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.

I haven’t touched an Apple Machine since high school really.  I never really wanted to buy one until recently.  I have two Apple devices and I wanted to know how to build a mobile application.  I have a strong development background in C++ and PHP as my foundation in college, so I thought why not come up with a way to integrate SharePoint 2010 and iOS.

I sat on my hands for about 2 months debating what I wanted to get specwise and landed on a MB Air with 8 gb of RAM a core i7 proc and 512gb SSD.  I finally got it a couple days after the 2013 release and thought why not work with the mobile experience in 2013.  I built this awesome PC machine I can throw up a decent size farm and test the mobile experience at home.   I just happen to have a wp7 and an iPad 1…Now all I need is a windows tablet and I have my trusty iPhone.  I want to do a comparison with oData/oAuth/REST and wp7 vs. iPhone plus tablets with Windows vs. iOS. 

So now I get to do throw up a farm write a bunch of blog posts on my experience plus test the mobile experience.  For me the mobile experience is like this undiscovered country.  I get to explore new stuff in an area I am excited about.  Hopefully, in the upcoming months I will recharge and restore the happiness that I feel I am losing building the same stuff over and over again.
