My guest appearance on Cloud Conversations ep. 25: SharePoint beginnings, life and career, and Alanis (recording)

I’m excited and honored to have been asked to appear on my good friend Peter Rising‘s podcast Cloud Conversations he co-hosts with Kat Greenan and Ru Campbell. While Ru was on a well-deserved break, I got to catch up with Peter and Kat.

We chatted about how I got to where I am today, what I’ve been up to lately, and we shared some good entertainment and books with each other. Life doesn’t get much better than good times with good people and it’s hard to find better people than those behind Cloud Conversations.

All you need to know about Microsoft Lists (Recording from Wisconsin SharePoint User Group)

My colleague Mickie Brewer and I recently had the privilege to co-present an introduction to Microsoft Lists at the Wisconsin SharePoint User Group. We highlighted and demonstrated all the main concepts of Microsoft Lists in an hour including:

  • List templates,
  • My Lists vs SharePoint,
  • Teams integration,
  • Columns and views,
  • Conditional formatting,
  • Connected web parts,
  • and much more

Alex Lorenzo also presented “Site templates and site scripts for site provisioning in modern SharePoint” after our segment (included in recording – check it out!).

Thank you to WISPUG co-organizer Anthony Escobedo for the original invite, co-organizer Jonathan Schultz for facilitating and sharing the recording, and co-organizers Drew Madelung and Matt Engibous for providing such an awesome opportunity for their group members and visitors to learn with and from one another on a regular basis.

Getting Teams certified: My prep for the MS-700 and the exam guide that followed (Recording)

I was recently invited to speak at the SharePoint User Group of DC and shared some prep tips and exam prep book writing experience with attendees. Most of the session was advice, practice questions, and resources for the MS-700 Teams Administrator certification exam. The last 10 minutes or so, I discuss co-authoring the MS-700 exam prep book with my co-author and friend Peter Rising.

Scott Brewster, one of the group’s leaders, kindly recorded and posted the session to YouTube so you can watch the recording below.
