I’m very happy to announce that I will be giving a presentation on the European SharePoint Conference in Berlin. I will be doing a session on Managed Metadata together with my collegae Donald Hessing. Here is a description of the session:
The use of Managed Meta Data in SharePoint seems to be trivial. You link the managed meta data service application to the proxy group that you want to use in the webapplication, you add a managed meta data field to the list and link that to the termset you want to use. No magic here! But once we dive into the more advanced scenarios we will see that the use, development and management has a lot of dark sides. What is actually stored in a taxonomy field, do I need the note field, where is the TaxonomyHiddenList good for, can I use managed meta data in the sandbox, how do I use the taxonomy field with search, are there any restrictions from an architectural point of view?
The session will be on Thursday the 20th of October at 11:15.
Hope to meet you there!

This means, in this particular case, that the datalayer components of the application are in seperate DLL’s. I wanted to deploy these DLL’s to the BIN folder of the webapplication instead of to the Global Assembly Cache. This way I don’t need to put third party code in the GAC, and I have more control over what the code is allowed and not allowed to do. More...
