Tim Wragg – ‘Adventures in the SharePointDesigner’
The SP Designer is one of the great unknowns with little help and guidance available.
In this session, Tim will help crack open some of its great features and take us through a recent implementation of the Sanctuary Lakes site which incorporates Forms Authentication and integrations with Dynamics CRM and Great Plains – all done through the Designer!.
Chris O’Connor – Visio Integration with SharePoint – using K2 Workflow’s
Chris will present the new Visio 2007 product, focusing on integrating list data from SharePoint for flowcharting, and viewing workflow tasks graphically. The demo will also focus on the new K2[black pearl]workflow tool, with the Visio designer used to create SharePoint workflow’s without the need for any coding or programming skills required.
Also Microsoft Developer Evangelist Andrew Coates contacted us with some awesome news for members who might be interested in sitting certification exams. Microsoft is launching a new certification offer to all User Group members (including MOSSIG members) to encourage MCP / MCTS certification.
This is an opportunity for you to save some money on exams and for the MOSSIG group a chance to win $3000.- worth of goodies to give away.
Here’s what Andrew had to say:
“* We’re making it attractive for UG members to get certified – We’ve got 100 free exam vouchers for UG members who get an MCP or MCTS cert between now and May 31 (pass 1, get 1 free)
* We’re making it competitive between User Groups – the UG with the highest number of MCTS/MCP certifications passed between now and May 31 get a $3000-worth hamper of SWAG to distribute”
