Delivering an Integrated Intranet and Internet Service using SharePoint

Prospective students to see multimedia examples and student testimonials of the experience of students who have studied with Bendigo TAFE.
An online course application form which is processed internally by Bendigo TAFE staff using a specific Student Journey Management System using SharePoint 2010 on their intranet.
Building Mobile SharePoint applications

Presenting at SharePoint Saturday Melbourne

Most of the Melbourne crowd would have noticed, but if you haven't. Mossig has been dismantled and split up in two new user groups.
One for a technical audience, MSPUG and the second for a Business Oriented approach is called MBUG. Please have a look and sign up at both groups so we can keep in touch with you.
This month, the regular Wednesday night meeting for MSPUG is being skipped (would normally have been on 26th Oct). Sorry ‘bout that – you can have the night off !Instead, we’re having a FULL DAY of top-quality presentations, both for a technical as well as a business oriented audience. I'll be doing an introduction to Visio 2010 and Visio Services.
This coming Saturday (Oct 22nd) is “SharePoint Saturday Melbourne”.SharePoint Saturday has become an institution around the globe, with the community very strong and active – and always a meeting happened somewhere.In fact – there are meetings this Saturday in far-off places, not just Melbourne – Manila, Belarus (near Russia), and Minnesota.Instead of the normal 1-2 sessions at MSPUG – SharePoint Saturday Melbourne has 15 sessions – and the best bit, is that it’s FREE to attend (including lunch !)
There are 15 sessions – across BUSINESS, DEVELOPMENT and IT PRO tracks – as well as an ASK-THE-EXPERTS panel – and then a prize draw (and THEN SharePint !)Here’s the schedule (PDF) – make sure to have a look and ‘plan your day’.
Many thanks to Brian Farnhill (Canberra) – and our own Elaine van Bergen for organising the speakers, venue, sponsors, catering – and all the other bits that will make it a great day.It’s looking like it will be a great day – so make sure you RSVP – don’t miss out.
There are only a few tickets remaining – so click here to register.
See you there Ed
