Slide deck and demos from yesterdays presentation

Thanks to everyone who showed up at yesterdays event. This was my first public presentation and based on the feedback I guess I did good. I hope you enjoyed the content, and that you learned something in the process. I’ll be out of the country for the next 2 weeks, but you’re welcome to tweet/email me questions and comments if you have any. I’ll try and get back to you as soon as I can.

You can find the slides from my presentation at the bottom of this post, along with the Visual Studio solutions for the three demos that I did. These are the actual demos that I created during the presentation, complete with grammar mistakes and everything, so you should be looking at the same thing that you saw then. You’ll need a dev machine setup with SharePoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 to be able to try these out.

As a last note, I should give credit where credit is due. The fourth slide in my presentation was borrowed from Eric ShuppsTechEd 2010 presentation. Continue reading

Speaking at the Regina Technology Community, on May 11th

This is an entry level presentation, so I’m expecting most people haven’t worked on SharePoint and will gear the presentation as such. If you have previous SharePoint experience you may find some of the examples and topics to be pretty basic (although you’re still welcome to participate, of course). Continue reading

How to set the content type of a new file in a document library, when uploading said file through code (aka longest and most convoluted blog title to date)

I’m on a project that’s very close to being implemented in production. For the final go-live we will be uploading a bunch of files (about 700) into a document library. There are two content types in our document library, SPI Documents and SPI Drawings. Uploading the files directly into the document library will pick the default content type. How do we change it to use the second content type, instead of the default, for some of the files?

Content Types with associated Fields for SharePoint 2010

Here is a (hopefully) complete list of Content Types and associated Fields for SharePoint 2010. This is the equivalent of my previous post, but for SharePoint 2010 instead. You can find the PowerShell script I used to extract the information in another previous post of mine. Continue reading

Content Types with associated Fields for SharePoint 2007

I’ve previously posted both a list of Content Types as well as a list of Fields that appear in SharePoint 2007 and 2010. But what if you want to find out what Fields a Content Type uses? Here is a (hopefully) complete list of SharePoint 2007 Content Types and associated Fields. Continue reading
