SharePoint Conference 2009 -Las Vegas

So, I’m sitting here on the plane on my way to the big SharePoint Conference in Vegas. I thought I would take a minute to write a quick blog post about everything that has been going on lately with me.

So first off, back in September I was lucky enough to give my Branding 101 session at sharePoint Saturday New York City. Boy that was a fun trip. I had a blast taking my mother with me early for her first visit to one of my favorite cities.

We took in the sites and even managed to see Wicked and Mamma Mia and fit in some shopping during our visit.

Then it was time for SharePoint Saturday. I had a great session, thanks to everyone who attended. I’m going to try later today to post my session slides as well. I had a great time in NYC and even made some new friends.

After my NYC trip I have been at home busy trying to get ready to learn as much about SharePoint 2010 as I can. This involved clearing my plate of many tasks I hadn’t yet completed.

Next my focus turned to the Birmingham SharePoint community. I have been working on building more community spirit. In this vein, I spoke along with Lori Gowin and Laura Rogers at the TechBirmingham TechMixwr University this past week. We got to build more interest in the Bham SPUG just by participating and getting the opportunity to meet new people.

At this event I gave my SharePoint Branding 101 talk, this one is so popular. I also gave a session on SharePoint search concepts.

Later that evening it was the Bham SPUG’s first birthday! This last year has really flown by. I am so lucky to have a great support system in Lori and Laura. Also to have the support of New Horizons as our venue sponsor. Thanks to everyone who has spoken, helped spread the word, or participated in our little SPUG!!

So as you can see the last couple of months have been busy. Just the way I like them. Up next for me is lots of 2010 learning, some writing, and some more travelling. This next week is Las Vegas for the big conference.

If you will be there I would love to meet you! If you aren’t there, you can keep up with all the happenings at: EndUserSharePoint. I will be live blogging along with plenty of other people so you can feel like you are there with us. Plus the keynote on Monday morning will be livestreamed by Microsoft.

Check out all the excitement and look for lots of great 2010 blogs to come out this week from all the SharePoint MVPs. And who knows maybe even from those of us in the Birmingham community 😉
