First, SharePoint Saturday New Orleans 2011 has opened registration and placed the session list online. If you’re interested in SharePoint at all this is a must attend event. The sessions span all areas of SharePoint including project management, end users/power users tools, administration, architecture, development and more.
Secondly, I will be presenting “Developing Custom Web Parts”. No SharePoint experience required but I am recommending ASP.NET experience if you attend. Here’s the description I sent in:
Web parts are a logical starting point for ASP.NET developers to begin their journey into SharePoint. This session focuses on the ins and outs of web part development as well as web part and SharePoint development best practices. Code examples will use C#.
This Saturday (August 14th) LSU will be hosting SQL Saturday #28. The all day event will feature a number of great sessions and speakers. If you’re a technology professional in the Baton Rouge area, this event is a must. Along with the speakers and sessions, there will be plenty of local technology professionals attending (close to 600 registered attendees) which should make it a great event for networking.
The local user groups will also have a table setup to help spread the word. If you’re interested in getting involved with the .NET, SQL, or SharePoint user groups, please stop in and say hello. I’ll probably spend most of the day at the table talking up the New Orleans SharePoint User Group.
Looks like some big names in web development will be speaking in New Orleans on April 24–25. The guys from An Event Apart are going to be holding a 2 day conference in the Riverside Hilton.
