SUBJECT: Word Automation Services in SharePoint 2010

SPEAKER: Kenneth Cooper, Enterprise SharePoint Architect

Microsoft has finally done it! They have baked office automation services into a web server application. Word Automation Services is a functionality in SharePoint 2010 that allows developers to transform Word documents into other document types. So what does this do for me? Well, have you ever wanted to turn a bunch of Word documents into PDFs and save them in bulk on your SharePoint server so that users can't edit them? Now you can! What about mail merging a template and data into a set of PDF files (one per mail merge)? Now you can! If you want to bone up a bit on this exciting new technology before the meeting check out this link: "Word Automation Services: What it Does (".

Kenneth Cooper has 16 years of experience in software development and is currently an Enterprise SharePoint Architect at a large Real Estate firm here in NYC rolling SharePoint out globally to the organization. For the last five he has been working with SharePoint 2003, 2007, and now 2010, in various roles, incluing developer, administrator, solution architect and SharePoint enterprise architect. He has implemented various solutions using SharePoint ranging from working with the OM to integrating third party systems. He has also worked with other document management and portal applications.
