My Upcoming Speaking Events

Oddly, I’ve had some people asking me where I’ll be speaking in the coming weeks and months, so I figured I’d do a post with the details.

imageFirst up is SharePoint conference .ORG coming up March 7-9 in Baltimore, MD. I’ll be doing a session entitled Enhancing the User Experience with jQuery. While the title may look familiar, I never do exactly the same stuff twice, and the session is pretty much all demo. You’ll see some of the great functionality available in SPServices, but also some new things I’ve been working on.

Though I’ve been talking about many of the bits and pieces I’ll cover here, including Data View Web Parts (DVWPs), JavaScript/jQuery, CSS, XSL, and the SharePoint Web Services using SPServices, I haven’t tied it all together in one session before except locally at BASPUG here in Boston. Based on the discussions that ensued during and after that session, we should have fun and good learnin’ in Dallas, as well.


At SharePoint Fest Denver, May 19-20, I’ll be reprising my Developing in SharePoint’s Middle Tier session. It’ll be a different crowd and the session in Denver will be unique, as most sessions are. Again, all demo, and I’ll have new things to show that I haven’t even thought up yet.

USPJ Academy - SharePoint TrainingFinally, you can hear me go on and on about these and other topics at the USPJ Academy anytime if you enroll as a student. I teach three courses there at the moment, and I’ll be starting a new session of my Enhancing the User Experience with jQuery course on February 28th. While a session that lasts an hour or two might cover some things, imagine a six week course with videos, forums, practical assignments and critiques to really understand this stuff. Come and join us!
