I attended the Central Texas SharePoint User group the other night and one of my long time friends said “Where have you been? Why aren’t you blogging as much?” To which I could only reply “I have been BUSY!”. In the past month I have been to:
Orlando for SharePoint Connections
London for the Best Practices Conference
Monterey, CA for my Dad’s 80th birthday
Mountain View, CA to Teach for Critical Path Training
San Jose for the Silicon Valley SharePoint Users Group
Back to Monterey (I LOVE it there)
I am also working on some VERY cool projects with my Aptillon friends, Todd Baginski and Darrin Bishop. We should be publishing the results of this work soon, so be patient and you will see the work in print and in sessions soon.
Yep, Todd, Darrin and I have been burning the candle at both ends on Windows Phone and SharePoint. One challenge in the different authentication mechanisms that can be used to access the content and stay secure. We took what we have learned and with a LOT of help from great folks at Microsoft figured out the tricks to access SharePoint from Windows Phone through Unified Access Gateway. You can read all about it here: Building Windows Phone 7 applications with SharePoint 2010 Products and Unified Access Gateway (UAG): http://bit.ly/W7UAGWP
I received my copy of the May 2011 edition of SharePoint Pro Magazine and was delighted to see that the article that my buddy (and co-founder of Aptillon) Gary Lapointe and I wrote was published. It has been on their web site for a while at the SharePoint Pro site: http://www.sharepointpromag.com/article/sharepoint/monitor-sharepoint-user-profile-changes-129846, but it is so rewarding to see it in print. Gary got the head shot, which I find funny and rewarding at the same time, he drove the article and deserves the credit (plus I have since learned that for all his blogging fame, this was his first print article. Personally, I think he has a great future in the SharePoint world… ) Read the article and you decide.
I am glad you asked! I am certainly not slowing down anytime soon. Here is what is on the horizon:
San Antonio, TX May 23rd-25th for SharePoint Connections Coast to Coast – San Antonio
Austin, TX June 8 for the Central Texas SharePoint User Group
Online June 13th-17th for the Critical Path Training – SharePoint 2010 Administrator – Webcast
Houston, TX June 20th –24th for the Critical Path Training – SharePoint 2010 Administrators Survival Camp
Chicago, IL August 8th-10th for SharePoint Connections Coast to Coast – Chicago
Willa and Ruby are doing great, thanks for asking! They are glad Dad is back home for a while.
