was in the first slot (8:30AM) and I presented my "Leveraging SharePoint 2010 as a Social Computing Development Platform". Now even under normal circumstances that's a pretty heavy way to start off a morning (it's a 300 level developer presentation). However, after I polled the audience at the start, I found I had a full room with only a handful of developers. So I kind of changed my presentation on the fly and did quite a bit more demo'ing of the social computing features (from an end-user perspective) and completely cut out my 3rd demo (creating an activity feed custom gatherer for twitter). All in all I think it went quite well!
For those that were at the session (or my other ones in the past) know that I had an aversion to slide based presentations. However, posted below is both the mindmap version of the presentation (just click on the thumbnail to get a very large pannable image) as well as a slide deck version (just pretend the SPSIndy logo is SPSCLT).
And finally, as promised, the icon to the right will get you a zip of all the code samples I used in the presentation. If you are going to try and actually make this code work your self, you should probably go read this post
, as it has more information about each VS project and what you may need to do to get it all working (read the comments too).
I want to thank the SPSCLT organizers, especially Brian Gough and Dan Lewis, the speakers, sponsors, and attendees for a great event! I'm very happy I made the trip down and hope to see some of you at other events very soon!
