SharePoint Saturday New Orleans This Week!


Can’t wait!  SharePoint Saturday comes to my home town again!!  This Saturday, March 24th, is the third annual SharePoint Saturday in New Orleans.  I grew up down there, mostly in a small town on the west bank of New Orleans, called Luling.  Then, when I was about 13, my family moved to Baton Rouge, which is where my parents still live.  New Orleans is my favorite city, and I love sharing it with my SharePoint friends, especially those who have never been there.  There is a GREAT lineup of speakers for the event!

My session will be:

Advanced InfoPath: Working with User Profiles & the People Picker

When using the people picker control in an InfoPath form hosted in a SharePoint 2010 site, there are several advanced methods that can be implemented in order to use profile information to pre-populate fields. When your company’s user profile information is accurate, you can do some amazing things with that data. In this fast-paced session, Laura Rogers will go over several demonstrations of common scenarios in which information about people can be used in forms. This can be accomplished in not only the enterprise version of SharePoint, but in SharePoint Foundation.

It’s going to be a lot of fun!

My co-worker at Rackspace, Javier Barrera will also be presenting there.  His session is for SharePoint admins: SharePoint Search: A Look Behind the Curtain for System Administrators

Rackspace will also be a sponsor at the event, so look for us hanging out in our booth!
