This year I will be attending the tech days again. It is happening on 10 (pre-conference) , 11 and 12 march. To view the schedule, click here. You can view the schedule per interest, Architet, Developer or IT professionals.
It has been 2 years since I was there. The program looks very interesting. I will also be attending a pre conference:
Pre-Conference: Deep-dive into development for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007
SharePoint 2007 is built on ASP.NET 2.0. When it was released the current development tool was Visual Studio 2005. Since then many technologies and tools have been released that integrate with MOSS 2007, we can think about Visual Studio 2008, .NET 3.5, IIS7, etc. This pre-conference will give you the ground-layer and go further than the basic introduction training on MOSS, taking into account the use of latest technologies into SharePoint development. The day will be split into 5 separate sessions that will address the following topics:
- SharePoint Architecture (Site Collections, Lists, Features, IIS Web Applications) using the tools under Visual Studio 2008
- Managing data (Site Columns, Content types, Lists, etc)
- Internet facing Publishing sites and more.
Pre-requisites: Basic knowledge of MOSS2007 development
At the tech days after the pre-conference I will be attending mostly the developer sessions, also some of the architect sessions, but it will depend on the schedule of the different sessions.
