I have my first MCTS!

12 01 2010

Just a quick post to say that I passed my first SharePoint exam last week (70-631 TS: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Configuring). For those of you that haven’t taken it yet, its a very simple exam for those with a few years of Decent SharePoint/WSS experience.

I am planning on taking my next exam (70-541 TS: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 – Application Development C#) at the end of January so fingers crossed! For this exam I am brushing up my skills by reading the ‘Inside Windows SharePoint Services 3.0’ book by Ted Pattison.

What I am working on – Coming Soon

21 04 2009

Dear Readers,

I thought I would write a quick post as I haven’t blog posted for a while. I am currently working on some code to create list views dynamically in code using the SharePoint object model and will post an example up when I’m done.

Additionally I am currently customising the Cascading Navigation Web Part (http://www.codeplex.com/sharepointnavigation) that was created by Yvonne Harryman to add more rich functionality.

The Cascading Nav Web Part allows you to configure and display a drop down top menu on WSS sites (a feature that present in full blown MOSS). I will contact Yvonne to provide a new release with the additional content.

On a separate note, did everyone have a good time at the SharePoint Best Practices Conference in London, UK? I sadly could not attend but from what I hear there were some very informative sessions/presentations.

More to follow soon…

🙂
