Speaking at Tech Ed Australia 2013

blog_speakingTech Ed Australia is being held on the Gold Coast between the 3rd and 6th September this year. I am happy to announce I will be speaking at Tech Ed Australia this year with my partner in crime, Mr Brian Farnhill with an awesome session entitled….

The SharePoint 2013 App Playbook – Your Guide to Building and Publishing a Great App

Office 2013 has brought an amazing new platform for developers to take advantage of, in the format of apps and the online app store. SharePoint 2013 takes full advantage of this and developers can now publish apps to the store and get their products out to a bigger audience than ever before with minimal time and effort. But if you have an idea for the next big app, how do you go about building it and publishing it for the masses? Well then my friend, this is the session for you! During this session Brian and Alex will take you through the full process for building and publishing apps for SharePoint and Project Server 2013 to the store. The boys will share with you the techniques and strategies you will need to create apps that will engage and amaze users, as well as what to do with an app to help make sure it makes its way through the app stores approval process and on to the app store. You’ll get to see real world stories and learnings from apps that are available on the store today, as well as what potential issues you might come across while working with your own apps. If you have ever thought about building an app or are in the process of creating one, this session is a must see!

We hope to see you there.


Speaking at Tech.Ed Australia 2011


I am absolutely thrilled to announce I will be presenting alongside SharePoint MVP Brian Farnhill at Tech.Ed Australia 2011 a session entitled:

‘A SharePoint Developers Guide to Project Server 2010’

It’s just meant to be – Project Server and SharePoint server are better together, and this is the session that will show you why. Come and join us as we take you on a tour showing how the two products work together, and how you can deliver better solutions by integrating the two. Get to know how developers can leverage both of these great tools together and how you can deliver more value, what the features of the tools can offer and what you need to know as a developer to start solving real world business problems.

We are hard at work on some cool demo’s to show and it is shaping up to be an excellent session.

Tech.Ed Australia 2011 is on the Gold Coast between the 30th August and the 2nd September, registrations are now open. Find out more at http://australia.msteched.com/

Speaking at Tech Ed Australia 2010

teched badgeI am really excited to announce I will be speaking at Tech Ed Australia, presenting an interactive session entitled ‘Leveraging SharePoint 2010 for Project Management’ in the AvePoint Interactive Theatre. The session outline may sound familiar, but I have made some changes and pimped out a few of the demo’s..

Today it is more important than ever to ensure every project your organizations undertakes is delivered effectively. To accomplish this, it is essential that there is clear communication and effective tools to facilitate your project management process. Come and see how SharePoint 2010 can improve the management of your next project, including the new Project 2010 client integration, Visio Services and Team Site improvements.

As if the content wasn’t enough, I also have a one year Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate + MSDN subscription to give away during the session, courtesy of MSDN, valued at over $20,000 AUD. So please come along and support your favourite project management tools, SharePoint 2010, Project Server 2010 and Project 2010.

Update: Thanks for all of you that came along to the session at TechEd, whilst the presso was pretty short (only 30 minutes allocated) and the kind guys of the .Net Rocks podcast decided to sing using a VERY loud amplifier for the entire session, the feedback was great. The slide deck for those of you that asked, is available here.
