So, SharePoint Saturday Denver kicked off a very busy few weeks for me and I’m just now getting around to posting my slide deck from the event. I know, I’m a slacker. Feel free to berate me.
In case you haven’t heard, Clayton Cobb (@warrtalon), Toby Mai (@grumpytech) and crew did an amazing job putting together a solid two day event. The first day was a “paid” day and the second day was free for all attendees. I REALLY like this format as both a speaker and an organizer. It really enhanced the conference without taking away the spirit of SharePoint Saturday. Again, GREAT job by all those who organized and helped out.
On Friday I spoke about my love/hate relationship with jQuery in sort of a hybrid session between my previous jQuery sessions and my SharePoint Conference session I did with Eric Harlan.
The more I speak about jQuery and the more I use jQuery and the more I hear about how other people are using jQuery the more I know that this session is critical and that people need to learn the right way to do jQuery. There are too many people drinking the jQuery kool-aid and using it as their go-to tool when in some instances it shouldn’t even be an option. jQuery is a GREAT tool, and client side development is only going to grow in the future. So, people MUST learn to use it and use correctly. *steps off of soapbox*
Anyway, for day 2 I decided to finally update the first session I ever presented “Wrapping Your Head Around the SharePoint Beast”. This thing was due for a rewrite. I still present this session as the session I wish *I* would have seen when SharePoint was dumped in my lap and I hope you guys that attended got something useful out of it.
I had great crowds in both sessions and met a lot of great people. I’m definitely looking forward to the next SharePoint Saturday Denver.
Next up for me is SharePoint Saturday Kansas City on December 10th where I will again be presenting both of these sessions. Hope to see you guys there!
