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

So as you can see this blog has not been the best in the world lately.  Life changes and burn out are killing me lately.  Don’t get me wrong I love my job.  I love writing things in Visual Studio, in fact this week I got to work with MVC3 for the first time ever.  I am completely hooked on MVC3 and will further explore that in the upcoming months.  I have entertaining a completely different idea, because I think it would be fun and interesting.  The downside is it involves me buying an Apple computer.

I have been fighting buying a Macbook Pro for ages.  I love building Windows PCs from scratch.  I love knowing that I built the computer that I am using.  I guess it stems back from my grandparents teaching me that hard work leads to a more fulfilling accomplishment.  Anyway, I am not switching over to the darkside.  I just built myself a gaming PC (core i7 process, 24 gb of ram-32 when I RMA the last two chips, 4 hard drives – main being an SSD, and an NVIDIA GTX 570 card).  I just want to branch out and learn some new tech, so I figure if I have some spare time (which is like asking for a unicorn), I will start posting more about my new development.  Anyway, I am waiting for the WWDC and then I am going to decide on what flavor of Macbook Pro to purchase.  It turns out a Macbook Air won’t get me what I want programmatically the processor might not be quite up to par for hardcore development.  I wouldn’t want to limit myself to anything softcore right?

So check back here periodically or on twitter.  I’m sure I will post something about my endeavors.  In the meanwhile I am still working on my personal life and I am happy to say I have friends in the area.  For the first time in a very long time some of them are actually female.  As you all know my friends for the longest time were members of the SharePoint and .Net Community mainly and of the male breed.  So things are working out.  I still love every single day in NYC.  It is the first city I can 100% say I belong in.  If I have my way I will stay in the metro area for a long time.  Anyway, I hope you all are having a good time and goodnight.
