Q and A Session with the Panel
1. Any lessons learnt of the lifecycle of developing with Sharepoint
- Get the taxonomy right, the layout of your site etc... (Twynham School Guys)

What is branding
Branding options in the browser
Next steps What is branding
More than just a header, its about site and content design. Was difficult in V1 and V2, WSS3 and MOSS2007 isnt so bad now. Still a challenge.
Its more than just colouring! Navigation, etc. Know what you
Sites and Templates
Use the top level site as a "front page" for rolling up information held elsewhere dependant on the user. Use the Audience capability in Sharepoint for information targeting (eg News).
Think about how you catagorize things.... for navigation and site layout. Generally, it is not a good idea to have lots of subsites under one site. Branch it out.
Unified Communications for the Learning Gateway
Office Communications Server... links to AD, providing presence information for the user.
Initiate chat/call session with user if available. Can be used for helpdesk....?
Linked with Sharepoint, can use functionality of Live Meeting to share the document or screen. Unified Communications Technology

The next installment of my "Jobs for the Holidays" series... 1. Install WSS3 and MOSS2007 SP2:
This could be fun! Let hope it dont break any of my highly customised environment! 2. Install Server 2008 SP2:
Some fun and games of Server restarting! Its about time we got some updates done... 3. Rebuild 2 ICT Suites (60 PCs):
When we did the Print Server update (see earlier blogs) - the HP drivers screwed up a few machines
OK - so Sharepoint has Forums (well, discussion boards as they call them) built in. However, not really as full featured as I would like - or as you would see elsewhere on the Internet.
So... came across this a while back from Codeplex. Problem... not strictly WSS3/MOSS 2007 compatible. Fair dooooos - thought would leave it alone a bit.
Most other things on our system are sorted now, so I went back to it. This is what it looks like (attached), and also a link to it...

Firstly, thanks to EduTech... we have been working together for a little while on Sharepoint projects. This post is the result of a remote session we did, where I was dealing with some PITA webparts!!!
Read and enjoy... and beware of the gotchas!
Take the scenario - you have a webpart you want to install. You download it, and it is just a .dll and a .webpart. Grrrrr you will think, how the hell do we
