SharePoint Connections Las Vegas 2011 Wrap up

SharePoint Connections Las Vegas 2011 Wrap up

I just completed my 5 sessions, 3 of which I presented with my great friend Cornelius J. van Dyk, here at SharePoint Connections Las Vegas.  While here we received several pieces of great news:

1.) O’Reilly has green lit our book “SharePoint for Business Intelligence” which will be coming out in 2012 and will revolve around how you can solve business problems using SharePoint 2010, SQL Server 2012, & Visual Studio LightSwitch technologies for Business Intelligence.

2.) We will be doing our “SharePoint Disaster Avoidance for Large Scale Enterprises” post conference  and several other sessions for the SharePoint Connections Las Vegas show in March 2012

3.) Power was finally restored to my house in Nashua after more than 6 days!

I had almost 450 attendees across my 5 sessions and I sincerely hope that you all enjoyed the conference as my as I did.  As promised, here are links to my final decks:

SharePoint Logging & Debugging: The Troubleshooter’s Best Friend

SharePoint Performance: Best Practices from the Field

Battle Scarred But Still Standing: A SharePoint Administrator’s Tell All

Heavy Metal PowerPivot Redux

Human Workflow with Visio 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010

Heading home tonight and then back to the SharePoint Road Trip on Thursday to hit SharePoint Saturday Denver!

SharePoint Road Trips!

SharePoint Road Trips!

With the devastating storm that has hit New Hampshire over the weekend, there is no better time for a SharePoint Road Trip to start than today!  It was so bad up here that our city postponed Halloween Trick-or-treating until next Sunday.  Here are a couple of pictures of the devastation, just from our driveway:

Here is a quick list of where you can find me over the next 2 months.

After Las Vegas I head to Colorado to take part in SharePoint Saturday Denver (November 11-13), an amazing 2 day event (registration is open and there are still some seats available), where I will be presenting:

SharePoint Logging & Debugging: The Troubleshooter’s Best Friend (Friday)

SharePoint Performance: Best Practices from the Field (Saturday)

I am also planning on taking part in my first ShareSki as a part of SharePoint Saturday Denver!  I haven’t skied in Colorado in almost 10 years (East Coast skiing is nothing like Colorado sadly), but if you can’t find me on the slopes after my sessions, look for the guy in the full body cast by the fire drinking scotch

I am heading back to the Lone Star State to round out the calendar year of SharePoint where I will be speaking at the SASPUG meeting on December 15th and presenting Heavy Metal PowerPivot Redux, a session featuring the goodness of PowerPivot v1 and a preview of PowerPivot v2 and Power View.  Join us at Rackspace – Castle I-35 and Walzem starting at 530p. 

fireworks Happy New Years!

That will wrap my SharePoint Road Trip to a close.  I hope to see you at one of more of these great events.  The 2012 calendar of SharePoint events is already starting to fill up with amazing events so keep an eye out for an announcement later in the year about those dates.
