SharePoint Saturday Wrapup… Baltimore, Atlanta and Dayton

The past couple of months have been somewhat of a blur – in a good way for the most part, outside of the derecho that Scott Hoag and I drove through on the way to SharePoint Saturday Dayton.

From an adventure that started on 11 May 2012 in Baltimore at the speakers dinner catching up with Eric Harlan and Cathy Dew to venturing up to Toronto, Canada for the SharePoint Summit to hang with Todd Klindt and Lori Gowin to coming back to head to SharePoint Saturday Atlanta to see Cathy again as well as a host of others to include such wonderful hosts (Ron Jones, Dan Attis, and Matt Ranlett). From there a little of breather was had traveling to Dayton, OH with Scott to see such fine hosts to include Stacy Deere, Stephanie Donahue, and Sean McDonough, whilst bumping into the likes of Virgil Carroll, John Ferringer, and Enrique Lima.

So enough talk and call outs, bring forth the slides! 😉

SharePoint Saturday Baltimore

I’ve been accepted to speak at SharePoint Saturday Baltimore on 25 July 2009.  I’ll be giving a talk on the basics of authentication in the context of SharePoint Services platform, with the title of the topic aptly, “Why can’t I access the portal? SharePoint Authentication 101”.

More often than not recently at least I’ve found that it tends to be the surrounding infrastructure that is the true culprit causing my end users to not be able to authenticate.  In this talk I’ll be going into the basics of good ole authentication, different authentication methods and some basic troubleshooting tactics.
