Australian SharePoint Conference Review

I was fortunate to attend the Australian SharePoint Conference this week (June 16 & 17). This was a surprisingly good conference –  comfortable venue, well organized, top notch speakers, great networking and most importantly a very useful look in detail into SharePoint 2010.  Complaints & Reality There’s always a few things to complain about at a conference eg the air...

Australian SharePoint Conference

As far as well-priced technical conferences go, I think the Australian SharePoint Conference is pretty impressive. It’s $650 + GST for two days, with three tracks, held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.

CLARITY: SharePoint – WSS versus MOSS

There's still plenty of confusion out there about SharePoint, particularly around what is included in WSS versus MOSS. Part of the problem is that there is soooo much information about SharePoint that the simple details get lost… So, let's go through the various options, comparing WSS with MOSS Standard and MOSS Enterprise as simply as possible. I'll exclude technicalities (eg...

SharePoint: Comparison of WSS with MOSS

This is an excellent comparison of WSS with SPS2003, MOSS standard and MOSS Enterprise. It is a simple Excel file with worksheets for each of the main components.
