Hope to see You at SharePoint Conference 2008

If you are planning to come to the SharePoint Conference 2008 next week being held at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center, stop by to say Hi! You will find me at either:

  1. Presenting my two sessions at the conference as follows:

Title:  Build an automated expense reimbursement process using InfoPath and SharePoint


Abstract:  Have you ever had to fill out a paper form for reimbursement of expenses then mail it in?  Of course, you also need to mail in the receipts as well.  Then begins the wait for the approval process where your manager and then her/his manager and then (what it feels like) the entire accounting team gets to review the expenses on the paper form you have submitted before issuing a check for your reimbursement.  Come to this session to see how you can automate the whole process.  From designing the expense reimbursement form using Microsoft Office InfoPath to publishing it on a Forms Server.  Then implementing an approval process using workflow and enabling a document library to receive the receipts directly through email.  You will see it all done here.  Oh, by the way.. all of this will be accomplished without using any code!


When: Tuesday, March 4th, 2008 10:30 – 11:45am

Where: Room 6E


Title: Manage the Data in your Database using Data View web part… No Code needed!


Abstract: Managing content in the enterprise is one of the most crucial needs of a business. Until now, if you wanted to edit your data in the database through a web front end, it usually meant developing a solution using some sort of programming language. Not any more! Now if you are a power users who has access to Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007, you can tap into your data by implementing the Data View web part. This session will focus on how a knowledge worker can be empowered to create data management solutions using the Data View web part.


When: Thursday, March 6th, 2008 9:00 – 10:15am

Where: Room 6E
