Well, I’m back from SharePointFest Denver – for the record, red eye flights suck – and I want to thank the SharePointFest team for a job well done. It was a fun conference, as it was last year, and a great excuse for me to spend a few days in advance with my two brothers and their families. As always it’s great to catch up with SharePointilist friends of old and to meet new ones.
I’m looking forward to SharePointFest Chicago in September. In Chicago, Kyle Schaeffer (@kyleschaeffer) and I will be reprising the workshop we did earlier this year at the SharePoint Conference .ORG called SharePoint Design Essentials. Kyle is a design and branding superstar and I’m honored to share the podium with him. I’ll also be doing the same two regular sessions I did in Denver: Flying in the Cloud: New Ways to Develop for SharePoint and SharePoint Solutions with SPServices. Maybe better the second time?
I want to thank everyone who came to my two half-day workshops and two regular sessions at SharePointFest Denver this week. I hope you all enjoyed the sessions, and feel free to follow up with me if you have any questions about what we covered.
I’ve posted the slides for A jQuery Primer for SharePoint and Flying in the Cloud: New Ways to Develop for SharePoint on SlideShare. Richard Harbridge (@rharbridge) convinced me of the merits of a SlideShare subscription and in a cool twist, the SharePointfest Denver – A jQuery Primer for SharePoint slides were featured on the SlideShare home page yesterday and today. Now that’s a nice welcome to a Web site subscription.

For those of you who’d like to view the slides right here, they are embedded below.
There are two WSPs which contain the demo sites I used across the sessions. Both WSPs are contained in this ZIP file: SharePointFest Denver 2012. Some people have issues when they try to instantiate solutions like this in their environment, most often due to an activated features mismatch. Let me know if you have problems, and perhaps we can work through them.
