Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Denver

In a couple of weeks (August 7, 2010) I’ll be presenting a session at the SharePoint Saturday in Denver, Colorado.

The session title and description follow. Here’s a little glimpse of what you will see in the session; it’s pretty sweet! Come check it out!

How to Create a YouTube-like Application in SharePoint with the Digital Assets Library and the SharePoint JavaScript Client Object Model

This session demonstrates how to use the new Digital Assets Library and the Videos content type to create YouTube-like functionality in your SharePoint sites. First, the session describes the new functionality the Digital Assets Library provides for videos, images, and audio files. Then the session shows how to create and configure the Digital Assets Library to display a list of videos complete with thumbnail previews. Finally, the session shows how to create a page to watch each video inside a Silverlight video player and display the details about it. All of this great functionality is implemented without writing a single line of managed code; only JavaScript, HTML, and CSS are needed to deliver the functionality!

In case you are wondering, the ski lifts should open in Colorado in 89 days!  Woot!
