Bob Fox lets us know that Dave Mann, SharePoint workflow genius, is speaking at the NJ SharePoint user group meeting on Wednesday evening, 11/19/08. Don’t miss it. (Sadly, my corporate overlord has scheduled a big group meeting Wed night and I will miss it).
Here are some session details:
Session Title “Deploying Workflows in a Large Scale SharePoint Environment”
Workflow in SharePoint is an exciting new capability. However, it is a capability that is often misunderstood when it comes to the impact it has on your environment. For small environments, the out-of-the-box settings, configurations and architectural approach are probably sufficient. But what about an environment that will be processing thousands of documents per day? How can you make sure that those environments will not falter under the load, but still meet SLA’s for performance and responsiveness? This session will explore why focusing on your workflow subsystem is important, and cover the needs of a large scale workflow environment from the farm level down to individual workflow design specifications. Learn why all workflows need to be looked at in light of performance and scalability as well as how to build workflows that scale in an environment that scales, monitor workflow processing and overcome common obstacles. This session will cover architectural guidance for your SharePoint environment as well as specific coding practices to ensure you get the most out of your SharePoint workflows.
