The second annual Toronto SharePoint Camp is coming on Saturday March 20th. Details and registration can be found at www.torontosharepointcamp.com. We are a Gold Sponsor, and have both myself and Joe Seguin (blog.joeseguin.ca) speaking.
I'll be talking about Extranets in SharePoint 2007 and 2010. Here's a copy of my abstract.
SharePoint is a platform not only for internal sites like Intranets and external sites like public web sites, but is also a great place to connect with customers, partners, vendors, and others outside your organization. During this session you will learn some of the decision points when setting up your Extranet in SharePoint.
- MOSS or WSS?
- DMZ, firewalls, Forefront and security in general
- Where are my user accounts? AD or SQL forms-based authentication? How do I setup forms-based authentication?
- How do my business users setup sites and users?
- Can I integrate it in with my back-end systems like Microsoft CRM?
We will use real world SharePoint 2007 and 2010 examples to illustrate. Extranets for Cadillac Fairview, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Heart and Stroke Foundation, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will be shown.
