Presenting at the Microsoft Federal SharePoint User Group in Ottawa on Tue, Sept 24 at 5pm

Come out to hear me present at the Microsoft Federal SharePoint User Group in Ottawa this coming Tuesday, September 24 at 5pm on the topic of “Cloud-based development for SharePoint / .NET using CloudShare and Team Foundation Service.”

Cloud-based platform and software environments are a hot topic these days. Why bother hosting, managing and licensing VMs and software for your development projects and test labs when the VMs are often only required for a few months or a year. Explore the possibilities with CloudShare for your SharePoint 2013 development environment and tools and Team Foundation Service for your source control and ALM infrastructure. We will examine the types of environments and virtual machine templates available and how to create your own custom templates. We will demonstrate how to spin up, configure and manage a SharePoint 2013 development virtual machine, and how to collaborate in a team environment, both with active collaborators who fully control the SharePoint VM and more passive collaborators who are sent their own private snapshot of the SharePoint VM.

The presentation will take place at the Microsoft Canada office in Ottawa at 100 Queen Street, Suite 500. Refreshments and pizza will be provided.
