BIWUG on SharePoint Governance and the past, the present and the future

 BIWUG is announcing another session about SharePoint on Thursday October 27th 2011 in the Microsoft Belgium offices.

Agenda

18:00-19:00 Welcome with snacks

19:00-19:15 Introduction

19:15-20:15 SharePoint Governance (Speaker Patrick Sledz): Stop thinking about features features features when talking about governance.

When designing governance for a SharePoint implementation, a lot (not to say all) energy and words go out to technical stuff, SLA’s and not to the things that define the business value. And the business value is not only a perfect technically tuned and performant SharePoint farm (if that even exists).

20:15-20:30 Break

20:30-21:00 The past, present and the future of BIWUG

During a seemingly quiet period, a lot has been going on behind the scenes. The result of all this secrecy will be revealed in the second part of the evening.

21:00-21:30 SharePint!

Of course there is also an opportunity to network, socialize and discuss the matter explained the previous hours… therefore SharePint!

Location: Microsoft Belgium Corporate Village – Bayreuth Building, Leonardo Da Vincilaan 3, 1935 Zaventem

Windows PowerShell Command Builder – Silverlight Tool for SharePoint Administrators

This SilverLight tool guides you in an interactive WYSIWYG way while you are creating your SharePoint PowerShell commands.

This little gem could be useful for everyone, but it is a powerful learning tool for those who are new, interested and motivated to learn the power of PowerShell in combination with SharePoint.

You can use the silverlight application from HERE

From microsoft.com:
The Windows PowerShell Command Builder enables IT professionals and power users to visually assemble commands related to SharePoint 2010 Products and Office 365 on a Design Surface in a browser and take those commands to their respective products. The Windows PowerShell Command Builder provides an intelligent user experience. After you drag a verb or noun object on the Design Surface, the interface will hide either the verbs or nouns that are not associated with the verb or noun placed on the Design Surface. After you construct a command, you can copy the command to Windows PowerShell script, the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell, or other desired location to be saved or executed.

TIP: You can install it on your desktop (right-mous-click on the application).

SharePoint IE Browser Compatibility Check – IETester

A colleague of mine pointed me towards this little tool that allows you to test the outcome of your (sharepoint) webpage while using a different Internet Explorer version.
The tool can be downloaded from here.

This tool isn’t new in the community and probably most of you already know it.
Kris Van Der Mast already blogged about it in 2009 (link)

Hope it helps,
Tom
