SPBPUK – The Best Ever

As you probably know, I’ve been in London at the very beginning of April. As my baby girl is only 2.5 months old she was there with me as well as my son aged 3 and husband. It was not to easy to be a mom of two little kids and have two sessions at the same time, but definitely it was worth. The Best Practices Conference was the event best ever I’ve attended: hats off to Steve and Zoe and the other folks at Combined Knowledge: the place, the sessions, the attendees, and everything was superb, I’m very-very proud to be one of their speakers!

If I’d like to summarize the conference it would takes long hours and lots of space: it’s a mission impossible, but I’ve collected a few links for you:

At least but not last, here are my photos of the week and the Conference.

 

Steve, Zoe and everybody: thanks again for this great conference!

 

Just published: Integrating document management systems into Microsoft SharePoint 2007

“When choosing integration, first ask yourself what you'll need to integrate. Documents are more than simple files. Their file format (.doxc, .txt, .pdf, etc.), content and metadata are also important. Decent DMS software handles those parts and makes them available to end users. Also determine what type of integration will best meet your business needs.”
