ToolFest Community Meeting – Thank You

Last week we had one of the most exciting IW community meetings. We had 7 presenters show off a codeplex tool or 3rd party component which they feel adds value to them in their SharePoint world. Each presenter had 15 minutes to strut their stuff. By the end, the audience had really got their monies worth, even though it was a free event. I would like to thank the following community members for their time and effort in preparing and presenting.

  • Dario Mratovich – from Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) in Johannesburg. Dario spoke about the CodePlex project SharePoint Manager 2007
  • Dirk Prinsloo – from iSolve in Johannesburg. Dirk spoke about GARY LAPOINTE's STSADM extensions
  • Bramley Maetsa – from DataCentrix in Johannesburg, Bramley spoke about tips and tricks using STSADM.exe
  • Zlatan Dzinic – from BCX in Cape Town. Yes, we Live Meeting’ed this puppy in and he did his show and tell remotely. Zlatan spoke about the CodePlex project Sushi
  • Cathy Kohler – from Intervate in Johannesburg. Cathy showed off Nintex Reporting
  • Michael O’Donovan (that’s me) – from Microsoft in Johannesburg. Michael presented Colligo for Outlook and Colligo Pro.
  • Marc Lenferna-De-La-Motte – from 3Fifteen in Johannesburg. Marc presented the CodePlex project SmartTools for SharePoint


Dirk Prinsloo walked away with new super snazzy Microsoft keyboard and mouse set for being voted as the best session. Well done Dirk!


We hope to have a few more sessions like this over the years. Keep the feedback coming.
