SharePoint Community Stuff Updates

It has been a bit quiet over the last few weeks here, while I was in Redmond, undertaking the SharePoint 2010 Microsoft Certified Master training.
I’m back now, so I hope you enjoyed the silence while it lasted…


DIWUG eMagazine
While I was hiding in Redmond, Marianne finished the work on the second DIWUG eMagazine. A big heads-up for Marianne for taking on a lot of the work on her own for this one. The magazine has turned out great again, with a lot of very cool SharePoint articles:

Web Content Management the SharePoint Server 2010 way - Waldek Mastykarz
Themes in SharePoint 2010 - Wictor Wilen
Suggestions for Social and Search in SharePoint 2010 - Andries den Haan
Community Kit for SharePoint Development Tools Edition - Wes Hackett
How to manage your Feature Lifecycle using Feature Versioning - Anders Rask
Architecting Service Applications - Octavie van Haaften
Incorporating External Data in SharePoint 2010 using WCF - Raghavan Ramadurai

Be sure the download the new magazine here.

We are already working on the next magazine, which will be released at the end of September. If you want to sponsor the magazine or write an article for it, please let us know.


SharePoint Featured MVPs on TechNet
I’m one of the 9 MVPs featured on TechNet at the moment. Very cool!
The page can be found here. Each MVP’s page contains a bio, links to blogs and articles, SharePoint forum posts and tweets.


SharePoint Best Practices Conference
From August 24 till August 27 the SharePoint Best Practices Conference will be held again in Washington DC.
This year the keynote will be different. It won’t be a cool story by a SharePoint celebrity, it will be 6 MCMs (Microsoft Certified Masters) sharing what they think it the coolest new thing in SharePoint 2010. I’m very excited to be one of the MCMs presenting on the keynote!
Of course I’m not just flying to Washington for the keynote, I’ll also be presenting and I’ll be on the Ask the Experts panel.
The topics I’ll be presenting on in Washington are:
Scaling SharePoint from small libraries to massive distributed archives
SharePoint 2010 Developer’s Mythbusters

For more information on other speakers, presentations and registration take a look at the Best Practices Conference website.


That’s it for now, but without a doubt there will be new events added to the list. Just stay tuned if you want to know how you can find or avoid me.
