We thought maybe it would be a good time to try to have a social gathering and see how all the Orlando SharePoint people are doing, gauge interest level in how often we should meet for official meetings, and talk about potential future topics. Who is up for some Zingers® and SharePoint talk?

Details: Waterford Lakes Ale House on Thursday May 31st around 6pm.

SharePoint MVP Dux Raymond Sy will be presenting:

How to Effectively Plan, Execute and Control SharePoint Projects 

Microsoft SharePoint has shifted the paradigm in enterprise information management and team collaboration. By empowering knowledge workers, SharePoint can increase worker productivity, improve business process efficiency and streamline business processes.

 In a recent AIIM study, http://bit.ly/cPTOJg, lack of planning is a key contributor to SharePoint deployment failure. To deliver successful SharePoint projects, effectively managing SharePoint 2007 and 2010 projects is paramount. Executive support, proper planning, and appropriately managing expectations are crucial to ensure SharePoint success.

In this interactive session, you will learn how to:

    • Initiate executive excitement, promote organizational buy-in and foster user adoption
    • Develop an effective and practical project management process in deploying SharePoint
    • Apply relevant strategies in mapping business processes to identify SharePoint-based solutions
    • Identify necessary resources to plan, deploy, maintain and support your SharePoint implementation
    • Minimize uncertainty and risk by applying practical scope management techniques

The primary audience for this class are executives, managers, analysts, consultants who wish to properly implement SharePoint and immediately reap its’ organizational benefits.

Participants will get presentation notes, checklists, and templates.

As usual we will have more giveaways (including a NFR copy of Office Pro), but you have to show up to win!

SharePoint MVP John Ross presented:

Getting the most out of search

SharePoint Search is often one of the easiest areas to see immediate ROI from SharePoint. Although it works well out of the box, the key to unlocking the potential of SharePoint search starts with understanding how it works. In this session, we’ll discuss the different factors that determine relevancy in SharePoint and how to use them to make sure users are finding the content they are looking for. This session is designed for all users who want to get a better understanding about SharePoint Search and to learn techniques that don’t require any code to create a better search strategy for their organization.  There should be something for everyone in this session, no matter what skill level or version of SharePoint you have!

As usual (assuming we remember to bring the prize box) we will have more giveaways, but you have to show up to win!

See you at the meeting!

Randy Drisgill presented Introduction to Branding in SharePoint 2010. This session will focus on getting started with SharePoint branding for 2010 including working with themes, basic CSS editing, and a basic master page introduction

SharePoint Super Star Laura Rogers presented:

Form Approval Process – Best Practices

In your company, forms are everywhere, and they usually have some type of workflow associated with them.  Approval workflows are a very common request in SharePoint, and there are several different ways to go about creating this process.  SharePoint Designer and InfoPath are common tools that are used to not only create the business form, but to run it through an approval.  Depending on the business requirements, there are different best practices involved.  In this session, attendees will learn how SharePoint 2010 and InfoPath 2010 can be leveraged the most efficiently to create an approval process that is best for the specific project.   Improvements from 2007 to 2010 will also be discussed.

Instead of having our traditional meeting, in August we are going to have our first ever social event. Come on out and have some beverages and talk SharePoint (or not). Tuesday, August 3rd at 7pm at the Ale House in Waterford Lakes (in East Orlando):

641 N Alafaya Trl, Orlando, FL 32828

We will have a special guest in attendance as well. Laura Rogers, world famous on twitter as @WonderLaura fame as well as for all her End User SharePoint posts about the Data View Web Part. If you ever had a DVWP question, this will be your chance! We’ll also be discussing future meeting topics as well as our potential new meeting location. Also, assuming we don’t forget like last time, we’ll bring along some Microsoft swag to give away for those who come out.
