iPod User Perspective on This Week in SharePoint Joel

Joel and Mark Miller may live on to be THE name in SharePoint Podcasts! I love the combination. These two characters complement each other very well. I felt like I was sitting right next to the two of them. In some ways it reminded me of the dinner after SharePoint Saturday Boston.

John Stover – JQuery Maps In SharePoint Designer

John’s got a huge audience in this 10AM session. I count about 60. Full House!   The audience interaction is great too. Demonstrating the Data View Web Part, John covered a lot of introductory basics in SharePoint Designer. For example, he explained how you can set the default new form of a List through right clicking the list in the SharePoint Designer left sidebar. He showed a map of TheSUG.org users using the jquery jMaps wrapper of Google Maps. After
