Thank You SPSNYC!

This past Saturday I had the honor of speaking at the 10th annual SharePoint Saturday New York City. It was a great event and I really enjoyed presenting on Getting the Most out of SharePoint Patterns and Practices (Slides can be found below).

Due to some kind of crazy weather in NYC, I had all sorts of trouble getting there. My non-stop, 2.5 hour flight from Indianapolis turned into 4 different flights (including one that just sat on the runway for 2 hours before unloading us) and took 26 hours. I ended up in Charlotte, NC (2 weeks early!) and had to scramble to make it to NYC on time. I showed up about 40 minutes before my session but I had no luggage.

I gave my talk wearing shorts and a random NC shirt I bought in the airport and everyone was very cool about it. In fact, the talk went very well. People seemed genuinely very interested in PnP and a lot of great questions were asked. I was able to talk to some of the attendees afterwards and while they had heard about some portions of PnP, there were several things that were new (and exciting) to them. So… mission accomplished!

I flew from NYC to Seattle for some meetings and just got home yesterday. I was reunited with my bag just in time to pay an additional bag check fee to bring it home (Bags normally take 6 days, right?). Oh well, things worked out pretty well in the end and they could have been far worse.

The SPSNYC event, however, was very well done. Great organizers, speakers, vendors, and attendees all in a cool location and all for free. If you missed it this year, don’t make the same mistake in 2019! Thank you to everyone that came out!
