It has been quite a while since I last posted on here, so I think I should pop something in to keep myself active in authoring for the moment. I’ve had quite a substantial change in circumstances in the past month, mostly revolving around moving house to a new area of England, and taking up a new job position with Intelligent Decisioning Ltd, who are a SharePoint consultancy based in Nottingham specialising in SharePoint, CRM and Workflow. I have also recently managed to finally start taking Microsoft certification exams, and passed my first exam, 70-631 WSS Configuration. Many more exams to come!
My work as a SharePoint Consultant now focusses more in development of managed code in Visual Studio than my previous position as an intranet designer where I wrote most of my data visualisation solutions using SharePoint Designer 2007. I now also spend a lot of my time developing for the SharePoint 2010 platform, and constantly acquiring new skills. For example, lately I have been delving into Silverlight development and the SharePoint Client Object Model.
As such, the content which I’ll be posting here might be drifting slightly towards more managed code solutions and ideas, hints and tips, as well as personal productivity ideas which come to mind. However, I aim to continue to write material aimed at the end and power user for the new EndUserSharePoint.com, as I personally enjoy the satisfaction of sharing thoughts and ideas to the wider community though that site.
Intelligent Decisioning are active in the SharePoint community in the UK, playing host the SharePoint User Group UK meetings in the East Midlands, which I shall be excited to continue contributing to the community by helping out with these user group meetings.
Keep posted for more things coming up and cool tidbits that I come across in my never-ending journey of discovery with SharePoint, software development in general and productivity!
