Speaking on SP 2010 at UK user group – ECM Enhancements

I’m excited to be giving the London/SE England SharePoint user group’s first SharePoint 2010 presentation in a couple of weeks, woohoo! It’s great to be able to talk/demo publicly on SP 2010 at last. The topic is a fairly general one - ‘Enterprise Content Management Enhancements in SharePoint 2010’, so I’m hoping there’s something in there for devs, admins, PMs, end-users alike. Here’s the abstract:

Session 2 - ECM Enhancements in SharePoint 2010 - Chris O'Brien

Enterprise Content Management is SharePoint’s bedrock. The 2010 release adds significant new capabilities in all ECM pillars (Document Management, Web Content Management and Records Management), and Microsoft have addressed some of the top ECM pain points reported by clients in SharePoint 2007. This session looks at the improvements in user experience, scalability and taxonomy, with demos showing how to leverage new features such as Enterprise Content Types, the Managed Metadata field and Content Organizer to better manage your documents and/or pages. Specific enhancements in WCM and RM will also be discussed. This session is a great way to kick-start your awareness of SharePoint 2010, and questions on other aspects of the new version are welcome in the Q & A wrap-up at the end (or the pub!)

If there’s time I’ll also show a simple example of extending the new metadata capability with code – it’s a good excuse to show the new SharePoint/Visual Studio 2010 integration and deployment process if nothing else!

Also, if this session isn’t enough there’s another thought-provoking session if you’re interested in accessibility:
