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.

Inside the Index and Search Engines: Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (PRO-Developer) Review
i told my current boss to buy this book, because it looked to be the only SharePoint Search book on Amazon. It covers the basics, such as setting up content sources, crawling, adding scopes, etc... Honestly, I know a lot of that stuff from experimentation and working with SPS 2003. I didn't really care so much for anything, but Chapter 8. To be honest I am not a book reader. I am a book skimmer. I pretty much go into the index or the Table of Contents and get to the pieces that I need for the task ......

Looking for Panelists for the KC Office Geeks
I am trying to start up a panel where a bunch of SharePoint experts (maybe 5 or 6) sit in front of the KC Office Geeks and answer questions members ask.

Creating Dynamic Controls with Javascript
I was working on a search hack and needed the session state from ASP .Net controls and the ids from html controls using this hack: So I came up with a creative solution. I would add the html controls in the background.

How I got Started Programming
One of the cooler people I know, Lee Brandt, tagged me in this blog post: So here goes... How old were you when you started programming? That is questionable...I started building Websites in HTML on AOLPress, HotDog, and Notepad when I was 15 years old. If you don't count HTML, then I was 16. I wrote a "Hello World" Program on my TI-82 Graphing Calculator in 10th grade. What was your first language? HTML/Graphing Calculator ......

Where is my search assembly?
I am hacking the Advanced Search Form, so I realize each scope has an id. I want to get the id that corresponds to my scopes in a drop down list (later on a drop down list checkbox perhaps). So I add the proper assemblies to my test asp .net page and all works well. Then I copy my control into my SharePoint Test Site User Controls area...It states that I am missing an assembly when I load the page...I check the web .config and sure enough it is missing this reference tag in the <assemblies> ......
