Pushing SharePoint functionality to the Extreme – SharePoint user group

Tonight’s User group pow wow will be workshop interactive style on SharePoint 2010 power user techniques.

This workshop will focus on creative yet often overlooked ways to bring requested SharePoint user experience, without cranking out Visual Studio.

How often do you hear from a SharePoint consultant…”This requires custom code”……..    Often this is not the case and the science project approach to SharePoint deployments is not required.

Peter lifts the curtain on how to be creative with your SharePoint approach with techniques that don’t just push the envelope, but shred it.


What this workshop is not:

– PowerPoint

– A talking head saying how great SharePoint is

– Lots of over used words like , “awesome, social, synergy, big data, and cupcakes ”
