Tech.Ed 2008…that’s a wrap

Posted by Clayton James on September 7, 2008

It has been a big week!

I taught a two day pre-conference course for Microsoft on building Internet sites using the SharePoint platform. We covered many areas including:

  • Architecture
  • Custom master pages, page layouts, css
  • Web parts
  • Optimisiation. IIS compression, caching, loading core.js
  • Content deployment
  • Extending publishing sites

It was a great couple of days that was also extremely busy with 34 students.

I went to a lot of SharePoint sessions this year and met some leaders in the industry. Todd Bleeker, Ishai Sagi, Ben Curry, Andrew Coates, Joel Olsen .

Todd pioneered SharePoint development by writing the first WSS 3.0 development book (it is my favourite SharePoint development book).

I also went to a Silverlight session. It seemed more a designers sessions than a coders session and I wasn’t really impressed. It demonstrated the expression suite. It is only beta 2 but stills seems lacking in VS integration (I don’t want another product to develop applications) and controls. Lots of hand coding in xaml.

And guess what happened this year…..we didn’t have to wait and get scanned in before sessions. That’s right…we had RFID chips which scanned us into rooms automatically. Great work was completed by the Breeze team in coordinating and brining this to reality.
