Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog
This weekend rocked, but it was also very stressful.  I started to think about what I want to do with my career.  I have to admit that where I want to go is at least to try to obtain MVP Status.  I have to want it enough and head myself in the right direction.  I need to stop sitting back and assuming what I am doing is working out.  So you guys are going to see some changes happening soon.  I have to thank a lot of people for helping me out, especially Sahil Malik and David Isserman.  They spoke to me on the phone about fighting for what I want basically.  That is what I need to do.  I need to put all the low self esteem issues aside.  I need to fight for what I want.  I need to push my limits to as far as they can go to become the person I want to be.  That is what you will see in the next few months.  I am going to stop moping around about certain things in life and start changing them like 23 year old Becky Isserman.  I am going to walk out everyday and I am going to try and think of what I can do to further my career and I am going to also play a lot more RockBand.
So that is settled now let's talk about my presentation.  It was not the best, because I was nervous and I am out of practice.  I forgot to say my name and mention my speaking topic.  However, everyone seemed really interested in the tool I created, aside from the fact that the security part was not fully functional and some error testing.  I promised that I will add a tool to look up user information and integrate the user control within the Windows Application in the next few months.  It may not happen right away, but I promise I will try to get this added when I have the time.  Passover is coming up and I am going to be doing a lot of cooking and I am going to work on the book some more this week.  I also promised Sahil that I would work on SPRSS.  I think it's an interesting tool and that I can put my skills to good use.  After all I am a real code monkey now, so I need to hone those skills a littl more.
Btw, for all of you who actually read my blog I really appreciate you and thank you for making me feel like I am doing something to help.  Continue to post comments and ask questions.  I really enjoy any feedback.

Thanks for making the trip to St. Louis to share your knowledge, Becky. I could tell you were nervous at first, but it looked like you gained confidence pretty quickly when the group could tell that you obviously knew what you were talking about.

Thanks man. I really appreciate that. I think every time I get a little better than the last. I am hoping that I can get back to the confidence I had when I was doing Dale Carnegie a few years ago.
