For many years now I have been involved with Prince William Special Olympics(PWSO). My youngest son is Autistic and Special Olympics have been such a great organization for him that I decided to get involved. Over the last couple of years, I have set up their web site using DotNetNuke, auto generating reports using the Open XML framework, etc. I have for the last couple of months begun to work on what we’re calling the Prince William Special Olympics Information Management System (not a very original name, in fact I think I need one of those catchy Microsoft codenames). I have begun collecting requirements for the first phase which is to manage our Volunteers. At the end of the project I am hoping to make it open source and have available to the community. It may be something that the various “give camps” may have an interest in.

Thanks to everyone who attended my Nova Code Camp presentation. Since the code samples are the same as Richmond Code Camp, you can check out that blog post on for the samples.
During my talk I was asked by several people about accessing data in a SharePoint List. Since I have very limited knowledge about SharePoint, I answer the question by saying I believe that it was possible with SharePoint 2010. On my way home, I remembered that SharePoint 2010 allows you to make a list an Odata endpoint. With this in mind using my odata sample could be used just change the Uri to point to the odata endpoint for the SharePoint List.

But here are some the links to some of the sites I was talking about during my presentation.
