Watch the DNR Show

Couple of nights back, Carl Franklin (who is probably partying in Barcelona right now), called me and said "Hey can you do a DNR TV?". My Q was .. "Tonight?", and his answer was, "Now".

LOL !!

So, we did a completely impromptu Part #1, of an Intro to Sharepoint 2007. And when I say, completely impromptu - I mean, no slides, no timeline, no script - dive in and swim sorts of a show. But that is what makes it so much better - there are ZERO Powerpoint slides in it. ZERO!!

In this show, I talked a bit about the setup of Sharepoint 2007, and shared a number of things I have learnt lately.

I have also been occupied a lot lately in reviewing two rather outstanding books on Sharepoint, one by Scot Hillier and the second by Ed Hild and Susie Adams. One is more on the lines of "Learning Sharepoint" and the other is more on the lines of "Applying Office technologies". I hope to continue sharing all that I am learning in various articles, possibly a second DNR show, and of course this blog.

Sound off but keep it civil:

I enjoyed the DNRTV show, but it was unfortunate you ran out of time--you didn't even make it to creating a list and views!

What I'd love to see for the next show:


a) some of your favorite "frequently-used features" that I may not know about. Each feature I learn about is another one I don't have to implement.


b) web part programming in 2007

Anyway, that's just my wishlist.

Thanks Peter. Yes it is hard to fit in a gargantuan product in such a short timeframe.

Carl and I had planned to record part #2 this weekend, but my throat was down, so we will probably record #2 this coming weekend or so.

For the next show, I will be covering basics of content types, and then I'll take a dive into forms server and excel services. If time permits, we will cover webpart writing also, but my current month's code-magazine article, and the next (comes out in 10 more days) code-magazine articles cover writing webparts very very well anyway.

We only have 1 hour :), but is there any other thing you'd like to see covered?
