I had a good time at School of Dev this weekend. It had a fairly decent crowd consider this was its first time and it was on Mother's Day weekend. There was some good info there and I think just about everyone got a prize or two. I had the opportunity to give my updated talk on Searching Business Data with MOSS 2007 Enterprise Search. In the talk, I walked through how to search line of business data exposed through a web service. My slides are attached to this post.
I also had the opportunity to catch a couple of other SharePoint sessions. I made it to Dennis Bottjer's session on Developing a Public Facing Internet Portal with MOSS 2007. I also caught Becky "MOSS Lover" Isserman's session on using AJAX in SharePoint. All in all I had a good time and I enjoyed the opportunity to be able to talk with other SharePoint developers.
I am looking forward to TechFest 2008. I am currently working on a new talk on using Code Access Security with SharePoint which hopefully I will be giving at a user group meeting fairly soon.
