Speaking at SharePoint Saturday NYC 2014

image

I am pleased to announce that I will be once again presenting at SharePoint Saturday NYC on July 26th, 2014.

SharePoint administrators, end users, architects, developers of all kinds, and other professionals that work with Microsoft SharePoint Technologies will meet for the 5th SPS Events New York City event on the last Saturday of July, July 26, 2014 at the new Microsoft office located at 11 Times Square, across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 8th Ave & 42nd St.
 
Come see world-class speakers from around the country and the globe present the very same content you’ll see at conferences that cost thousands of dollars to attend, and see it – as always – absolutely free of charge.
 
Registration to attend will open June 20th; stay tuned here for more information as it becomes available!

I will be presenting “Automating your Enterprise Application Deployments with PowerShell”.

Session Abstract

In enterprise application deployments to SharePoint, there are generally farms, or web applications that host specific applications for specific groups, rather than having just an all-in-one deployment. Often times, you do not have access to these other environments, and will need to pass the deployment baton off to the system administrators of those farms.

This session will walk you through how you can deploy your applications, without needing to have the administrator who will be deploying the application, have to do much more than type a few keys into the SharePoint Administration Console and press enter – and having full configuration and deployment of your custom SharePoint applications to other environments.

Recap and Resources from SharePoint Saturday NYC

I have to hand it to the organizers of the event, Becky Isserman (@MossLover), Jason Gallicchio (@PrincetonSUG), Greg Hurlman (@ghurlman), and Tasha Scott (@TashasEv) as well as their volunteers, for putting together once of the best organized SharePoint Saturdays I have been to. Great job! Lots of great sessions, sponsors, and speakers made this quite the memorable event! I was able to connect with old friends, and meet plenty of new ones.

The organizers also did something very special and unique with the speaker, volunteer, and organizer shirts – each of them either had a patch for the NYPD, NY Port Authority, or FDNY, remembering the attacks on the World Trade Center, as in just over a month from now, will be the 10th anniversary of that tragic day, in which thousands of lives were lost. This shirt will be definitely one of the conference shirts that I will be holding on to. There were lots of conversations about that day – the people we knew, where we were, and what we were doing… and how it has affected our lives since.

I had a great time giving my session (once I caught my breath after literally running around right up until the starting bell, searching for a power adapter, as mine would not work!), and had a lot of great questions from the crowd! With that, here are my slides from the event, with one important update – the CloudShare link no longer works… found the expiration notice in my junk mail folder the day after the environment was removed 😦 I will work on getting a new one up and running within the next couple of weeks – then the link should be functional again.

 

 

Thank you all for attending, if you were able to make it. Someone was even there due to my extranets blog post series (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), so I know at least once person is reading this!

If you’re in the DC area this week, be sure to catch my session at SharePoint Saturday – The Conference!

Speaking at SharePoint Saturday New York on 7/30/11

I am pleased to announce (a bit belated) that I will be presenting at the next SharePoint Saturday New York on July 30th, 2011.  I will be presenting Planning and Configuring Extranets in SharePoint 2010.

Most companies, large or small, require contact and collaboration with external entities, whether they are vendors, clients, or contractors. SharePoint gives us the ability to open up portals for collaboration with these external entities – this session will show you how to accomplish this using SharePoint 2010.

We will review what is required to make SharePoint “open” to the external world, discuss scenarios regarding security and privacy, as well as walk through configuring Forms Based Authentication, Claims Based Authentication, as well as using Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2010, to authenticate, and manage our external users.

Once completing this session, you should have a firm grasp on how to configure an extranet environment using SharePoint 2010, as well as what should be considered during the planning of your extranet scenarios.

SharePoint Saturday New York is one of the great SharePoint Saturday events – put on by some great people – Becky Isserman (@MossLover), Jason Gallicchio (@PrincetonSUG), Greg Hurlman (@ghurlman), with Tasha Scott (@TashasEv) coordinating volunteer efforts.
