Best Practices Conference 2009


​​Envision IT recently delivered two feature presentations at the Best Practices Conference in Washington, D.C. from August 24-26, 2009.

The recently concluded highly successful Best Practices Conference  was all about doing things the right way: the most efficient, effective ways to achieve goals, distilled into adaptable, repeatable procedures that participants could use. The conference featured top experts and industry leaders in SharePoint and SQL Server.  Conference sessions were divided into seven tracks geared towards every level of Technology Professional.  This Conference gathered the leading authorities to define, describe and set methods that will become industry standard - insights that participants could gain immediately to avoid pitfalls, cut costs and gain a competitive edge.

Envision IT presented two sessions in the SharePoint Developer Track:

SPDEV335 - Mastering the ShareP​​oint Site Definition Provisioning Framework and Other Techniques for Deploying Large Hierarchies of SharePoint Websites

Are there times when you'd like SharePoint to create an entire hierarchy of web sites instead of a single web site? Would you like to make this an easily repeatable process? The SharePoint Site Definition Provisioning Framework is an in-the-box SharePoint capability that makes it easy to implement this without writing custom code. Other approaches and their trade-offs are also discussed. A case study is included.

SPDEV263 - Platform Extensi​on Model for SharePoint Products and Technologies

The goal of the Platform Extension Model for SharePoint Products and Technologies is to help application architects and project planners understand how best to map their solution requirements with the in-the-box features of the SharePoint platform to minimize the amount of custom coding and maximize the amount of solution development through configuration (solution composability​​).
