Imtech Test Content Generator v1.3.0.0 (free SharePoint 2007 tool)

Testing the editors area in SharePoint 2007 isn't really convenient. Image you would like to check whether the overview Web Part you have made really shows 100 items per page. Copying the items in the Explorer View might be a solution, still it's that handy when it comes to testing various Content Types and Page Layouts. Another scenario you might want to test is scheduling: does my page become available at the given timestamp? Yes, you can test this using the SharePoint 2007 interface, but still I think it can be done much easier.

Webrichtlijnen (WCAG 1.0 Priority 2+) Accessibility in SharePoint 2007

Last Thursday I gave a presentation about accessibility in SharePoint 2007: the existing challenges and my approach to it. I have been invited by the Dutch Information Worker User Group to share my experience with other Dutch developers. Standing on the other side on such an event was my first time. I have to admit I did find it quite exciting and didn't really know what to expect of it - being a developer it's not really your daily job to speak for a group of over 40 people. For those of you who didn't have the chance to attend my presentation let me give you a brief overview of the contents.

First 100% Webrichtlijnen (WCAG 1.0 Priority 2+) compliant SharePoint site - almost there

As I have recently mentioned, here at Imtech ICT Business Solutions we are busy with first 100% Webrichtlijnen compliant Internet facing web site based on SharePoint 2007. Earlier this week we have finished the development en begun testing the solution. Yes, we have discovered a few undocumented features which we have immediately resolved. Anyway testing for compliancy with the Dutch government's guidelines was a serious part of this project and it was my job to achieve this goal.
