SPSEvents – Virginia Beach 2014

Well, it’s 2014 and you all know what that means… SPSEvents presents SharePoint Saturday Virginia Beach at the Tidewater Community College ATC. This was the sixth year for the event and the community was great! It’s been interesting to have attended several of the SPSVB events over the years and see them continue to refine, get better, introduce new speakers and also to see the community continue to develop.

As for me, it was a great time to bump into the likes of Adam Levithan, Fabian Williams, Patrick Curran, David Berry, Tasha Scott, Susan Lennon, Becky Isserman, Christian Buckley, Joel Oleson, Erin Glenn, Stephen Heister and Benjamin Niaulin.

I presented two sessions at the event in the afternoon. One on the topic of “Getting Started with Office 365.” It’s a quick overview of licensing, some of the plan information, what all’s included with Office 365 and some tips and tricks to consider while making a decision about how you’re going to approach it. Slides are available from Slide Share here:

Additionally, I spoke on the topic of one of the more dear topics that I deal with on a regular basis – “Authentication, Authorization and Identity – it’s more than meets the eye.” This topic covers the core background of AuthN, AuthZ and ID and provides advice on things to consider when planning out your environment. The slides for this session are available here:

Thanks to all that were able to attend – you all make these events incredibly worthwhile to speakers looking to share knowledge.
