Hello World!!!

It’s about time I picked up on my blogging, conference speaking and the community engagement. Last year and half, I haven’t been very active for many reasons – these are not excuses, but it’s just that I had to get my priorities sorted.

First off – last year I joined Avanade Australia in the Brisbane office as a Senior SharePoint Consultant and my priority at the time was to settle down in the company.

Social Media Fallout

Hola! I seemed to have disappeared! Well, to be honest I am very active on the Social Network (Twitter, Facebook) interacting with friends and followers and sharing links and resources. However, I have come to realize that not everyone is on Twitter just yet, similar to not everyone subscribe to/read RSS Feeds just like people were not into email newsletters or rather emails few years ago.

Bangalore SharePoint Ignite

At the time of writing this post day 4 of Bangalore Ignite had concluded and I had finished writing some PowerShell posts. These will go live in the days to come, when I will be on holidays with my family.

Earlier this week I had indicated on twitter, that Ignite training is not under NDA and it was great to share the information with everyone. Having said that I started taking notes and some intermittent tweets went out, however there was an information overload (for good) that I ended up with shorthand notes that I only can understand! I am hoping that I will remember these when I start compiling them and publish them early next year (given that this is the last month of the year and I am going to be on holidays).

It was finally showcased with the Beta2 build at the keynote and subsequent sessions.

Blog Posting Hiccups

Last night I could not post on this blog using Windows Live Writer. Now trying to post using ScribeFire.

Initially I could not post using ScribeFire either. So I did the same hack to .htaccess file as blogged earlier.

I can now post using ScribeFire. Tonight will check if WLW works 🙂

Once this issue is sorted, I will start posting Office 2010 Technical Preview posts. Stay tuned.
