Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

So I've been in San Francisco for a few days to kind of write about some things I've done and seen.  I wanted to kind of just write this out so I can process some of it while it's happening.  I've met some really cool people so far one person, Barb, in particular seems pretty cool and really nice.  Just the type of person you can sit with and kind of have a decent discussion.  Really laid back incredibly smart and awesome.  Not overly crazy.  The other person I met who is insane, but I like is Neville Atkins.  He's so intelligent.  He reminds me of my boyfriend, Johnny.  Every five seconds he has something insanely brilliant to say.  I spent dinner today with Dux Raymond Sy, Neville, and Barb (and one of Dux's friends).  It was a group of people I could hang out with on a daily basis.  A pretty good mix.  Dux has been pretty cool this week introducing me to a lot of different cuisine.  Stuff you just don't get in Kansas City or St. Louis that often.  Intellectually and foodwise it has been a really good time.  I met a few other people, one in particular that struck me as really cool was John Ross.  He also seemed very intelligent and I kind of got him in trouble for talking to much at the sponsor hall.  Of course I got to hang out a bit wiht Michael Lotter and all the B&R guys (I finally met Jay Medero).  I'm pretty picky and kind of elitist with who I hang out with at these conferences.  I know it's kind of a jerk thing to say, but I'm not the type of person who likes to surround themself with people.  In fact I didn't really walk into the sponsor hall, because to me it just felt like too many people.  I went in once did a circuit left, then came back a few more times.  I kind of had to push myself a little bit and if I had not I would have never talked to John.  The other thing is I'm very analytical of what I say to people later on.  Some people it's just easier for me to get along with than others.  It's just who I am.   Anyway I feel a little sick again and I really need sleep, but all in all it was a pretty big day.  I had a lot of fun.  I hope that tommorow is as good as today.
