Speaking at the SharePoint Best Practices Conference 2010 – Washington, D.C.

Looking through my posts recently, I notice I had left out a major conference! The Best Practices Conference in Washington, D.C.!

In any event – my co-presenter Mark Rackley did a good write up about it here: http://www.sharepointhillbilly.com/archive/2010/08/03/the-truth-behind-sharepoint-best-practices.aspx and more information on the conference can be found here: http://www.bestpracticesconference.com

This is one of the biggest SharePoint related conferences of the year. And as luck has it, they usually have one on the east coast (D.C.) and on the west coast (San Francisco). So, which ever one you are closest to, and you are involved in SharePoint, you should be attending. There are many great speakers and sessions available on all sorts of SharePoint topics, centering around best practices. Even if you only learn one thing (and you are bound to learn a LOT more than that), it is worth the conference price alone.

While you’re there, be sure to drop into the session I am co-presenting with Mark – “SharePoint Customization: Overcoming Hurdles and Avoiding Pain”.

Abstract: "Why am I getting a security error?" "Why does my code work sometimes, but not others?" "I wonder if McDonalds is hiring." Writing custom code in SharePoint opens up unlimited possibilities but also throws many hurdles in your way that will slow you down if you don’t take them into account. So, before giving up and searching for careers in the fast food industry, equip yourself with the knowledge you need to succeed in writing custom code for SharePoint.

In this session you will learn:

  • Best practices for avoiding performance issues
  • Best practices for avoiding memory leaks
  • Best practices for elevating privileges
  • Avoid not disposing of SP Objects

Should be a hoot!

So – go ahead and register while there is still time, and we’ll see you in D.C.!
