    Would you like to help and show us your tech?

    Whilst at Bett, I was getting over-enthusiastic whilst showing off the many wonderful Citrix products that I use. Bossman, at this point suggested that I should put my enthusiasm to good use and show others how I've used these products to make my life, and the lives of my users, 'better'. So I began thinking.... perhaps a video for all to see would be good?

    This, and Microsoft's little push for videos, got me thinking that there might be other members that could also share their enthusiasm.

    If you have a technology that you would like to show off in a short video, contact me by some means as I'm going to suss out some kind of template to use

    Post MS Videos

    Hi,

    I'd be interested in getting involved to showcase some of the great MS technology that is currently available and also coming soon.

    Let me know if you need anything from me...

    Cheers
    Rich

    I'm not sure this would warrant a video, but I've been doing a lot of work 'exploiting' the potential of SIMS XML reports that I'd be willing to write a tutorial or some pointers on as inspiration for people who maybe haven't looked down that route yet

    EDIT:
    reason this came to mid is I was one of the many people new to SIMS looking for a way to gain more flexibility over reporting and found XML a great way to get the data I needed in to my own apps, may be a bit too amateurish for what you're planning though

    @JoshJohnson:

    Not in the least, people are always looking at ways to gleen information from Sims and implement the use of that information in many ways and in many different formats and any advise or knowledge is always welcome.

    Yep, would be interested in this. Open source Linux/Zimbra with our AD integration + preauth + Prism maybe?

    Conversely, I keep coming across far too many people who claim to speak XML, but actually struggle with anything more than absolute basics. I think you could do well with this - a good grounding in how SIMS uses XML reports, the schemas and some examples of things you've found useful and any pitfalls you came across.

    This sounds interesting but I'm not sure that I do anything with tech that has not been quite well outlined elswhere online. If you are looking at a more education targeted approach then I guess I could probably find something video worthy in one of my setups.

    @JoshJohnson - xml tutorial would be great. What xml editor do you use, i've tried a few but not found anything that made it easy.

    It gives me an idea for something i would like to do, which isn't as fun as XML but could prove useful.

    I've got a script that will alter the result sets on an Assessment Manager template, however it needs priming slightly, so a video would be really good to demonstrate that. I've just rewritten with prompts to request the number of rows to alter.

    I could then add to that the relatively straightforward find and replace technique for editing the Individual Reports templates, altering the result set there too.

    So all in all a complete package for duplicating some reporting templates across result sets.

    @synack - i'm sure you can do something. I think the process of creating VMs would be good, or at least using them as a backup...

    I use one as a backup for SIMS, so you don't have to roll back a day and lose an entire day's work. That would be another good one to show.

    Wouldn't mind showcasing the SUN Ray VDI Environment and the Poor Mans VDI solution as well, for thin client computing.
