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.

Speaking at the SharePoint Maine User Group – December 11, 2012

I have the honor of speaking at the SharePoint group with by far the best acronym, SPUGME. Makes me wish I put more effort into the BASPUG acronym! 🙂

I will be up there on December 11, 2012, and presenting The Ribbon UI and Custom Actions in SharePoint 2010.

I am excited to speak at this (fairly new) group, and, to meet some more of the New England SharePoint Community.

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.

For more information on the CTSPUG, and to register for the meeting, please visit: http://ctdotnet.org/CTSPUG.aspx I hope to see you there! I had fun speaking in Hartford at the last SharePoint Saturday Hartford, and am looking forward to going back!

Speaking at Week3–Collaboration Technology Interest Group on September 21st, 2011

image

One of the groups I help out with has been Week3. And while I have helped in the planning and marketing of it for some time, I have yet to speak for one of its online sessions. This is changing next month, I will be presenting a session on search. See below for more information on Week3, as well as the session, and I hope you can make it! (it’s free, and online!)

 

Who? What? Where? – Searching in SharePoint

This session will cover the importance of search in a SharePoint environment, as well has how to make use of it from the end user, site collection administrator level. We will not discuss search architecture, or managing search in Central Administration. This session will focus on finding information, as well as making information findable.

When: September 21st, 2011 – 11AM EST

Register: https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/898927585

 

What is Week3?

We are an online interest group designed to provide a platform of discussion and learning around how collaboration technologies can optimize business productivity. Our focus is on ROI, not code.

Week3’s mission is to create an open, unbiased community of business professionals, dedicated to the growth and development of collaboration techniques, using technologies such as Microsoft SharePoint (2010, MOSS, WSS) as a means to improving organizational productivity.
