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.

So above is the really generic information and now I'm going to explain why you guys need to come to this meeting.  Brian is awesome and smart and it's his first talk.  He needs people to root him on.  He's talking about SQL Server 2008 and Office Systems.  Some stuff about Reporting Services and some stuff about SharePoint.  It will be good content for those of you looking to move from 05 to 08.  Not convinced yet?

Also if you want to plan ahead we have a great talk next month about SharePoint Patches by the infamous JD Wade from St. Louis.  The next month after WSS MVP, Darrin Bishop will be talking about ECM...That should about cover the year.  I hope to see all you Kansas and Missouri Devs.
