I’m honoured to be one of the speakers at the upcoming SharePoint Connections 2010 event in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on the 18th and 19th January. It promises to be a great show with lots of great 2010 content and speakers. The general goal of the event is to deliver highlights from the SharePoint Conference earlier this year in Las Vegas to the European audience as well as offering significant networking opportunities. Its all going down at the RAI conference centre just outside Amsterdam city. The RAI isn’t a casino, but it is an excellent conference facility!

I will presenting the following sessions:

  • MSC27: Claims Based Identity in SharePoint 2010
    You will learn about the major investments in Claims based Identity in SharePoint 2010. You will understand how to use SharePoint in an heterogeneous identity environment for both sign-in and services (SOA). We will discuss the new identity architecture, learn about all the components and how to manage and operate them. In addition, we will go over the design decisions you will need to make as you plan the interop between SharePoint and external systems/web services.
  • MSC34: Implementing Multi-Lingual Solutions on SharePoint 2010
    This session will discuss key success strategies for building multilingual Internet, extranet or intranet sites leveraging Variations and the new Multi-lingual User Interface. Key topics covered include: 1. Core technical concepts 2. Planning considerations 3. Information architecture and site structure 4. Hierarchy creation 5. Variations logic 6. Navigation and Web Parts 7. Multi-lingual User Interface benefits.
  • MSC12: Scaling SharePoint 2010 Topologies for Your Organization
    Now that you learned about the new SharePoint Service architecture, come learn about how you architect Services for your organization. We will talk about various Canonical SharePoint deployment types (Internet Presence, Partner Collaboration via Extranets, distributed/consolidated data centers, medium sized organization etc.) and describe how you architect the Services logical topology. In addition to the logical topology, we will drill into how you scale-up/scale-out the physical topology to meet the scale expectations for your organization. Regardless of the nature and scale of your organization, SharePoint 2010 now offers a topology for you!

Along with my partner in crime, “The Doc”, Neil Hodgkinson, I will also be delivering an all day post conference workshop for IT Pros on the 20th January.

  • MPS01: SharePoint Server 2010 Administration Workshop
    Prepare yourself for the new world of SharePoint Server 2010 Administration! Come and spend a full day with SharePoint Certified Masters Spencer Harbar and Neil Hodgkinson as they cover the administration and operations fundamentals of SharePoint Server 2010. They’ll cover the gotchas of the install as well as potential pain points you might encounter when upgrading in your organization. After this workshop, you’ll have the key information you will need to install, upgrade, operate and manage SharePoint Server 2010 beta up and running in your organization.

There will also be a SharePint on the Monday evening to mingle with the SharePoint community, and also partake in some real beer. Yes, that’s right – real beer (made in Europe!) at a SharePoint event. Whatever next?! Check out the event site for more information and registration details.
