Speaking at the Connecticut SharePoint User Group (CTSPUG) on December 13th, 2012

I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking at the Connecticut SharePoint User Group (CTSPUG) next week on Tuesday, December 13th, from 6-8PM.

I will be delivering a presentation I normally do with one of my partners-in-crime, Mark Rackley (@mrackley), but I will be going solo on this one, so I may need a stand-in to poke fun at…

Session Title: SharePoint Development Best Practices a/k/a: Just Freakin’ Work! Overcoming Hurdles and Avoiding Pain with SharePoint Development

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.

Attendees will learn:
1. Commonly used methods to improve functionality and performance
2. Best practices for disposing of SP Objects
3. How to avoid common issues when writing custom code for SharePoint

PREREQUISITES: Developers need to have a basic knowledge of SharePoint, know C# and be comfortable in Visual Studio.
