MVP Sessions wheel

I wasn’t sure whether to call it a wheel or a clock-face, but since there are 24 MVP Visio 2010 sessions (see )  I decided on a wheel … so in this blog I present my alternative interface into these sessions, created in Visio of course!

I created an Excel workbook in which I listed all of the sessions, their descriptions, and links to the video and any supporting files. I then created the wheel diagram, and used Link Data to Shapes to automatically add Shape Data rows and hyperlinks to each shape, and Data Graphics to automatically colour each shape.

Finally, I saved the Visio page as web pages (VML, XAML and SVG format output), and as pdf.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
