SPS Bermuda Wrap-up

I think everyone had a fantastic time at the inaugural SharePoint and .NET Saturday Bermuda event.  I’m honored to have been able to participate.  The hospitality on the island was fantastic, and while the event was small, there was good participation in the sessions.  I hope everyone got a lot out of the day.

I’ve uploaded my deck to slide share so it is available below.

 

I look forward to future events!

SPS Atlanta Sessions on Search and Social

I’m excited to announce that I have had two sessions selected for the SPS Atlanta event on Saturday June 8th.  The past few years the organizers have established this event as one of the premiere events in the south east.

The first session is an End User focused session titled Using Search for Dynamic Content.

This session is geared towards site owners and power users and will provide an overview of the search web parts available out of the box in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 and show how they can be used to display dynamic, search driven content on your sites.  We will also do an overview of the Keyword Query Language allowing you to leverage the features to display dynamic content on your sites.

 

The second session is a Developer focused session titled Introduction to SharePoint’s Social APIs

SharePoint 2010 and 2013 offers a rich set of social capabilities that are built into the platform.  Those capabilities are available to developers through a variety of APIs so that they can be extended or leveraged in your other customizations and applications.  This session will run through the various client, server, and REST APIs available to developers.

 

Hope to see a full house!

SPSEvents NYC and Social API Presentation

I’m excited to announce that my session Introduction to SharePoint’s Social APIs has been selected for the SPS Events NYC event on Saturday July 27th.  This has been a fantastic event the past few years, and I’m sure this year will be no different. 

Here is the abstract for my session:

SharePoint 2010 and 2013 offers a rich set of social capabilities that are built into the platform.  Those capabilities are available to developers through a variety of APIs so that they can be extended or leveraged in your other customizations and applications.  This session will run through the various client, server, and REST APIs available to developers.

 

We will take a close look at the APIs themselves, work through a couple of common and not so common example of leveraging those APIs, and then talk about things like performance and best practices.

If you are in the area, stop by and say hello!

SQL Saturday Charlotte

SQL Saturday #174 in Charlotte has been announced for Saturday October 27th and is shaping up to be a great event.  The overall focus will be on Microsoft BI and with the strong BI focus there will also be a number of SharePoint related sessions available.  I will be presenting a session on SharePoint’s BCS in order to demonstrate additional ways to connect your SharePoint environment to your line of business (LOB) systems.

Event and registration details can be found on the site:  http://www.sqlsaturday.com/174/eventhome.aspx

Hope to see many of you there!

SharePoint Saturday New York–Wrap-up

The SharePoint Saturday NY event was a huge success.  Great to see so many people show up and engaged in discussions.  The organizers and volunteers did a great job this year to make sure the event went off without a hitch.  Very well orchestrated!

Thank you to everyone that attended my session.  I hope you enjoyed it and found it useful in building your development skills around search and FAST Query Language.
