TSPUG Talk on Web Content Management

I spoke last week on web content management in 2010.  The talk gave an overview of WCM in SharePoint, and then we went through two scenarios.  The first was a live upgrade of a 2007 to 2010, followed by a new net build.

For the upgrade we used the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario's Intranet site called Tickr.  This is a MOSS 2007 site that we launched for the HSFO last summer.  As part of Microsoft's Rapid Deployment Program, we are working with HSFO to create a 2010 version of the site (along with a net new Board of Directors portal in 2010).

For the net new build, we are working with Samuel & Sons on building a new public web site, also as part of Microsoft's 2010 RDP program.

I've made the PowerPoint slide deck from the presentation available as a download.  You can find it at What's New in Web Content Management in SharePoint 2010 2010-02-17.

I promised during the session to post the details of the upgrade process, so I've created another post at Upgrading a MOSS 2007 WCM Site to 2010.
