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.

The Bad Seed: Battling with Corrupt SharePoint Lists
I had a bug that I worked on for two days. If anyone read my tweets for the past few days they would notice that I wanted to rip my hair out. All my webpart form did was refresh the page. It would not write to the SharePoint Logs or push an error with a Debug.Write Statement. I have a lot of poofy curly hair and I wanted to pull it out of my head piece by piece. Finally I decided to do some last resort debugging, by writing to one of the textboxes to see where the item failed. I noticed that the ......

Coders 4 Charity:Why do I want to give my time?
Last year I had a great experience giving my time to charities for three days in Kansas City. If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I attended last year's event.

SharePoint Saturday Kansas City - My Day of Endurance
For anyone new I met yesterday I probably don't remember your name I am really sorry. You see yesterday I was pushing myself to the limit in a couple of weeks and my body was not all too happy. When I got home I watched an episode of House with my boyfriend and called it a night sometime around 11 pm. I never go to bed before midnight and I was exhausted and passed right out until 12 pm the next day. Today I am going to be taking it easy, so I can start coding again on Monday. I will not be running ......
