As I write this, we’re getting into the final session of TechDays Toronto, which in my track – Developing for the Microsoft-Based Platform – features SharePoint guru Reza Alirezaei doing his presentation, Developing and Consuming Services for SharePoint.

If you ask me the question “What is SharePoint?”, I’d most likely give you a description that sounds like this:

how sharepoint appears to uninitiated

Here’s a more accurate description of what SharePoint is:


Reza’s session takes a look at another aspect of SharePoint: as a platform on which you can build and deploy custom web services that other clients can call upon.

Once his session’s done, TechDays Toronto will wrap up and then the tear-down process begins.

Next stop: Halifax on November 2nd and 3rd!

    I am most impressed with “Developing SharePoint Services” session and I think it was the only Level 300 presentation in Toronto TechDays 2009. A session packed with rich contents applied to advance real life SharePoint tasks. This session was a testament how a presenter with real life experience makes a difference.

    Could you make the power point and code samples available for download please?
