This popped in my mailbox yesterday evening:
“Dear Mohamed Yehia,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2011 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in SharePoint Server technical communities during the past year.”
I am very honored and proud to be part of the MVP community who are not only exceptional and passionate technology enthusiasts, but also a group of elite community leaders who spread and share their experiences and knowledge with their peers in the technical community.
I would like to thank all the people who have supported it me, special thanks to Marwan Tarek, Ayman El-Hattab, Shady Abu Yousef and the only and only Kailash Kylani.
The badge is up and its seems that 2011 has opened its arms right from the start.
Wishing you all the best,

Here you go:
- Go to Library Settings
- Manage Permission
- Stop Inheriting Permissions
- Grant Permissions
- Check “View Only” which restricts download.

Content Organizer is one the new cool features in SharePoint 2010 for Enterprise content management. It allows organizations to control how content is organized within their enterprise portal.
Administrators can define routing rules based on the document’s metadata. They are given the option to Send the document to another site, create a new folder, or redirect users to a Drop Off library. They can also maintain the audit trails for the document before its being routed or create a new version for an existing document.
I encourage you to read related blogs posts on Share-n-dipity
There are some key limitations worth noting:
- Only works on content types based on the Document content type.
- Works on the Site collection Document content type. Not on a modified version of the content type on a specific document library.
This week is TechWeek in Microsoft Egypt from Sunday till Thursday. TechWeek is exciting because it brings different customers from different domains together to attend awareness sessions about the different Microsoft Technologies.
There are two tracks, Business Productivity, including Office, Exchange and of course SharePoint and the other was Security and Management, from 9 to 5.
Yesterday I was there, presenting an overview on SharePoint 2010. Had great audience and lots of questions. Microsoft Egypt did a great job setting up full gear labs with 8 GB servers that ran the IW Virtual Machine.
It is free to attend, so jump in if you can.
I enjoy it every time. Looking forward for the next one.

This was a trick I learnt from member in EGYSUG, thanks Faisal.
Can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the apps.
I love the community, not any community but the SharePoint user community, particularly in Egypt, the Egypt SharePoint User Group. I love all attendees, regular members, speakers and of course the organizing committee.
I am proud to be part of this group and to be around such marvelous people.
With every event in EGYSUG, I am privileged to know new interesting people. Its an outstanding, splendid and overwhelming experience. I get the chance to talk to them, assist them, share my expertise with them and most important learn from everybody. I think this what it’s all about, about sharing and learning from others.
All this was yesterday, in our launch SP2010 Launch party. After the introduction by Kailash, Ayman El Hattab presented the new cool Visual Studio tools for SharePoint, Shady Korshed dug into Web Parts development in SP 2010, Hesham Mortada gave us a tour around the all new PowerPivot. After we finally got streaming for the keynote I presented Office Web Apps and Marwan Tarek ended it up with the cool PowerShell cmdlets for SharePoint. We had also quizzes and giveaways for our attendees.
I really enjoyed the event. I hope you did too. See you sooooon!
Thanks for all the attendees and members for sharing your time with us.
Special thanks to the organizing committee.
