Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

I am going to speak about some of the AJAX Page Loading User Controls that I have created.  I am going to talk about how a developer would go about converting the SharePoint Application to work with AJAX.  Here is my bio and Abstract:


AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) allows developers to create loading screens easily without a great deal of development in SharePoint 2007. In this session we will walk through how to create various page load events using the AJAX toolkit, Web User Controls, the SmartPart, and SharePoint. We will also convert the web .config, master pages, and server, so that the Site Collection is AJAX ready.


Becky Isserman has been a SharePoint Developer, since 2005 when she went through the Portal University with Levi, Ray, and Shoup in Springfield, IL. She is an Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and a Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD). She has been a web designer/developer since she was fifteen hand coding HTML 3.0 websites in NotePad. She enjoys working with SharePoint 2007, because she can perform the roles of administrator, developer, designer, and architect. She currently lives in Olathe, Kansas, where she works at Terracon Consultants, Inc. and lives with her two cats, Gambit and Rogue, plus her boyfriend, Johnny. If you would like to contact her you can e-mail her at or fill out the contact form at her blog


Here is a link to the School of Dev if you are interested in attending:  Thanks to Scott Spradlin for telling me about this event and coercing me to come out.  I would say he's one of my favorite St. Louis Devs.  I hope to meet some nice Oklahomans next week, especially David Walker who is one of my Twitter Followers.  If anyone knows of any other code camps coming up that need presenters in the 500 mile radius I would be willing to come out just let me know in advance the information.
