Cronyism comes to the SharePoint Community

Tue, 08 May 2012 09:00:52 GMT

Last year, for SharePoint Saturday New York 2011 #SPSNYC , I had submitted 3 proposed developer sessions and all three were rejected. Apparently, there were 7 SharePoint governance sessions in a track that crowded out the developers but four of the governance sessions were presented by speakers from the event sponsors themselves (sort of buying your way into a voluntary community event and being paid for it).

This year a developer session was submitted by someone and was accepted -

But what the above agenda appears to be is a blatant plagiarism from a recent posting at the Microsoft MSDN site -

I am not going to speculate whether he was in a hurry or doesn’t know the subject but he is a friend of the organizers' of the SharePoint Saturday New York event. Also in this line-up: two sessions by two separate speakers with exceedingly similar content (I presume both friends of the organizers). Lastly, someone has been given two presentations sessions – one on Governance and ironically, the other on Community. He also happens to be employed by one of the event sponsor. For this SharePoint Saturday New York event #SPSNYC , there were over 250 sessions submitted by many and only 60 were accepted – the friend gets two.

SharePoint Saturday New York is not representative of the SharePoint community in NY - there are two regular SharePoint groups: the NY SharePoint Developers Group and the NY SharePoint Users Group and none of these local organizations are represented in the administration of the SharePoint Saturday NYC event.

I submitted six proposed sessions this year and all were rejected - had I believed in demagoguery and cronyism, I would have only submitted one.

4th Annual Hartford Code Camp - The Code Camp Manifesto lives on!

Mon, 20 Jun 2011 02:38:22 GMT

It is amazing that Thom Robbins' blog posting back in December 2004 laid the foundation of the Code Camps that have grown world-wide - there is at least one every week-end in some country (unscientific tweets stats sampling). This week end, we at the Connecticut .NET Developers Group had the 4th Annual Hartford Code Camp and it was well attended with 120+ attendees with ~30 sessions. Our thanks to the Speakers from near and far who made our event a success.

My thanks to Microsoft for the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award for 2010 - this is 3rd time in a row!  I have been active with the Groove and the CTDOTNET community for the past several years and it is always a pleasure to be helpful and work with other developers.
