SharePoint Conference 2011, sessie lijst beschikbaar

Van 3 tot 6 oktober a.s. is de Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011, dit keer in Anaheim, California. Hét event voor de SharePoint professional. De lijst met sessies is inmiddels beschikbaar op de SPC11 website en naast de vertrouwde (200+) technische sessies zijn er dit jaar ook ruim 20 non-technical, business focust sessies. Pff…dat wordt dus een hele kluif om de juiste sessies te selecteren…

Ik heb me zojuist geregisterd, en weet al van een aantal Nederlandse partners dat ze ook gaan. Jij komt toch zeker ook?!

Project Professional + Office 365/SharePoint Online

De laatste tijd krijg ik steeds meer vragen over MS Project en SharePoint Online. Hoe wel ik zelf (nog) weinig ervaring met MS Project en SharePOint heb, kwam ik wel deze interessante resource tegen:

ANNOUCING: Project Professional + SharePoint Online in O365

Extend the power of Project to your whole team—from virtually anywhere!

Project managers can now collaborate with teams to share schedule details quickly with SharePoint® Online task list synchronization. Individuals throughout the organization can view the task list, to quickly see task status and update progress in SharePoint Online—from virtually anywhere. Project managers can then easily synchronize and update the project plan from Project Professional 2010. Synchronization is bi-directional, providing greater flexibility for communicating with the team, no matter their location!

Nieuwe limieten SharePoint content databases met SP1

Met het beschikbaar komen van Service Pack 1 voor SharePoint 2010, is een belangrijk storage limiet komen te vervallen. SharePoint content databases, die voorheen een gesupport limiet hadden van maximaal 200Gb, kunnen nu zonder al te grote wijzigingen opgewaardeerd worden tot 4Tb. En zelfs content databases boven de 4Tb zijn nu mogelijk voor specifieke scenario’s.

Op het SharePoint Team Blog staat een uitgebreid artikel met alle details. Op TechNet is het artikel ‘SharePoint Server 2010 capacity management: Software boundaries and limits’ eveneens aangevuld met de nieuwe informatie.

Gratis Office 365/SharePoint Online Developer trainingen op MSDN

Zojuist gelezen op de blog van collega Chris Mayo:

I’m happy to announce an updated Office 365 Developer Training Course to help you get started building solutions for the cloud with Office 365. The course includes 8 sessions, over 12 hours of video and 19 labs as both an offline training kit as well as an online training course on MSDN.

The Office 365 Developer Training Course includes the following training units:

  • Developing in the Cloud with Office 365 (Updated)
    • Office 365 provides a communication and collaboration service in the cloud that you can leverage to build custom solutions for SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online. In this session, you’ll learn about this new cloud service and the breadth of solutions that can be developed using the same skills, tools and SDKs you use today when building on-premises solutions.
  • Developing for SharePoint Online with Sandbox Solutions (Updated)
    • Sandboxed Solutions are the development paradigm for SharePoint Online. In this session, you’ll learn about sandboxed solutions including how to develop, debug and deploy solutions. You’ll also learn the breadth of solutions that can be developed in the sandbox and strategies for developing common scenarios that are not enabled in the sandbox.
  • Building Workflow Solutions for SharePoint Online (Updated)
    • Building Workflow solutions for SharePoint Online allows you to automate collaboration-centric business processes and surface them to your users via SharePoint Online. In this session, you’ll learn the differences between declarative and code-based workflows, design a workflow using Visio 2010, implement that workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010 and customize the workflow using Visual Studio 2010 and custom actions.
  • Developing SharePoint Online Solutions with the Client Object Model (Updated)
    • The SharePoint Client Object Model provides libraries for programmatically accessing SharePoint Online via Silverlight and JavaScript. In this session, we’ll go deep into the Client Object Model and show you how to develop solutions using both Silverlight and JavaScript.
  • SharePoint Online Branding (New)
    • Customizing an intranet site with your company's identity and branding can help create a more effective collaboration experience. In this video, you'll learn how SharePoint Online allows users, designers and developers to customize the look and feel of a site. This can range from simple changes like setting a site logo and Theme to completely changing the user experience with custom styles and Master Pages. In this session, you'll learn how to make these customizations to brand your SharePoint Online site.
  • Leveraging Excel and Access Services in SharePoint Online (Updated)
    • Excel and Access Services provide powerful features for building SharePoint Onine solutions. In this session, you’ll get an inside look at both Excel and Access services and how each can be accessed programmatically when building SharePoint Online solutions.
  • Developing Communication Solutions for Lync Online (Updated)
    • In this session, you learn how to integrate Lync features into your WPF and Silverlight clients much in the same way that Office and SharePoint do, including presence, contact lists and click-to-communicate features. You will also learn how to extend Lync communications to include data and features from your client applications much in the same way that Outlook 2010 does with the "IM" and "Call" features within an email.
  • Developing Messaging Solutions for Exchange Online (Updated)
    • In this session, you'll learn how to integrate Exchange Online mailbox data such as mail, calendar and task items as well as Exchange Online services such as the free-busy service into your applications using an easy to discover and easy to use managed API.

To use this training course as self-paced training, you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Set up a local SharePoint development environment (or download and configure the Information Worker VMs).
  2. Download and install the Office 365 Developer Training Kit onto your development machine.
  3. Sign up for an Office 365 trial to gain access to the service.
  4. Visit the Office 365 Training Course on MSDN to watch the videos and get started with the labs.

Enjoy!

Nu beschikbaar: Office 365 Deployment Guide en Deployment Readiness Tool

Met de lancering van Office 365 zijn er ook nieuwe versies van de Deployment Guide for Enterprise en de Deployment Readiness Tool beschikbaar. Naast een PDF versie van de deployment guide, is er nu ook een web editie beschikbaar. De web editie bevat alle informatie uit de PDF versie, plus de volgende toevoegingen:

  • Uitgebreide zoekmogelijkheden en een index om eenvoudig de juiste informatie te vinden
  • Mogelijkheid om bookmarks te zetten om sneller naar specifieke stukken tekst te navigeren
  • Microsoft Translate technology voor het vertalen naar andere talen dan Engels (mocht je de deployment guide in het Vietnamees willen lezen, dat kan :))

Al met al een waardevolle informatie die zeker het lezen waard is!

About the Deployment Guide

The Microsoft Office 365 Deployment Guide for Enterprises presents important deployment planning concepts and detailed deployment procedures. The deployment guide is organized into the sections that provide specific types of information for specific types of deployment personnel in your organization.

Here is a quick overview of what you will find:

  • Deployment Overview section. This material provides the high-level look at the deployment and organizational requirements to deploy Office 365. It has valuable information for your IT decision-makers, program managers, and technical implementation leads.
  • Plan and Prepare sections. These sections describe the particular tasks and activities required to get ready and fully implement your Office 365 deployment. The tasks are generally presented in the order in which you address them during your deployment. Topics discussed in the Plan section generally reappear in the Prepare section with instructions for carrying out a task. The Plan and Prepare sections contain content that will interest specific types of technology experts in your organization.
  • Migrate section. This section describes the tasks for moving your users’ mailboxes to the Office 365 environment so you can begin using the Office 365 as part of your production environment.

This deployment guide does not address Office 365 for enterprises sales activities that occur before deployment or operations activities that occur after deployment. In addition, the guide does not address solution alignment questions. It is assumed that your organization has already conducted a preliminary evaluation with Microsoft or partners to assess how well Office 365 for enterprises aligns with your current and future business application requirements. Lastly, the guide does not provide guidance on moving an existing BPOS implementation to Office 365 for enterprises. Information about transitioning from BPOS to Office 365 is available at the Microsoft Office 365 transition center.

About the Deployment Readiness Tool

The Office 365 Deployment Readiness Tool beta provides analysis of a customer’s on-premises environment in preparation for an Office 365 enterprise deployment. The readiness tool is integrated with the guidance provided in the web edition of the Microsoft Office 365 Deployment Guide.

Over dit blog…

Hallo SharePoint collega’s bij onze partners,

Via dit blog wil ik jullie gaan informeren over nieuws, ontwikkelingen en interessante evenementen van Microsoft op het gebied van SharePoint (Online). SharePoint Server 2010 en SharePoint Online zijn hot, en er zijn veel interessante ontwikkelingen gaande in SharePoint land. Er gebeurt zo veel, dat het soms lastig is om alle informatie tot je te nemen en op de hoogte te blijven.

Als Partner Technology Advisor voor SharePoint is het mijn verantwoordelijk om onze partners, jullie, zo goed als mogelijk op de hoogte te houden van deze ontwikkelingen en dat wil ik dus gaan doen via dit blog.

Het is mijn ambitie om op regelmatige basis (1 x per week om mee te beginnen) een post te maken met interessante nieuwtjes uit de Microsoft organisatie (die ik mag delen J) rondom SharePoint en aanverwante producten/diensten.

Suggesties, ideeën, vragen? Let me know…

Groeten,

Eric Dubbelaar,
Partner Technology Advisor BPIO
