WA on Oct 15th, 2010.  I'll be speaking on:

  • PowerPivot:  Learn what PowerPivot is and how to use it and
    how to integrate it with SharePoint 2010.  In this session you will learn
    what many of the DAX expressions are used for, common DAX patterns and how to
    setup your PowerPivot for SharePoint integration.  Chris will also show
    you how to setup automatic data refresh and discuss some of the gotchas of
  • Developing around SharePoint
    2010 Social Computing
    :  Learn how
    the new social computing features really work in SharePoint 2010 and what the
    common object model classes are to utilize these new features in your own
    code.  Topics will include the tagging, metadata terms and the new
    activity stream.  Chris will also demonstrate a technic for filtering
    tagging for governance purposes.
  • Developing with SharePoint
    Search and SharePoint FAST
    :  Learn
    how to bypass the Central Administration and write your own Search management
    tool.  In this session we will explore the Search Object Model, the query
    interfaces and some of the more uncommon extension points of SharePoint Search
    like iFilters and Protocol handlers.  We will also explore the various
    areas in which you can extend FAST Search.

Hope you can join me for these two great events!
