DevConnections 2013 Recap

DevConnections 2013 Recap

DevConnections 2013 was an amazing conference, as it has in all years past. The attendees are always hyper-engaged and come with tons of questions. As a presenter, nothing makes me happier than helping people understand the concepts I am covering better than when they walked into my sessions.  Thanks to Scot Hillier for being an amazing track chair and moderating the panel on Tuesday afternoon. During DevConnections I did 3 sessions (2 of which were recorded) and a panel session…

A summer of fun & SharePoint

A summer of fun & SharePoint

I am sitting in the Toronto City Airport after speaking at #SPSToronto yesterday and realized that I hadn’t posted anything about my upcoming talks. Yesterday was a day of BI.

The whole day built nicely and the attendees grew in numbers from session to session. All it all it was a great collaborative…
