FEDSPUG – 3 May 2012

After a quick jaunt up to New York City, Scott Hoag and I had the fortunate opportunity to present at the Federal SharePoint Users Group.  We shared insights and information on the topic of architectural design and process failures when moving to SharePoint 2010.

If you’ve been following us, we’ve been presenting quite a bit on the topic of Migration Pitfalls, this time around though from a different angle.

Overall, the presentation went well and we would like to extend our thanks once more to our hosts for allowing us the privilege to present.

If you missed the meeting and are interested in looking through slides, it can be done so below. Or if you’re like me, and you want a copy of the PowerPoint deck, you can find a link below.

Princeton SharePoint User Group

This evening, Scott Hoag and I presented a session on the Pitfalls of Migrating to SharePoint 2010 up in Princeton, New Jersey at the Princeton SharePoint User Group (PrincetonSUG, not PrincetonSPUG). If you live in the Princeton area, be sure to register on the Princeton SUG Meetup.com site so that you’re in the know about the presenters and meeting times.

Nevertheless, the topic – our tried and trusted fun with Migration Pitfalls with SharePoint 2010.  Interested? Check it out at your convenience 🙂

Thanks to Greg Hurlman, Jason Gallicchio, and Tom Daly for the invite – fun times and we’d love to come back sometime next year for another thrilling and exciting session… we’re not sure on what yet 🙂

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 🙂
