Upcoming Presentation – LightSwitch at SilverlightNYC

I will be giving yet another LightSwitch and Extensions session at the NYC WPF & Silverlight meetup on Thursday October 13, 2011

CodeCampNYC 2011 was great.

LightSwitch CodeCampNYC (Thanks to Martin Zietarski)

Saturday October 1st was a great day for me.  It was my first time speaking at a code camp and it was very exciting.     It was great to see familiar faces from the local WPF and Silverlight meetup as well as seeing Rich Dudley, ComponentOne’s evangelist.

The session went very well.  I had a number of great questions from the attendees.   As is the case in many sessions on new topics, a number of people had never seen nor used the product and so here I was targeting a developer audience for a product meant to an information worker or a junior developer.  I ended up given a 20 minute product overview and wrote a simple application on the fly before demonstrating the extensibility options.  All in the all the session was very good.

At the speaker dinner party, I was asked about the possibility of giving the same or similar talk at two other local community groups in the next few months, so if you missed it and are interested, stay tuned.

PowerShell for Sharepoint – Part 1

On Wednesday September 21, 2011 I gave a presentation to a tech hungry group of SharePoint professionals at theNYC SharePoint Developers User Group at Microsoft’s NYC office in midtown NYC (

I had planned on giving a 2 part session consisting of an introduction to PowerShell followed by PowerShell application for the SharePoint professionals.     This all changed when I surveyed the group’s familiarity with PowerShell.  I decided to provide more details on PowerShell to give everyone solid foundation.    At the same time, the group almost unanimously asked for a follow-up session as there was not enought time to cover both topics in the same session.

As I write this, I received an invitation from the Kathryn and Ryan to return for a follow-up session.    I will post the details when it’s available.

Here’s a link to the slides:
