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 kind of busy lately in Omaha…I have a new gig that deals with FAST and SharePoint, but it’s government so I can’t really talk about it.  So far I’ve met a person in Omaha related to SharePoint name Kirk Hofer.  He is running the SPUG in Omaha.  It sounds like it should be fun.  Hopefully we can get a few SharePint’s going in the future.  I just did our first unofficial SharePint event in KC…We had about 5 people…We might do another next month to see if we can get more if we hold it in Kansas.  Btw, holding a SharePint down the street from Toby Keith is a very bad idea…I had no idea he was at KC Power and Light that Friday night.

We may have a venue for KC right now, but it’s looking like the cost for catering could be a little high.  We are going to decide by the end of the week where and when SPS KC will be held most likely.  I am still working on a venue for St. Louis, but it’s not quite as easy.  If anyone has any connections please feel free to divulge.  I am hoping that both events will be 10x more awesome than the even this past February.  Kevin Hughes has some awesome ideas and so does Brian Laird.  It’s good to have these guys on the team.  Kevin and Brian are immensely helpful in the user group and SPS KC planning while I am gone.  If you were at the last event expect a bigger venue and better planning.  I feel like last event was more of a learning experience, because it was the first event.

So I have halfway decided to drive to Vegas for SPC.  I finally bought my ticket to the event.  The drive is a whopping 19 hours from KC and 18 hours from Omaha.  I can stop in Denver.  Maybe I can say hi to a few people in the Denver area.  On the way back I think that I am going to stop by the Grand Canyon.  This is all really subjective though, because I know some people in Portland who want me to visit.  I also have a friend in Los Angeles.  I was hoping it would all work out somehow, but Portland and Los Angeles are in far opposite directions from where I live.  I have never been to Portland and I hear it’s a fun place to visit with a lot of cool hiking trails on some inactive volcanoes.  I should make a more definitive answer based on where I will be too clientwise.  I might still be in Omaha, which means time might not be as easy to take off.

My boyfriend wants to drive to New Jersey in September also.  I’m not sure I can take off the time.  It also sounds like a lot of fun.  If I can work it out I know it’s about a two day drive.  We did the Philadelphia part a lot in my teenage years.  The mountains sometimes are not so fun.  I found out something sad too… does not have a local office.  I was hoping that I could call them up and get a list of some good apartments in New Jersey.  It’s all manual it sounds like this time around…I was lucky last time we called this lady and she told us the first one she picked would be just right.  That is where we have lived for 2 years…I really hope that the next place is just as good.  Anyway I need to pack up my computer to bring it to Omaha, so I have something to game on.  Hopefully with a better computer I will blog more often.  I will catch you all later.
