For those of you looking for the slides for my presentation at devLink here is the link: http://cid-8e2654c5f01e6069.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Presentations/Webpart%20Development.pptx. Here is the code samples: http://cid-8e2654c5f01e6069.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/CodeSamples.
So most of you guys know I’m more of an alternative/rock type person. I don’t enjoy country music much. It’s just not my thing that I will go and seek out. I don’t fully hate most of it. In fact Johnny Cash is a huge exception to the matter. We went to a bar called Tootsie’s, but it really wasn’t my thing per se. Mainly due to the huge amount of people and the loud country music. I did enjoy the experience, because it was really different than what I normally end up doing. I actually got to hang out with live human beings rather than my computer and a hotel room or electronic avatars. I got to get to know Cathy Dew and see Dan Usher once more. I met a really cool guy from Indiana named Kevin who works with SharePoint (did you ever get your SSP issue resolved?). I saw Rob Foster for maybe the second time ever. I spent some time with him when he came to New Jersey last year when I first started with B&R he’s a really neat guy. Pretty laid back. Eric Shupps, the SharePoint Cowboy, is another person I got to spend some more time with. He actually took his hat off, which was kind of cool. No we did not exchange hats. Over my dead body will anyone other than myself wear my Cardinal’s hat…Anyway, despite looking like I was stressed and having a bad time I really had a good time. The best I can have for this particular time of the year. Next time though I am buying ear plugs or at least some type of country music to alternative rock convertor. If anyone is thinking about attending the conference next year go to devLink if you can swing it. It’s a cheaper conference that feels almost like a major conference. There was some good content definitely. That concludes my last speaking engagement for this year other than the Virtual UG this week…I am done with events and SPS, except for planning. I will most definitely attend some events next year, but SPS KC and moving is going to consume every waking month for the next few months. Anyway I hope that you guys have a good weekend and I will catch you another time.
