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.

For those of you guys in the area the 1st Hartford Code Camp is Saturday from 9 am to 5pm at New Horizons Learning Center in Bloomfield, CT.  I will be there and speaking about basics in SharePoint Development.  Here is the link for the Code Camp to sign up:

I'm pretty excited, because this is my first trip to New England.  I decided to fly into Hartford around 11 am on Thursday and rent a car, so that I could drive all the way up to Bar Harbor, Maine and back down again on Friday.  It will be jam packed with awesome.  I am staying at a B&B in the area called Anne's White Columns, because I wanted the full experience.  I am not planning anything, except for where I am staying.  I will stop along the way at anything that looks really cool.  So far from what I have looked at via Frommer's there is a lot of awesome on the way up.  On Friday on my descent from Maine I will be stopping in Nashua, NH to visit some old World of Warcraft buddies.  Then on Saturday the code camp will take up most of my time.  If I am still up for it I am either going to drive into Boston or Providence after I check into the hotel by BDL.  That should pretty much conclude my stay.  I am hoping to take a ton of pictures and get a ton of great experiences. 

In planning this trip I made a pact with myself.  Next summer I am going to fly into England and travel Europe.  I am going to take the train all over western and northern with only a Frommer's Guide.  I have been thinking about doing this for several years.  I figure next summer is perfect, because my boyfriend should be graduating around May.  I keep reading Joel Oleson's Blog about his travels and it just makes me sad.  I have been to Israel.  It was a beautiful trip, but I really don't count it.  There is a program called Birthright Israel for Jewish people between the ages of 18 and 26.  It was the most incredible experience in my life.  I saw the Kotel (Western Wall), Tzipori (a really cool town where they make homemade candles that has a rich story related to the Kabbalah), almost fell off of Masadah, and I hiked this really cool area with Red Rocks.  I have a good passport until November 2010.  Hopefully, from next year on I can try and hit a new country every year or more if my plan goes well.  Anyway, I promise to post pictures from my trip and the code camp.  My camera is ready for action.  Expect another post sometime early next week.
