Presenting at SUGUK London – October 14th

Yep, the next SharePoint User Group UK (SUGUK) London session has been announced, and I’m going to be presenting on Sandbox Development. (yay!)

The event is on October 14th 2010 at at Mostyn Hotel (Marble Arch, Bryanston Street, London, W1H 7BY) and the evening starts at 18:00.

I have the second slot and will be talking about Sandbox Development, a subject which I’ve been keenly interested in what with Content and Code’s products and the expectation of SharePoint 2010 suposedly coming to BPOS (Microsoft’s cloud services).

“This development focused session will walk through the new SharePoint 2010 Sandbox Solutions framework, including the architecture, configuration and development of Sandboxed solutions. Although covering off a few administrative functions do not be fooled .. we will be opening Visual Studio 2010, stepping through code and debugging processes!”

The session kicks off with Jaap Vossers talking about SharePoint and JQuery. I’ve been working with Jaap for several months now and some of the JQuery stuff he’s done is fantastic, so this is well worth coming along for that session alone!

This session will cover everything you need to know about harnessing the power of jQuery in your SharePoint sites. The introduction will look at getting started, the syntax and the plugins before we look at jQuery in a SharePoint context; the benefits, examples, calling web services, loading scripts and deployment. We will then cover the various frameworks and utilities (SPServices, jQueryLoader) before rounding off with a look at further integration opportunities in SP2010 and specifically the Client OM and REST. This is a technical session.”
