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.
Back in June I kind of re-launched this blog and had promised to giveaway a book back then! Duh! Never happened… no excuses…. I just could not do it….
So here I am again
I am going to be giving away a book by way of draw on September 15 2010. This will be a SharePoint 2010 book for sure! All I ask of you to make it easier for me to draw your name is sign up for the newsletter here – that’s it!
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.
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).
Wow! What a conference it has been. I am was at Las Vegas airport, returning back to Brisbane from Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2009, when I started writing this post. It has taken me a while to get it done.
It has been a great conference with around 8000 people at the conference from over 43 countries! The main focus of this conference was the next version of SharePoint – 2010. It was finally showcased with the Beta2 build at the keynote and subsequent sessions. This post marks the beginning of a series of recap posts of my time at the conference, which far by was the best one I have attended till date.
