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.

The Guide of a MOSSLover Becky Isserman's Blog

So you are going to an event with 7,000 people that have similar interests to learn about a product that you have a vague idea about…I was excited prior to the event and nervous.  I had a very bad week before the event.  Every piece of technology that I brought with me to St. Louis broke.  I had little sleep trying to get my code done and my technology to the point I started out with that Monday.  Finally by Friday I was beat and hung out with my friends…On Saturday I went to Coders and everything after that was a huge blur…I think I boarded a plane to Vegas.  I’m pretty sure I saw Susan Lennon and a bunch of other people, but honestly I feel like every social gene in my body has been used up for a while.  I talked to sponsors, old friends, new friends, random people came up to me and said “So you are MOSSLover”…I got a lot of shwag and then it was over.  I realized it’s awesome to attend the major conferences, but I love Code Camps and SharePoint Saturdays or smaller conferences better.  I get to meet people and spend time with them.  I did have a good time, but it felt like I barely had a minute to spend to myself.  I didn’t drink, because if I had started drinking alcohol for one second I would have missed something cool.  I attended all but 3 sessions.  I woke up every single day and attended the first session of each day.  I’m still trying to process what I think about 2010, because it’s just insanely amazing and too much.  How cool is it that I no longer need a hojillion sticks of ram in my computer?  Isn’t it nice to load up the interface and have a nice Ajaxified prettiness?  Isn’t it nice to finally hear about WCF being the standard for webservices?

Here is for round 2…I remember 2007 I was reading people’s blog entries…I remember thinking I wish I was as happy about my job like so and so.  I know I’ve said this before, but I love what I do.  Ever since I got involved with the community, despite partial times of insanity.  It felt really nice to fit in somewhere when I have never in my life felt like I fit in anywhere.  Thanks for that everyone.  I really appreciate it.  And so the insanity continues time for more SharePoint Saturday Kansas City planning and move planning.  Maybe sometime next year I can breath a little more.  See you all later…
