SharePoint TechFest Houston 2015 and Working with Large Lists in SharePoint 2013

The organizers of SharePoint TechFest Houston (#HoustonSPTF ) held Oct. 24, 2015 at the Reliant Center, did a great job of putting together a fantastic event. I love to learn new things and I found the presentations I attended on "Creating a Great User Experience in SharePoint" by MVP Marc Anderson (Marc Anderson's Blog) and "Self-Service Business Intelligence for On-Prem Organizations" by my friend, Theresa Eller (Theresa Eller's Blog - SharePoint Madam) really did the trick for me. I also want to thank all the speakers whose presentations I wasn't able to attend. Some of them posted their presentations on the event site The house was packed and I heard nothing but good things from the attendees I talked to.

This year, I also had the pleasure of being one of the presenters at SharePoint TechFest. This is only my third SharePoint public speaking engagement and my audience on Tuesday was the largest yet with all the seats filled and some people standing along the wall in the back. I want to thank all the attendees for baring with me through a few rough patches and not throwing things when I whipped through a couple of my slides with lightning speed. Over the next few weeks, I plan to blog more in-depth on some of the topics I covered, but for now, I'm posting the slides from my presentation.

Also, if you missed my talk at TechFest, I'll be presenting it again with some new material at the Houston SharePoint User Group meeting (H-SPUG) on Nov. 18, 2015.
