We are pleased to be back again at the Scottish Parliament for another evening of SharePoint at 6.30pm, November 27th. Many thanks to Stephen Hynds for facilitating the event.

If you want to come along, please go here and register your name, otherwise the security peeps won’t let you in the building, this is after all the seat of the Scottish Government. There will doubtless be a few sherberts following the event.

Spencer Harbar SharePoint MVP - MythBusters – debunking common SharePoint Farm Misconceptions
This interactive, whiteboard session will dive into common SharePoint Farm Myths and discuss common misconceptions around Global Deployments, Farm Topologies, Shared Service Providers, High Availability, Security and more. Alongside best practices for each “myth”, the SharePoint “magic numbers” will be covered and there will be plenty of scope to discuss any particular queries you may have on farm deployment. This session does unfortunately have a little powerpoint.

Andrew Woodward SharePoint MVP - Test Driven Development – Contrary to popular belief it can be done on SharePoint projects
In the style of Don Box this PowerPoint free session will take you through the development of a SharePoint solution using TDD. We will introduce TDD , the tools of the trade, how TDD influences you design and mocking out the core SharePoint object model elements using the new Typemock Isolator APIs.

The Scottish Parliament building is located in the Holyrood area of central Edinburgh at the foot of the Royal Mile near to the Palace of Holyroodhouse - http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/vli/visitingHolyrood/howToFindUs.htm
