Architecture Planning

Baltimore SharePoint User's Group – 21 May 2009

This past Thursday, I drove up to the Baltimore SharePoint User’s Group to present on the topic of “Designing Logical Architectures and Site Taxonomies.” It was a decent drive up the BW Parkway from Northern Virginia, chatting with Eric Harlan and a few others on the way up – apparently there were folks heading for the beach already on Thursday afternoon for the Memorial Day weekend, so the drive lasted a little longer than anticipated (about 2 hours).

The presentation was well received by the group as well as lively with questions. Eric Harlan, Shadeed Eleazer and I headed off to the Bone Fish Grill afterward to chat about life, SharePoint and SharePoint Saturday Baltimore (25 July 2009).

Overall, a successful trip up to Baltimore!
