FREE WEBINAR – SharePoint 2010 Public Facing Sites
Although it is late notice, I thought I would put up a plug for a free webinar. SharePoint MVP Paul Stork and I are presenting on Best Practices for SharePoint 2010 Public Facing Sites. I would love to go in to all of the topics on this post, but it would be easier if you just joined the webinar. Heck, it is free! Check it out here. Hope to see you there. 4/11/2011 Update: At the request of some followers ShareSquared has provided a link to the recorded version of the webinar. Now if you missed something ......

Are you ready for SharePoint 2010?
With SharePoint's next release on the horizon (May 12th) many of my clients and colleagues are starting to ramp up for the upcoming tidal wave of functionality. Microsoft has been doing a terrific job of getting as much information out in the public lime light as possible over the last few months and I think that will definitely pay off with regards to acceptance of the new version of SharePoint. However, there are still some aspects of the new platform that are a little murky. Aspects such as: "Should ......

Climbing higher mountains…
A while back I decided to leave ProKarma, Inc. There were many reasons for my departure most of which I won't detail in this blog post. However I am proud to announce that I am now part of the ShareSquared, Inc team. I am sure that most of you might not have ever heard of ShareSquared so that is the reason for the post. Not only to update everyone of where I have been, but also give you more information about ShareSquared. ShareSquared is a Microsoft Gold Partner that has consultants spread across ......

Gary Lapointe at CoSSUG
Last night was quite a deep run through the things you can do with SharePoint's administration interface. The Colorado Springs SharePoint User Group was privileged to have local SharePoint MVP Gary Lapointe presenting on how he created his STSADM extensions (an add-on that you can find on CodePlex). It was quite breathtaking to see the number of new extensions he has developed to extend the functionality of the out of the box STSADM utility that you and I use. To be exact he has added a whopping ......

Upcoming October CoSSUG Meeting
If you haven't been keeping up with the latest news on the Colorado Springs SharePoint User Group site (www.cossug.net) then I thought I would drop a little bit of a blast on my blog. We have decided to move the meeting nights from the first Tuesday to the second Wednesday of every month. This was mainly due to the fact that we were overlapping with another really established .NET User Group in the same area. We couldn't have that. We want everyone to be able to make it to all of the User Group meetings ......

50064 – Advanced SharePoint Development, Part II
In a previous post I started to get in to how I was surprised by the amount of detail Chris Givens put in to creating this course. Nevertheless I am still astounded at the amount of detail and the depth he goes in to. Let me back up a bit here. I have been requested to teach Chris's Advanced SharePoint Developer course at AmeriTeach next week (9/8 – 9/12). So I spent much of last week getting deeper in to the instructor demos and the course labs. I was very impressed not only by the amount of detail ......

CoSSUG Website is live…
As part of taking part in starting up a new SharePoint User Group I finally was able to get the site up and running. Funny and ironic as it might seem Shannon and I decided to go with the "eat your own dog food" approach and create the site with WSS 3.0. Furthermore our efforts were also expedited by using the Community Kit for SharePoint's User Group site template. Now don't just assume that since it is up that it will not change. There will be quite a few additions to the site in the coming days ......

Colorado Springs SharePoint User Group
So what is Big, Brainy, and new in Colorado? Well, if you haven't guessed by the title of the post then you need a course in observation. J There is a new community coming to town and it already has started to take on a life of its own. Shannon Bray and I have decided to start up a User Group on Colorado Springs. Not because there isn't one already in Denver that already does a good job, but because of popular demand from clients and associates in Colorado Springs that have to drive close to an hour ......
