SharePointless One man's experience with Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies

I would like to take a moment to thank all the organizers and participants at the first-ever SharePoint Saturday event in Virginia Beach. Thanks also to some of the celebrity spekers (Todd Bleeker and Joel Oleson) who came in from out of town and gave the event that little extra bit of credibility. Special thanks also goes out to Susan and Gary Lennon for arranging and coordinating one of the finest tech facilities I have ever seen - the Advanced Technology Center at Tidewater Community College in Virginia Beach. The ATC is actually a joint venture between Tidewater Community College and Virginia Beach City Public Schools. WOW! This facility rivaled the kind you might expect a a major state university like UVA or Virginia Tech.

Organizers:

  • Susan and Gary Lennon - Virginia Beach, VA
  • Kevin Israel - Richmond, VA
  • Michael Lotter - Raleigh, NC

The SharePoint Saturday event concept has caught on like wildfire. Check SharePointSaturday.org regularly over the next month or two to see where one might pop up in your area.

Special thanks also goes out to those who attended my sessions, "The SharePoint Enterprise" and "MOSS as a Platform for Enterprise Application Development". These were both new presentations I have not given before, and overall I thought they went over pretty well. I apologize to the group in the latter presentation for missing the target length of the session and not having enough time to step through the technical demonstration. Hopefully the source code examples and accompanying readme file will be self-explanatory enough to help make up for this oversight.

In addition to submitting my presentations to the SharePoint Saturday site, I have uploaded them to my SkyDrive.
