WSS / SharePoint Portal OM topic requests?

I've got a slew of topics that I've already got brewing in my head for the next two weeks... This comming week I'll be talking about the SharePoint Portal OM via code samples and work into it in a similar fashion to how I introduced the WSS OM already.  I then will be introducing customization via site definitions and other related topics.  I think after that I may touch on backup/restore... that is a bit out yet though, so my plans may change.

Before I get too far down any specific road, I wanted to throw a post up here and request that if anyone has any specific questions about what I've written so far or would like for me to expand upon any topic to please throw me a note.  I also would be willing to entertain any simple code sample requests... I'm not offering to write your entire application for you, but if there is an OM concept you are struggling with then drop a line.  If I think it would fit this series, I'll write about it and provide some sample code. 

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend.

    I would like to see how to safely navigate subweb collections and avoid that pesky authentication box when a user hits a site they do not have access to.

    From what I recall, this was raised and it is by design. I will verify this and get with you directly.



    I was thinking of covering this lightly when I speak on customization in ~2 weeks. I will put some extra focus on it for you. Thanks for the suggestion. I will defintately be covering supportibility in customizations when I speak on that topic.

    I would like to WSS webPart/Definition/Template Gallery manipulations in C# code.

    I am new to the WSS object models and currently interested in SOA/Biztalk integration concepts in a shared workspace on WSS.

    Template/defintion/WebPart identity mechanisms and how they relate to .NET assembly strong names (if at all) would be good.

    A simple set of code examples for SOA support in each gallery (Site, List, WebPart) would be a good start.

    Note that being a programmer I would like to avoid FrontPage.

    Having a web part event transmitted to a remote BizTalk server would be also be good example.

    Thanks much for your Blog. The code helps with the learning curve.
