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.

Why is it important you attend the Best Practices Practices Conference?  I can’t vouch for everyone, but I think my sessions will be great (and all the other speaker’s sessions as well).  One of them is something I’ve been working on in concept for at least 6 months.  This session is called Building A Rich Media Application in Silverlight.  The second I saw the tools for webcam and video integration I thought how can we incorporate this into SharePoint?  How cool would it be if you could record a netcast within SharePoint?  I’m actually going to talk about the best practices for building an application.  Why is the client object model better getting your media from Silverlight input devices than WCF?  What tools do you get out of the box that will help you integrate video with Silverlight?  Why are the webcam tools practical in SharePoint application?  These are just a few questions I will answer through the course of the presentation.

But wait there is more…

You get a whole other presentation for price of one on Mopping Up Bad Code: A Migration that Should Have Never Happened.  This presentation is based off of a migration project I had last year.  You get to see what was done initially to the environment, what problems occurred in the environment, and what I did to fix the environment.

Oh yeah and then there are 48 more sessions you may get as a bonus as well.  So basically if you have the ability to clone yourself you could potentially attend 50 sessions.  Unfortunately, you have to buy enough tickets for each clone, but the knowledge transfer bonus afterwards may work out to your advantage.  Here is the linkage for the sessions, speakers, and ticket buying:

As a shameless plug please sign up to live blog.  See my last post for the linkage.  Hopefully I will see you at the conference!  Thus concludes this episode of the Life of Becky.  Tune in later for possible code snippets and other items in the next post.
