D/FW SharePoint Community July Meeting

Posted on

Join me at the July meeting of the D/FW SharePoint Community. I will be doing a presentation on Configuring MOSS for Optimal Performance (hey, me, doing an Admin talk? What’s the world coming to?) and Idera will be discussing various management and monitoring tools for SharePoint. During the Developer breakout sessions Rajesh Satluri will show an extension of the SharePoint people picker which utilizes custom data sources and I will demonstrate how to use event receivers to track project tasks and milestones. Stick around for general dev Q&A afterwards.
