Time for a Change

If there is one thing in life that is a constant it is that things are always changing.  New products are released, new technologies developed, and new job opportunities arise.  I decided a few weeks ago that it was time to make a change like that in my life.  I decided it was time to bid my position as a Principal Trainer/Associate at Mindsharp goodbye and return to the world of fulltime consulting.  So two weeks ago I submitted my notice and yesterday was my last official day as a Mindsharp employee. 

I’m taking the rest of the year off to spend some time with family and friends and get some serious writing done on a book I’m co-authoring with Daniel Galant about SharePoint Designer 2010.  Then starting in January I’ll be back to deciding where I go from here.  I’ve started talking to several companies about a position as a Senior SharePoint Architect/Developer.  Or I may decide to go back to being an independent consultant for my own company, Don’t Pa..Panic Software.  Whatever I decide I wish all my friends at Mindsharp well.  Keep your eye on this blog.  When I make a decision on where I’m going I’ll post it here.

I am a SharePoint MVP who has specialized in Microsoft products since the mid-1990s. As a "Jack of all Trades" I have developed expertise as a network administrator, developer, and DBA. I works as a consultant/trainer where my breadth of knowledge makes me ideally suited to combine Administrative, Development, and SharePoint Designer topics. My 20+ years of experience and broad background make me a much sought after resource for SharePoint questions that cross traditional boundaries. I was a contributing author to the Developer's Guide to Windows SharePoint Services v3 Platform and the SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment Best Practices. My most recent book, the MCTS Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-631, was released in October, 2009.
