Exploring the Content Query Web Part in depth: Learn how to use the Content Query Web Part successfully.

Date: 26th January 2012 – 12 noon EST

Presenter: Christina Wheeler MCTS

In MOSS 2007, the Content Query Web Part (CQWP) was a very powerful control used for aggregating content from a particular list, site, or site collection. However, even though this web part was pretty awesome it still had some serious drawbacks.

In SharePoint 2010, the CQWP has been greatly improved with a facelift, improved features, and cool new features. New features include the introduction of slots which simplify working with Item Styles and the Content to Content concept which provides functionality such as related content.

Some improvements to the CQWP include dynamic filters and the CommonViewFields. The CQWP in SharePoint 2010 has also improved the query performance over large document libraries and lists.

This session will demonstrate the new features of the CQWP.

Joel Oleson is well known in the SharePoint community as an enthusiastic trainer, evangelist and architect, and he maintains a popular blog www.sharepointjoel.com.

Joel worked at Microsoft and was involved in the first Microsoft global deployment of SharePoint. During his Microsoft tenure, Joel helped various customers achieve the critical governance they needed to upgrade and achieve scale with SharePoint 2007.

Now that SP1 is out what how does this impact your upgrade strategies. What does SP1 offer over RTM? The reality of upgrade is in the strategy of how you execute your binary upgrade, but don’t underestimate the strategy around your visual upgrade. In this session I’ll give you recent examples of an enterprise upgrade of 1TB of data with 50 databases and share our lessons learned from custom workflows, site templates, and dealing with the harsh realities of the Fab 40.


SharePoint 2010 Authentication Overview

Date: 28th July 2011 – 12 noon EST

Presenter: Todd Klindt (SharePoint MVP)

Now that you have your SharePoint farm expertly installed and configured it’s time to loose your users on it. Before you do that, you should have a well thought out authentication strategy designed. SharePoint 2010 has many great authentication options, it’s very flexible. Unfortunately when it comes to software, flexible is often another way of saying “complicated.” In this webcast Todd will cover the basics to authentication and how SharePoint figures into authentication and authorization.

After we get the basics down we’ll cover how you can take advantage of SharePoint 2010’s flexibility by authenticating against user stores that aren’t Active Directory. We’ll walk through settings up Forms Based Authentication (FBA) and talk about how it improves upon the FBA support that SharePoint 2007 had. We will also cover some troubleshooting techniques in case FBA doesn’t want to cooperate with you. After mastering FBA we will take a turn and take a look at Claims authentication. We’ll explain what Claims is and why it’s a good thing for SharePoint 2010.

All PowerPoint and no demos makes for a dull webcast, so there will be a lot of demos. They will help home the information in the slides, and give Todd an opportunity to embarrass himself in front of a large group of people. Should be a lot of fun.
