Webcast for DeVry University: Careers in Technology – Jan 2020

During the current period of uncertainty (related to COVID-19) for students of all ages I wanted to share a webcast I recently presented on “Careers in Technology”.  In January 2020 my neighbor (and fellow board game enthusiast) Prof. Gina Cooper, PhD invited me to talk with one of her online classes she teaches at DeVry University.  She has been asking me to present for a few years now so this was long overdue.  The students are in her 100-level Python programming class so I this is tailored to college (university or higher education if you are outside the US) students but the topics could apply to any level of school.

Below is the recording of this webcast.  Note that there are covered up portions of the screen recording to protect the privacy / faces of any students.  Thanks to the DeVry staff for providing this recording and the opportunity to present.  If you have any additional tips for students entering into their careers please share in the comments and I’ll incorporate if I present this session again.

Presenting at Collab365 SharePoint Summit 2019

I have the privilege of presenting “Getting Started with Microsoft Graph Development” at the upcoming Collab365 SharePoint Summit taking place Sept 10-12, 2019.  This is a free online conference with MVPs and experts from around the world presenting on developer, IT Pro, and adoption topics.

Title: Getting Started with Microsoft Graph Development

Abstract: “I hear that I need to use Microsoft Graph for developing against Office 365 but I have no clue where to start.” “I want to grant access to company data without throwing in the entire kitchen sink.” Fear not fellow developers and admins.

This session we will ramp you up to a 200 level knowledge on the pertinent parts of Microsoft Graph including endpoints available, syntax, authentication flows, and more. We will also cover useful examples of what can be accomplished using these APIs. Prior experience with Microsoft Graph is not required but can be helpful.

You can also purchase an all-access pass which includes lifetime access to the videos, additional e-books, and more.  Looking forward to participating in this great event.
