Free SharePoint training contest

Earlier this year at SharePoint911 we started doing our own training. One of our offerings is 75 minute – 3 hour online webinars for $99. I recently did one on Patching and it was a good time. However, there weren’t as many people there as I would have liked. This made me think maybe I wasn’t covering topics that people really wanted to hear about. So I thought I’d let you guys decide what my next webinar will be on. And if I pick your topic, you get to attend for free.

I’ll be taking submissions from now until Monday March 28th. Submissions must be emailed to and the subject line must be “Webinar.” I’ve got an email filter set up and if your submission doesn’t match those two rules, it will likely be routed into my Junk mail and lost forever. Feel free to email as many topics as you would like. Each submission must be on a SharePoint 2010 administrative topic and something I can reasonably cover in a session that’s between 75 minutes and three hours. After I get all of the submissions I’ll pick my favorite and announce the winner. So if you’re shy, and don’t want me to announce your name, you’d better not submit anything. Smile If more than one person submits the idea I choose I’ll find some fair way to decide who gets the free seat.

So put those thinking caps on and let me know what you want to hear about.




Configuring the UPS service this has to be the most confusing service application in SharePoint Land. And one of the most asked about.

Re: Free SharePoint training contest

Well Dave mentioned the one I was going to propose - UPA provisioning, especially getting sync up and running and configuring FIM for import of custom AD attributes.

Nothing else comes close to UPA in terms of my hours spent working on it and frustration level - in fact the whole federation concept seems very 1.0 (or even beta) at this point from MS.

How about converting a large document library of existing content to use enterprise keywords and the managed metadata service.
