SPS St. Louis

I had a wonderful time speaking at SPS St. Louis on January 11, 2014. I spoke on the same topics as I did in Phoenix. I did battle the demo gods, as my code, which I have used over and over again, did not work in St. Louis. There were others having problems with their demos, so I’m going to blame it on the WiFi and not my code. I was able to show them a working copy that I had on my SharePoint site online.

The 6 1/2 hour drive wasn’t that bad either. So, where to next? I had to skip SPSUtah event that I was scheduled to speak at. I had a prior commitment at my daughters school that I forgot about. The next time that I can speak will be in May at SPS Chicago Suburbs. I haven’t been selected to speak yet, but I am sending in my abstracts.

Confirmed! I’m Speaking At SPS-Ozarks!

SharePoint Saturday - OzarksI received an email yesterday that made it official!  I’m presenting at SharePoint Saturday – Ozarks on June 12, 2010!  This is special for me because this was my first SharePoint Saturday, and it really stoked the passion that I have about developing SharePoint solutions.  I’m presenting What I Wish I Knew Before I Implemented SharePoint presentation that I have done at other conferences. 

Keep track of all the chatter around the conference.  Follow the hash tag #spsozarks on Twitter.

Oh, I know I just moved and all but seriously, since we’re on the topic of the Ozarks.  If you would like to have a charismatic SharePoint Consultant take great care of your clients, and your business is somewhere close to Springfield, MOLet’s talk!

I’ll be bringing the Mood Dudes so be prepared to duck!

SharePoint Saturday – Indianapolis Wrap-Up

By , February 2, 2010 3:30 pm

SharePoint Saturday was a huge success.  I had a lot of fun.  To all of the organizers – this was truly one of the best organized conferences I have attended.  The speaker dinner was a blast and the venue was perfect for the creativity that SharePoint encourages! Thank you! If you ever do another one, I hope I am fortunate to present again.

For all who attended my presentation – I Wish I Knew That (What I Wish I Knew Before I Implemented SharePoint), you can download my slide deck by going to my Presentation Notes page.  If you were one of the lucky few to capture a Happy Mood Dude, take a picture of yourself with it and send it to me.  I’d love to post it on the site.

Omaha SharePoint User Group

I presented at the Omaha SharePoint User Group last night (12/16/2009).  Good meeting and a great discussion.  I did the same presentation that I did at SharePoint Saturday – Kansas City.  One thing I did find out was that my tag that has my contact information was password protected.  Talk about a downer.  Here’s a cool little application that allows mobile phone users to capture information using their phone camera and then my tag doesn’t work.  Oh well.  Not everything can go perfectly.  I have updated my tag settings and updated the tag on this website in case someone wants to try it again.  Let me know if you use the TAG and what your results were.

For more information about the Omaha SharePoint User Group or other Microsoft user groups in Omaha, go to the Omaha Microsoft Technology Group website.

I presented “What I Wish I Knew Before I Implemented SharePoint” at SharePoint Saturday in Kansas City on 12/12/2009.  This is a 100-level presentation that is meant to be a general overview of the process of implementing SharePoint.

I enjoyed my time there and for those in my session, you can download the slide-deck here.

Also, for reference, here are a list of links that I referenced during the session.

Will You Relocate?

By , November 17, 2009 11:43 am

I receive calls daily about my availability as a SharePoint developer.  Are you seeking employment?  Are you presently available?  Can you talk?  All of these questions I am sure are a result of my continually updated resume on Dice.com.  As a SharePoint Consultant, I am always interested in talking to people about new opportunities.  It’s how I make my living.  I love talking to people about SharePoint and I spend quite a bit of time developing a network of personal and professional contacts.

I employ many different techniques.  From social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, to writing on this blog or living blogging at different events, I try to promote my interest in SharePoint.  I like to help people discover the exciting world of SharePoint and so I participate in User Group meetings and attend different conferences.  Most recently, I attended the Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2009 in Las Vegas.  You can read my post about that experience here.

Inevitably, the question comes.  Are you willing to relocate?  Now – I have to ask you.  If you are recruiting for a SharePoint Developer position in Chicago, are you telling me that there are not any SharePoint developers in the Chicago area willing to look at an opportunity?  Will a company actually move a person just to fill a developer position?  Maybe I’m naive.   I was just talking to someone about a couple of positions in Washington DC.  I continually see positions out there.  Are there no developers in the DC area?  Now – for short-term projects, I will travel – no problem.  For a long-term situation – I would need to be able to telecommute.  But please don’t ask me to move my family to New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, California, Seattle, Denver or St. Louis.   I’m sure they are all nice cities, (I’ve visited most of those), I’m just not interested in moving there.

But – if you want me to move to the Springfield, Missouri area – then let’s talk!
