vSharePoint January Edition

Hey folks,

I've been very bad at getting the details out for this month's vSharePoint and I apologize.  I think the Christmas hangover and being generally too busy and distracted is to blame. 

Ok, this week we have Chris Stone and myself delivering the goods.

• Chris will be delivering "Interesting Use Case - Content Types for Phases/Statuses".  Content types are often confusing but they can also be used in interesting ways to allow us to handle different information at different times. Using an example we will walk through when this option might be useful and how to build them. Credit to Laura Rogers for the original idea.

• I will be bringing a past favourite that we didn't get to finish, the "book of 5's ... top 5 favourite lists for tools, techniques, etc. that we love in and around SharePoint"

We conducted a poll last month as well to get some new viewpoints and feedback. One thing we heard from a few folks was that the meetings ran a bit long.  So we are going to shorten the presentations a little to 40 minutes, from an hour. So we should be able to get out of there by 1:30 or so.

See you Thursday!
Sean

      Thanks Sean, I'm still coordinating a move from Gatineau QC to here, so I haven't had time to think of any suggestions, sorry. The last SPUG I attended in Ottawa was on how incredibly easy it is to develop in SP2013 with html5 css3 and js & it was very exciting! Once I see a few presentations I could probably try to come up with one of my own.

    I am new to SharePoint, can do basics but need to learn how to use it better and for more than just uploading documents, would your meetings be too advanced for me?

      Hi Connie. Our meetings vary quite a bit. Sometimes it is folks telling stories/experiences from their own environments which are great for all levels, some are deep dives into particular product functionality. We always have two different presentations and I try to make sure it isn't all technical/development stuff. What would you like to learn about specifically?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
