we're back in London to kick off the new year with a SUGUK meeting. We'll be at the MS offices in Victoria
again looking at Workflow and Search Server 2008. Here's the timetable:
1800 - 1830 Arrive
1830 - 1930 Workflow: A deep dive into developing workflows for
SharePoint using Visual Studio and Infopath - Chris O'Brien
Of the three types of workflow available to the SharePoint
developer, only Visual Studio workflows provide complete flexibility and power.
Without the right information however, the learning curve can be steep for the uninitiated.
In this session we’ll start with initial decisions such as SharePoint
Designer workflows vs. Visual Studio workflows, sequential vs. state-machine,
and InfoPath vs ASP.Net for forms. From there we’ll cover the key steps
to get a workflow up and running including retrieving data from an InfoPath
form, configuring workflow activities, and deployment of the workflow. Over
several demos, we’ll build a basic state-machine workflow, and show why
workflow is a valuable addition to any SharePoint developer’s skillset.
1930 - 2000 Snacks and drinks
2000 - 2100 Search Server 2008 – What is it, how does it affect me and should I be testing it? - Andrew Woodward
A look at the recently announced Search Server 2008. We will walk through an installation and demonstration of the new Federated Search capabilities, what’s provided out of the box, what you can get from free, how to leverage sites using Live.com and how to federate results from Google. We will discuss how this fits in with your existing WSS and MOSS deployments and the release timescales.
