SharePoint for DBAs Part 1 at SALSSA

Last night I presented a session titled SharePoint for DBAs Part 1 at the San Antonio League of SQL Server Administrators (www.SALSSA.com). There was a great group of 10 Microsoft SQL Professionals attending who gave me great feedback and interaction during and after the presentation. I’ve agreed to do a follow up, Part 2, sometime in the future. Most of the presentation was demo which I may record seperately and upload to YouTube, but the slides are available from Slide

Best SharePoint Conference Ever! #SPC11

Walking around Disneyland with my friend Michael Doyle last night, I said to him, “Could this day get any better?” and I think we really did both feel that way. Michael has had two books published within weeks of each other, one of them Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 Inside Out we were co-authors on. We had a book signing event, heard great sessions, I passed another certification test, met lots of old friends and new ones and spent 4 hours

SQL Master Data Services at SALSSA

I attended a San Antonio League of SQL Server Administrators (SALSSA) meeting last night. The presentation was on SQL Server Master Data Services which are a feature of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, but kind of hidden. The presenter, Garrett Edmondson, specializes in Business Intelligence using the Kimball Methodology and works for a small group doing R&D for Tribune in San Antonio. It was clear from his presentation that there is one book on MDS and it’s a must read

SharePoint Conference 2011 is going to Disneyland

I wonder how many people caught the Live Chat on the Microsoft SharePoint Team’s Facebook page today. I missed the chat but noticed in the transcript some interesting details. First of all, Microsoft is renting Disneyland for a SharePoint Conference Party on the Tuesday night of the event. Only makes sense being in Anaheim, right? Other than that, I didn’t see much new in the chat. Eric kind of dodged a question by Rick Taylor about mobile, one about Skype
