The presentation material from my session ‘Using the new Visual Studio 2012 for SharePoint 2010 development’ for the NYC Visual Studio User Group (Nov 27 2012) can be downloaded from here ( NYCVSUG-VS2012-SP2010DEV.pdf).
Thu, 01 Nov 2012 12:58:07 GMTI am looking forward to checking out the new SharePoint 2013 features hosted within a CloudShare sandbox. CloudShare provides various SharePoint hosted environments 'on tap' for faster deployment and testing - a free trial is well worth exploring.

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.

Last Saturday (Jun 25th) I had presented at the SharePoint Saturday India Online event (#SPSINDIA). My presentation was on ‘SharePoint 2010 Development with Visual Studio 2010’. It was well attended (20+) and went quite fast – the original content of ~90 mins (from a prior Code Camp) had to be pruned down to 60 mins.

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.

Well over a year has passed since I last posted here. Work and other obligations put me elsewhere. Let’s hope any absence in the future is not that long.
I received the Microsoft MVP Award for SharePoint Workspace:Architecture earlier this year (the 4th one since 2008). More details here - http://bit.ly/b3if5s

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.
Groove has evolved considerably over the years (since '01) and works well with other collaborative platforms, especially SharePoint. The new & upcoming version of Groove will be SharePoint WorkSpace 2010 – find out more about it at the Office 2010 Beta website.
