Yesterday’s Microsoft event in Cleveland was just as successful as the Columbus event! Both had 30+ attendees, and both had lots of great questions - expect a future blog post where I address some of the most interesting questions asked.

Next week, I’ll be co-presenting with Randy Pagels (Developer Technology Specialist for Microsoft) in a multi-city roadshow event focused on SharePoint 2013 and Visual Studio 2012:
This event allows attendees to get up to speed on the new and improved development and testing features available in SharePoint 2013 using Visual Studio 2012. Some of the key learning areas include:
