Topic: Introduction to Visio Services

Visio services is a powerful new addition to SharePoint 2010. In this session, we will look at different ways that you can incorporate Visio into your SharePoint projects. Once we have the diagrams published to our SharePoint site we will look at different ways to connect the diagram to SharePoint lists and web parts. This session will allow you to see Visio services in action using real world examples, such as an interactive process diagram. If you have ever wondered if you would use Visio services or if it would provide value to your organization then this intro session is just want you need! This session will help you see how integration with SharePoint can really take your drawings to the next level.

Extended Session: Creating Simple Dashboards Using Out-of-the-Box Web Parts

In this session we will look at some basic out-of-the-box ways to create powerful dashboards for managing teams and projects. Our dashboards will be created using multiple connected Web parts all configured from the browser. This session will give you a good overview of lists, views, Web part pages and Web part connections. This is a great session for those just getting started with SharePoint and want to push the limits of out-of-the-box configuration.
