My SharePoint Conference 2011 talks–ribbon development and CI

Unless you’ve been under a rock you’ll know that this year’s big event in the SharePoint world is the official SharePoint Conference 2011, held in Anaheim near Los Angeles. We’re now just over 2 weeks to go, and since many are starting to build their conference schedule I thought I’d mention my talks. I’m presenting 2 sessions and, somewhat weirdly, both of them are co-presents with other speakers. I was looking forward to speaking already, but this aspect makes me even more excited – both my co-speakers rock and I think these are gonna be fun sessions!

Both talks are on the Wednesday – one in the morning, one in the afternoon:

Application Lifecycle Management : Automated builds and testing for SharePoint projects – SPC319, Weds 10:30am
With Mike Morton, Visual Studio Senior Program Manager (Microsoft)

Whether small or large, experienced or novice, any SharePoint development team can improve their process! This demo-heavy session will show you how Visual Studio Ultimate and Team Foundation Server can be used to automatically build your SharePoint solutions, deploy the resulting WSP’s to a remote SharePoint environment, and leverage automated Visual Studio UI testing (which can have a lower barrier to entry than unit testing) to help you find issues faster. Come hear some great, real world information that will help you create higher quality code; as a bonus you will get to admire Chris’ good looks and enjoy Mike’s crazy humour!

Deep Dive on SharePoint Ribbon Development & ExtensibilitySPC402, Weds 5pm
With Andrew Connell (MVP, Critical Path Training) 

Take advantage of the Ribbon in your SharePoint applications for a tightly integrated and great user experience! Developers can customize and extend the ribbon for custom solutions. In this session we'll examine the different components of the ribbon as well as how to create page components, asynchronous callbacks and prompt the user with intuitive dialogs. Best of all you can do all this from the sandbox and avoid getting admins involved in deploying farm solutions!

Hopefully see you there!
