SharePoint 2010 Evolution Conference

with one comment

I’ve recently been confirmed as a speaker at the SharePoint 2010 Evolution Conference in London. The conference has plenty of talented speakers, lots of great sessions, and promises to be the premier SharePoint event outside the US. From the website:

What is it?

This 3 day SharePoint 2010 Evolution Conference, consists of over 70 Sessions dedicated to IT Pro’s/Developers/Designers/Information Workers/Business Adoption and Power Users and with a new Deep Dive 400 track and 5th Power User Track added this is set to be Europe’s Premier SharePoint Conference for 2010!

Why you should attend

If you attend one SharePoint conference for SharePoint 2010 in Europe here are just a few reasons why you should attend the SharePoint Evolution Conference in London on April 19th to 21st 2010

  • The conference is dedicated to SharePoint
  • Born from the very successful Best Practices conference in 2009 hailed by many as the best SharePoint conference ever.
  • Sessions list second to none, speaker list second to none.
  • 55 Expert SharePoint speakers from Microsoft and well known companies. Never before has such a group of talented speakers like this been brought together.
  • Click here for another 12 more reasons…

The session I’ll be presenting is part of the ‘Community Track’ and will be on ‘Creating a tag driven information architecture using SharePoint 2007’.  This session will cover ways in which to utilise the tagging features of MOSS to create an attractive and easy-to-use intranet portal. We will use the New Zealand Ministry of Transport corporate intranet as an example. This intranet has won several awards including Microsoft’s Partner Solution of the year award, and was named in Neilson Norman Group’s “Top Ten Intranets of 2008”. A key part of this project was defining the information architecture (IA) for the site, and then designing the site structure around the IA to ensure optimal usability. The second key part of the project was to include community features that would engage intranet users and keep them coming back to the site. This session will cover how the IA and community tools were designed and delivered using MOSS 2007.

With a bit of luck we’ll also look at how to apply the same concepts in SharePoint 2010 using the new taxonomy and metadata management features.

Hope to see you there!
