Travis Lingenfelder gave a presentation today by Live Meeting for the San Antonio SharePoint User Group in the place of a December meeting at a physical location. He explained and demoed the Regular Expression Validator example from Todd Bleeker’s SharePoint Development Book. I noticed Travis was recording, so hopefully we can make it available to those who could not attend.

Our next meeting is January 27th, the fourth Tuesday of the month at New Horizons San Antonio. Jeff Deverter, SharePoint Architect at Rackspace, will be presenting.
Also, announced on the live meeting was a new SASUG giveaway. Mindsharp has donated one conference pass to the SharePoint Best Practices Conference in February. This is a $1195 value! If you are interested in attending and a SASUG member, please contact myself or David Broussard.
