The SharePoint Calendar – SharePoint Events and Releases

Several of the folks I know, including Joel and the SharePoint Product Team started posting “calendars” as text in a blog post. That was entertaining because I was just getting ready to do the same thing to talk about the conferences I’d be at and the presentations I’d be giving. However, I realized that we’ve got the same problem with calendars as we have with most content, it’s scattered all over the internet. So I created a SharePoint Calendar that has all of the major events that I could find. I’ve added an email alias that you can send requests for calendar updates to. (My assistant will process these for now, if we get enough activity I’ll automate the system.)

Once we get a few people linking to their entries in the calendar I’ll put a web part on the page that will provide a set of links to pages linking to the event (so you can see who’s presenting what at the event)

Help Your SharePoint User

With a little luck we’ll end up with one calendar for SharePoint stuff.

    Hallo Robert. I came across your article titled ‘Get out of the information technology reactionary rut’ at the TechRepublic website. I am starting to publish a management magazine in February 2009 and i was impressed by the article. Now, am doing the mag on a shoe-string budget and i was wondering if you could be kind enough to let me reprint it. I will not be able to offer any payments. As a matter of fact, am soliciting contributions from the network of friends i have made in the consultancy world. The response is encouraging. I was tickled to read that sometimes you go looking for info only to get a link to your own past articles. Down here in Nairobi, Kenya, I would call that being blessed. I look forward to your response.

    Kind regards
