We will be jet setting to the West Coast quite a bit in February! After our next UI/UX Experience course happening in Seattle, February 6-10th, we are headed to the SPTechCon conference in San Fransisco. We can honestly say that this is one of our favorite conferences to attend. Everything is still very personal and you don’t feel like one person in a vast sea of many.
Here is a summary of the sessions that we will be presenting:
- Gaining Total Control of your Sites with Data View Web Parts – You know you want it — total and complete control over the HTML that SharePoint renders for your content. Semantic code. Maybe, if you’re feeling adventurous, some HTML 5. Well, the Data View Web Part is the tool for you. Dustin will show you how to impose your will on Web Part markup, and will give you the tools you need to create highly customized sites without worrying about upgrade woes or installing any code to your server.
- Back At It Again… More CSS Goodness – Heather thrives on figuring out cool stuff to do in SharePoint with CSS only. Today’s topic? Identifiers. If you can identify it, you can modify it. Don’t pull up short at IDs and classes. Dive into the many ways you can target a SharePoint element and modify the look and feel with CSS. Descendent selectors, pseudo selectors and attribute selectors are indispensable tools with SharePoint CSS. Learn how to target specific navigation, Web Parts and more.
- Get Ready for HTML5 and SharePoint – HTML5 is the new Web hotness. If it seems daunting – or you think you have to scrap what you have now and start over – then check out this session! Let Heather and Dustin teach you how to put HTML5 to work today, and see different ways it can enhance your SharePoint sites. And no worries, you won’t be excluding anyone from accessing your site! Topics include HTML5 features, how to upgrade and using it as a tool to improve your existing site. All demos and code are in SharePoint.
Use promo code “Solomon” or “Miller” and get an extra $200 off their already-reduced early registration price. That’s a total of $650 off if you register for SPTechCon by December 16. And if you register after December 16th, you can still use the “Solomon” or “Miller” promo code and get $200 off the regular registration cost.
Can’t decide which promo code to use? Let the winds of fate decide for you. (link has sound effects and heck, is just a happy looking web site.)
We look forward to seeing you there!
– Heather Solomon and Dustin Miller
