Jan KalisJan tells me…

It’s my pleasure to announce series of upcoming Project 2010 webcasts for developers and BI specialists - spanning from extending User Interface of Project 2010 to deep drill down on workflow creation and extending the BI using Excel Services and Performance Point Services!

We would like to also announce the Project 2010 Solution Starters! They were created to help in deployment and customization of Project Server 2010. This set of Solution Starters is focusing on Demand Management experience in Project 2010. The Solution Starters source code will be publicly available via MSDN Code Gallery - so anyone can extend the experience! In this regard we offer two series of Web Casts – the introductory series as well as deep code drill-down. Please note the source code and additional documents will be available after the respective webcast.

MSDN Webcast: Real-World Solutions: Filter Resource and Project data based on Custom Fields

300

Monday, April 19, 2010
1:00 P.M.–2:00 P.M. Pacific Time

You are creating a custom Windows application for a client that extracts and displays Project and Resource information. Because the PSI provides no way to filter these entities prior to retrieval from the PSI, you must retrieve all of the projects or resources in order to filter them by Custom Field value. Because this client has some international users on slow WAN links, you must minimize the payload sent to the user by the PSI call.
