Community Migration User Groups

Capital Area .Net SharePoint Special Interest Group Presentation

This past Wednesday evening, Scott Hoag and I had the privilege of sharing the evening with the Capital Area .Net SharePoint Special Interest Group, hosted by Excella in the Navy League building in Arlington, VA. The crowd was lively and engaged and we even had Nick Inglis, Mack Sigman, Stacey Draper, David Berry and Cicely Behne in the mix to provide their insight and expertise, supplementing and complementing the gaps that Scott and I left open (it’s the partner ecosystem idea, right? ;)).

Nevertheless, if you were looking for a copy of the slides, they’re available here:


Capital Area .NET SharePoint User Group

Last week I received an e-mail from my colleague and coffee drinking buddy who is one of the coordinators for the Capital Area .NET SharePoint User Group asking if I’d be interested in presenting at their monthly meeting. After checking with my com padre, Scott Hoag, further discussion ensued as to whether or not to present.

Well, we accepted, so tomorrow evening we’ll be presenting on some of the pitfalls, methodologies and planning steps that should be taken to ensure that crisis and apocalypse do not ensue during a migration to SharePoint 2010.

If you’re in the area and interested in coming out, further details can be found on the SUG’s Meetup site available here:

For those that can make it out, we’ll be SharePinting afterward at the Arlington Rooftop Bar and Grill 🙂

Federal SharePoint Users Group – 1/5/2012

I realize it’s short notice, but wanted to make sure that the word got out about this evening’s Federal SharePoint Users Group meeting where Tim Ferro will be presenting on SharePoint 2010 and the use of Event Receivers.

This presentation titled SharePoint 2010 Event Receivers, is a beginning to intermediate look at Event Receivers and Event Handlers in SharePoint 2010. We will discus the different types of event receivers but focus on those related to list item events. Some basic C# code will be shown and explained followed by a demo. Throughout the presentation real world examples and stories will be used in order to show the ease of use and power of list item event receiver features in SharePoint 2010.

If you don’t know Tim, or anything about Event Receivers, I’d definitely recommend hitting up the session either in person or online to learn more about the topic – oh and Tim’s a pretty sharp guy too.
