This past weekend I gave my “Managing SharePoint 2010 Farms with PowerShell” talk at SharePoint Saturday New York City (SPSNYC) 2010. Thanks to everyone that attended my talk. They had a lot of great questions and seemed engaged.
I’ve begun to lose track of how many SharePoint Saturdays I’ve attended or spoken at now, but it’s close to 9 and 7 respectively. This was a great trip as it’s been over 10 years since I’ve been to New York and this time around held it’s own set of stories to share. For those just interested in the slides and demo scripts those are provided just below. For those interested in some of stories and photos from this trip proceed further down.

One great story from this trip involves my last blog post about blue screening the morning of my presentation. Luckily I was able to recover within a few hours and give my presentation later in the day.
The first night in New York was also great as we followed up the speaker dinner with a Japanese karaoke house and then Russian bar. Special thanks to two of our group members who ordered some excellent food and drinks (including caviar and borsch soup.) That diversity of cultures is something that we here in Columbus, OH don’t get as much exposure to.
Following the conference on Saturday I was able to meet up with an old high school friend who showed me around downtown and east village New York. The pizza at Lombardi’s (pictures in albums above) was a true highlight of the trip.
The one negative story from the trip (aside from blue screening above) was that I missed out on the speaker photo after the conference. We assembled for it but then split up to do some clean up. As I was returning from another room fixing up chair arrangements they just finished up taking the pictures. Only a minor disappointment.
SharePoint Saturday New York was a big success with over 200 attendees (I heard close to 270). My next SharePoint Saturday will be in my new hometown for SharePoint Saturday Columbus. In addition to being the event coordinator I’m also speaking at the conference (same presentation for SharePoint 2010 and PowerShell.) there is still a week left to register so if you are in the area feel free to sign up: register here.
