Here is a list of some interesting SharePoint sessions running through out the Tech Ed New Zealand 2007:

Chandima Kulathilake (Provoke, picture on the left)
Do you want to learn about upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services version 2 to version 3, and SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to Office SharePoint Server 2007? In this session you will learn the different upgrade options, as well as how to prepare your SharePoint deployment today for upgrade.
13 August Monday 2.15PM to 3.30PM

OFC418 - Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies 2007: Deployment and Advanced Administration Topics (Level 400)
Chandima Kulathilake (Provoke) and Brendon Ford (Provoke)
Learn about advanced options for the SharePoint administrator, including site, site collection, and content database management, creating portable sites for staging environments, and creating automated processes. This session will also cover advanced configurations and deployment architectures including Extranet Deployments and Inter-Farm Shared Services.
14th August Tuesday 3.45PM to 5.00PM

OFC316 - Branding and Customizing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Sites (Level 300)
Chandima Kulathilake (Provoke) and Mark Orange (Intergen, pictured on the left)
With the release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, building and deploying a robust content-centric site has become quick and efficient. And, with each site deployment comes the need to alter the site look and feel. In this session we review components of the user interface and their interworking relationships that ultimately create the rendered page. For the majority of the session, you will learn how to brand a site and customise the user interface through use of master pages, CSS, and page layouts. In addition, we touch on interface customisation of site navigation and branding site administrator screens. By the end of this session, you will see a site that is completely branded and easily stands apart from the out-of-the-box look and feel of SharePoint.
15th August Wednesday 3.45PM to 5.00PM


Mark and Chandima are both Microsoft MVPs and the coordinators for the Wellington SharePoint User Group.

Also, in addition to the shared session OFC418, Mark Orange will be running a session on Document and Records Management in SharePoint, which is a big topic due to the momentum around the Public Records Act (PRA). Mark will be keen to see what the developer community knows or cares about this because it’s a big thing out there for many of their business customers, whether an in-house IT shop or a vendor.
