Public SharePoint Websites

SharePoint Conference in Baltimore, Maryland

A Refreshing Change of Pace

Are you in the Winchester area? I’ll be speaking at Refresh Winchester tonight, detailing my painstaking journey throughout the development of my personal pet project, ThumbSticks.com.

If you’re nearby, be sure to check it out tonight at 6:30pm in downtown Winchester.

An Event Apart @ Boston

I know it’s been a long time since my last post, but things have been busy! I’m at An Event Apart this week, which is a conference for UI designers such as myself. I’ll be making a few posts that have been “in the making” for quite a while now in the coming weeks, so look forward to seeing some new design tips and tricks in the days to come.
