A few cool findings at codeplex for Sharepoint..

Been busy upgrading to SP2 on a couple of sites, and doing a lot of test of new stuff while my students are doing labs. No issues as of yet with sp2. However on codeplex I found some interesting stuff:

SPMessaging – Twitter variant for your sharepoint:

Windows Live Authentication – Actually works and is quite simple to implement

Powershell console in sharepoint – A perfect complement to the Powershell components of iLoveSharepoint

Course tip: MS50248 Implementing and Managing Microsoft Online Services

I have been working as a MCT for a while and though that it was about time that I wrote a course of my own. I selected a topic near to my heart and I ended up writing a MS50248 Implementing and Managing Microsoft Online Services which will be availiable from Microsoft within 3 months at Microsoft Courseware Library. The course is already set for delivery at the CPLS I work, but other CPLS might also be delivering the course as its a official Microsoft Courseware Library course and availiable to all for delivery.
