Office DevCon in Sydney November 3-4

Need to sharpen your office dev skills, then you should try to get along to Office DevCon at the Microsoft Offices in North Ryde, Sydney. I will presenting with my partner in crime collegue Adam Clark. We will be presenting 2 sessions:-

  • Integration of Desktop and Live.com search results in MOSS – This topic will cover off a complete integration of the search mechanism from the vista desktop, MOSS enterprise search through to the Live Search. We will do this using some live examples and develop them through the presentation.
     We will cover why you would do this and how you’d do this.
    The goal of the presentation is to demonstrate a unified search outcome regardless of the client app used.
  • Custom Site Definitions and Building Features – This topic will cover what site definitions & features are, how they will make your life easier and we will develop one in the presentation. We will then have several different site definitions and show how easy it is to change a site look and feel with them.
    On the features part of the presentation we will develop a feature and demonstrate it, we will also make enhancements to it and demonstrate the versioning features of features and how to upgrade.

A big thanks to Graham Seach for organising a great event. If you are going to come along please tap me on the shoulder, it would be great to catch up with you.

Finally Got Around to It

Well after years of nagging by various people I’ve finally gotten around to blogging. You should hopefully start seeing some interesting stuff here based in the fringes of .Net I work in namely using MOSS and Biztalk. Stay tuned….
