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.

Hey guys just a friendly reminder submissions are still open until Tuesday, April 30th for SharePoint Saturday New York City on Saturday, July 27th, 2013.  Rumor has it Tasha Scott and myself will be wearing centurion hats this year.

Some may ask what are we looking for this year.  I will say everything.  People submit on Logistics, IT Pro, IT Pro Advanced, Development, Development Advanced, End User, and Special Interest.  We get topics from search to how to build apps in 2013.  We are looking for full submissions from anyone in the world, however lightning talks are for n00b speakers who are locals.  What this means is that if you have never spoken at an event or user group and you live within the NYC Metro Area you can submit a 7 minute talk and chances are good that you will get into the event to speak.  You can cut your teeth at this event and eventually this will lead you down the slippery slope of more SharePoint Saturdays.

So basically what am I stating in this blog post kids?  I think you should all submit, despite thinking that you might not get into the event it’s a blind vote.  Everyone has a chance to get there submission selected or denied.  If I were you I wouldn’t live with regret and go to this website to submit to SharePoint Saturday NYC:

If you guys still are not convinced to submit my first event was MOSS Camp St. Louis in 2008.  I was about 26 years old and nervous.  I was speaking on a windows application I wrote for admins to quickly add a bunch of people in batch to security, plus read active directory users in groups, plus create a bunch of SharePoint Sites.  My dad and Paul Schaeflein were in the session.  It wasn’t amazing, but look where I am now.  I spoke at SharePoint Conference, a couple Best Practices Conferences, The Expert’s Conference a few times, SP Tech Con, several SharePoint Saturdays and Code Camps.  It’s worth a shot no matter who you are in this world.  If you know something about SharePoint and you think you can talk about it at an event you should fill out the form and write an abstract.  It’s a really great confidence builder plus it leads to a lot of great things in the long run.  If you have any questions contact me or the form on this site.  You can run ideas off of me if you don’t feel comfortable submitting.  I hope to see you at the event in July!

I remember that MOSS Camp! Seems like forever ago. You had the unfortunate circumstance to talk about security with a guy in the audience who wrote a security management tool. 😊 But you did great!
