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 don’t think it’s fully hit me yet.  This past Thursday was the last user group meeting of the year and the last meeting with me present as leader.  Next week I am meeting with about 4 or 5 people to hand over the KC Office Geeks.  Every so often I look back and reflect on where I have come in the past few years and how I got to this point in time.  We have 177 people on the mailing list and an average from 15-20 people at each meeting.  When Jeff handed off the group to me we were average 3 people per meeting.  There were no events in Kansas City – SharePoint or Dot Net related.  Since then we have had a Day of Dot Net and SharePoint Saturday (thanks Lee Brandt).  I just don’t know what to say.  Thank you Kansas City.  Thank you Jeff Julian, John Alexander, Doug Butscher, Bob Davis, Karthik Venkataraman, Brian Laird, Joyce Laird, Clint Edmonson…

It just hit me recently that in 5 weeks I won’t have Lee or Brian nearby.  No geek lunches for a while.  Do people in New Jersey organize geek lunches for their .Net friends?  Do they scream out annoyingly “BECKKYYYYYYYYY!!!!”?   If I don’t say it enough in the next few weeks guys I’m really going to miss you.  All the members of the UG, all the volunteers for SharePoint Saturday KC, and all my friends in Kansas City.  The community would not be around without you guys.  Please continue to keep doing what you are doing so that the Kansas City Community can continue to grow.
