Speaking at the Prairie Dev Con, in November

Prairie Dev Con logoI will be doing a session on  SharePoint 2010 workflows at the Prairie Dev Con in Winnipeg this fall. The event takes place at the Viscount Gort Hotel on November 21 and 22. This session will feature part of the presentation I did earlier this year, but will focus on and delve deeper into workflows. Be sure to check it out to see how to develop a complete workflow with custom forms using Visual Studio 2010 (without InfoPath). Also make sure you check out their website and get your tickets while the early bird offer is still on. Hope to see you there!

Slide deck and demos from yesterdays presentation

Thanks to everyone who showed up at yesterdays event. This was my first public presentation and based on the feedback I guess I did good. I hope you enjoyed the content, and that you learned something in the process. I’ll be out of the country for the next 2 weeks, but you’re welcome to tweet/email me questions and comments if you have any. I’ll try and get back to you as soon as I can.

You can find the slides from my presentation at the bottom of this post, along with the Visual Studio solutions for the three demos that I did. These are the actual demos that I created during the presentation, complete with grammar mistakes and everything, so you should be looking at the same thing that you saw then. You’ll need a dev machine setup with SharePoint 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 to be able to try these out.

As a last note, I should give credit where credit is due. The fourth slide in my presentation was borrowed from Eric ShuppsTechEd 2010 presentation. Continue reading

Speaking at the Regina Technology Community, on May 11th

I will be doing a presentation on SharePoint 2010 development for the Regina Technology Community. This event is free to anyone who wants to attend, and there will be food, so make sure you sign up if you’re interested. This is an entry level presentation, so I’m expecting most people haven’t worked on SharePoint and will gear the presentation as such. If you have previous SharePoint experience you may find some of the examples and topics to be pretty basic (although you’re still welcome to participate, of course). Continue reading

Speaking at the Solvera PDC 2011, on March 19th

Solvera PDC 2011

In 2009 Solvera Solutions started a biennial Professional Development Conference for it’s employees. On March 18th and 19th the event returns for it’s second iteration. This year I will be doing a presentation about development for SharePoint 2010. Unfortunately you can not attend unless you are a Solvera employee, but I wanted to mark the occasion because it’s my first foray into speaking about SharePoint. At a whooping 2 hours and 45 minutes, expect there to be a lot of information in this session. Continue reading
