Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks: June 12-13, 2010

imageI will be speaking at SharePoint Saturday Ozarks in Harrison on June 12, 2010.  This is an awesome event full of SharePoint and .NET goodness right in our own back yard. Mark Rackley, The SharePoint Hillbilly, did a great job organizing the event last year and I am sure this year will be even more awesome.  In fact I know it is since he has organized a float trip on the 13th.

I am sure there will be a SharePint at the Hotel Seville after the sessions since that is where everyone will be staying.  I haven’t decided if I will drive over that morning or go early and stay the night.

If you haven’t registered go here, now, I’ll wait, it opens in a new page, go register and then come back, go now, go, go.

Ok, now that you are registered we can talk about the sessions.  There are going to be some awesome SharePoint sessions and a few .NET sessions as well.  Mark, thanks for throwing us none SharePointer’s a bone.  I hope to hit a lot of the SharePoint sessions as I will be working on a project soon to port over an old application to SharePoint.

Check out all of the sessions to start planning your day and check out Mark’s blog for updates. He has some great post regarding the event, and some awesome pictures from last year too.

Here are the two session I will be presenting.

Make Deployment Easier with VS2010 Config File Transformations

In any development environment we have to code local, publish to test, and then have the tested code published to the production environment.  The process has built in gates to ensure that bad code doesn’t make it into production, but it causes a huge issue with keeping up with service and database connections in your configuration files.  Visual Studio 2010 introduces Web.config transformations as a way to solve this problem.  In this session we will look at the age old problems, discuss some solutions in use today and take a look at how Visual Studio 2010 has solved this problem for us today.

Planning Poker: Play Estimate, Plan

Planning Poker is a fun way to gather estimates for project task that levels experience, and helps document assumptions where everyone on the team has input.  In this session we will look at Planning Poker and then we are going to estimate some task using the techniques we have learned.    This session is educational as well as fun.  Yes, estimating can be fun.

Hope to see you there…
