The aim of these get-togethers is to provide a welcoming atmosphere and a platform for learning in an informal environment, to make technology accessible and to be of interest to all age groups and all people, particularly women. It is an opportunity for like-minded ‘girls’ to talk about technology over food and drinks.

I'll spend 30-40 minutes covering our implementation while mixing in some of the philosophical underpinnings of Lean including flow, pull, and standard work. We'll transition into an open discussion about emerging Lean practices with an emphasis on why you should care, how to get started, and highlighting resources I've found useful in learning, developing, and applying Lean Software Development practices.

  • Wednesday, September 17, 2008 7:00 PM: Enabling SharePoint Authentication Against DotNetNuke - You probably already know that you can setup SharePoint to authenticate via Forms Based Authentication and better yet using the AspNet Membership and Role providers as its back-end. You probably also know that DotNetNuke also uses the AspNet Membership as its default provider. In theory, SharePoint and DotNetNuke could share *one* central membership store. In this session, Antonio Chagoury will take you from theory to practice by setting up SharePoint to use DotNetNuke's database as the Membership Provider. Antonio will also go into some *gotchas* with the Role Provider, and provide tips and tricks for making it all work.
