Geeks With Blogs

About Me:
I am a Female SharePoint Developer (a platinum unicorn). I have been working with SharePoint since I attended the Portal University in 2005. I hold a BA in Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. I love playing Rockband, organizing user group meetings, working with code, attending events as a speaker or organizer, and having bizarre conversations about geek things with cool people. If you have any comments or questions fill out the contact form and I will try my best to help.

Feature Stapling a Theme to a Site Definition – The Right Way
We all know about the concept of Feature Stapling and most people write it out correctly on there blogs, such as this post: http://www.sharepointnutsan... However, I’ve noticed that very few blogs have the correct code to post in the FeatureActivated and FeatureDeactivating events. This is the correct code from looking at a CodePlex Project by Scott Hillier, looking at wrong code all over blogs, and debugging some code I cobbled together in Visual Studio to throw ......

SharePoint Saturday Kansas City Officially December 12th
In the mix of things we were the 2nd SharePoint Saturday event and I think we can do far better. I wanted to have a free conference with 2010 content that people didn’t have to pay for if they couldn’t afford SPC. So we are now finally confirmed for Saturday, December 12th at Johnson Country Community College Regnier Center. This event will be bigger (250 is the cap) and far better. I have a lot of good people helping me out including Brian Laird, Kevin Huges, and Bob Davis. St. Louis is working ......

Permissions for SPAuditQuery
The other day I was working with a class that pulls back all the audit information for a user, SPAuditQuery. It has some really good options, especially query by user. I was trying to pull information from the site collection for the user, however I continued to receive a non-descript error message. Finally, I thought to myself what permissions does this user have and sure enough the user was a Site Admin and not Site Collection Admin. If you are pulling audit logs from a Site, then check that the ......

Apartment Shopping – No SPS NY
I’m not attending SPS NY (or at least I think I will not attend), so I pulled out my speaker submission. I have two full days with my boyfriend to apartment shop and that weekend should be more geared towards finding a place. I really wanted to attend, but priorities need to be placed in other areas right now. I am considering attending SPS Bham, but I am not fully sure where I will be and if it’s at all possible fully. I may speak at VConference again this fall (maybe Omaha SPUG and ......

Last Logged Out Time in SharePoint
I was kicking myself last week wondering why am I not seeing a last logged out time in SharePoint. I talked to a few people and I guess I never really though about it. If you are using Active Directory, then there really is no last logged out time for SharePoint. There is a last logged out time in Active Directory, because AD is what is handling SharePoint. So when you logout and you close the browser, then open it back up with SharePoint it will show up with yourself fully logged in. I came up with ......

I’m around…Not fully hiding…
So I’ve been kind of busy lately in Omaha…I have a new gig that deals with FAST and SharePoint, but it’s government so I can’t really talk about it. So far I’ve met a person in Omaha related to SharePoint name Kirk Hofer. He is running the SPUG in Omaha. It sounds like it should be fun. Hopefully we can get a few SharePint’s going in the future. I just did our first unofficial SharePint event in KC…We had about 5 people…We might do another next month to see if we can get more if we hold it in Kansas. ......
