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.

I will be speaking at the St. Louis .Net User Group About Silverlight on Monday, October 27th at 6 pm.  Like the Kansas City .Net User Group they start at 5:30, but it looks like they go until 7:30.  It looks like the group holds office at Three city Place Suite 1100 in Creve Coeur, Missouri.  Here is my bio and abstract:

The Dazzling World of Silverlight using XAML and Expression Blend
Silverlight is the shiny new tool that both Developers and Designers can use in harmony. In Expression Studio Designers can create Silverlight layouts without affecting the code behind files. In Visual Studio 2008 Developers can access the layout files that designers created and add code events. In this session we will discuss the tools involved to develop Silverlight Applications. We will dive into some XAML Code and Expression Blend tutorials that will leaving you with a taste to create more rich applications for the web.

Becky Isserman has been a SharePoint Developer, since 2005 when she went through the Portal University with Levi, Ray, and Shoup in Springfield, IL. She is an Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and a Microsoft Certified Application Developer (MCAD). She has been a web designer/developer since she was fifteen hand coding HTML 3.0 websites in NotePad. She enjoys working with SharePoint 2007, because she can perform the roles of administrator, developer, designer, and architect. She has presented at five code camps, two conferences, and three user groups in 2008. She currently lives in Olathe, Kansas for B&R Solutions. She lives with her two cats, Gambit and Rogue, plus her boyfriend, Johnny. If you would like to contact her you can e-mail her at or fill out the contact form at her blog

If anyone in St. Louis wants to get together and play some Rockband or meet up I think I'm going to try and work from my friend Leah's house through Thursday.  However, if anyone wants to hang out for dinner she has claimed me for most dinners, especially Wednesday which is her 25th birthday.

Oddly, we are looking to experiment with just this topic for a client right now. The idea is to have a silverlight app that will read from a SP list to display a slider bar timeline that when a year is selected will then read the articles from another SP list and display the historical articles for that year. We have implemented it with a DataView Web part, but we want to make it look much snazzier. They are currently using Flash and no one seems to know how to get Flash to pass a web part parameter to the DV web part or have it reset the query string in the browser.
