Print | posted on Monday, March 09, 2009 7:46 AM

Next month, April 6th thru 8th, the SharePoint Best Practices Conference comes to Europe. London is the place to be, specifically the QEII Conference Center. You can register for the event here.

I’ve had the privilege to present at the first event in Washington DC, and more recently the second in San Diego,CA. This conference is a great show with superb speakers and the low down dirty what you need to know to be successful with SharePoint. No fluff. No marketing. Find out more about the agenda and speakers at http://www.sharepointbestpractices.co.uk.

This time around we have a great selection of European SharePointers on the roster and will also be a great opportunity to network with others implementing SharePoint to discuss ideas, challenges and best practices.

I’ll be presenting the following sessions:

MythBusters – debunking common SharePoint Farm Misconceptions
This is a repeat of the ever popular mythbusters talk, which again will be updated to include some of the newer urban legends about SharePoint infrastructure. Developers can also gain invaluable information from this session.

Go Live! Launching your MOSS Publishing site
With my buddy Andrew Connell. This session will dive deep into the essential considerations and best practices for launching your MOSS Publishing site – specifically geared towards Internet facing sites.

Kerberos Part 1: no ticket touting here. Does SharePoint add another head?
With my fellow SharePoint Infrastructure junkie, Bob Fox. We got a fantastic response to these session out in San Diego. Part One covers the fundamentals of implementing Kerberos for the core farm services and end user authentication. 

Kerberos Part 2: Advanced Scenarios and additional considerations
With my fellow SharePoint Infrastructure junkie, Bob Fox. Part Two will dive deep into the configuration of “advanced” scenarios such as Excel Services and look in more depth at configuration and troubleshooting tools and techniques.

It promises to be a fun event. There is also a SharePint event. Pop on over to Andrew Connell’s blog for more details on this after hours social for SharePointers.

Look forward to seeing you in April!
