Slides from SharePoint Saturday Kansas City: Customizing the Ribbon UI

SharePoint Saturday Kansas CityIt’s been a week since I was in Kansas City doing a presentation on how to customize the new SharePoint 2010 ribbon.  It was a busy week, so I’m just now getting a chance to make the slides and Visual Studio project that I used for the talk available for download.  I’m hoping to transfer the talk into a series of Blog posts over the next few weeks, so if you missed the original talk stay tuned.  Here are links to the downloads:

Best Practices Conference Wrap-up

3421642827_9f52c70952_t[1]I just arrived home from the Best Practices Conference last week.  The conference was EXCELLENT!   There were lots of great sessions to hear, attendees to talk to, and friends to visit with.  The next BP Conference will be sometime next August/September.  Don’t miss out on that one if you didn’t get to this one. 

For any of those who attended, I’ve attached the slide deck from my talk on Monday about Best Practices around managing Users, Profiles and MySites.

Finally joined Twitter

Many people know that I’ve avoided joining Twitter for a long time.  But I finally got an offer I couldn’t refuse.  I’m here at the New Zealand Community SharePoint conference and was on an expert’s panel earlier today with Paul Culmsee, Chandima Kulathilake, Joel Oleson, and Steve Smith.  Before the questioning started Joel was giving me a hard time because I was the only panelist not on Twitter.  Then he gave me a choice.  Either join Twitter or join him in eating some Kina (Sea Urchin – a local New Zealand delicacy).  I’ve decided to choose TWITTER!  Here’s a picture of Joel eating Kina.

You can read about his response on Joel’s Blog here, and I quote, "It smelled foul, very fishy…"  All in all, I would rather Twitter.
