Apparently I took a year off!

Well, I’ve neglected this blog long enough. First, it was the holidays. Then there was a bunch of cool stuff I learned about SharePoint 2013 that I wasn’t allowed to post yet. Then I got crazy busy at work. Excuses, excuses. So it’s time to inject some new life into this blog. Over the coming …

SharePoint 2010 MCM

MCMrgb_1265_1406_border.png

Wow… It’s been a crazy summer.  The chaos started back in May when I began hardcore preparations for the SP2010 Upgrade rotation. This was followed by the actual rotation itself in early June.  Shout out to my U2 buddies out here! So the rotation training was fantastic but the testing didn’t work out as well …

I Haven’t Forgotten About You!

Blog Reader:  Hey Russ… What gives?  You haven’t written any blog entries lately? Russ:  Yeah man.  I’ve been slammed with FAST Search for SharePoint 2010 install / configurations, baseball games for my boys, prepping for speaking engagements, and most of all, studying for my MCM 2010 upgrade which is coming up in June. Blog Reader:  …

Calling all Workflow Developers…

In my previous post, I suggested that I don’t like to plug KnowledgeLake on my personal blog because I want this blog to be neutral in order to best serve the SharePoint community.  In regard to my technical posts, I will always strive to maintain this neutrality.  But this is not a technical post!  So I’m going to make an …

SPC2009 Decompression

Well, here I am, 24 hours past the SPC2009 ride.  Now I feel like I’m on a long slow decompression ascension (lame scuba reference) to the public launch of SP2010 next year some time. Now that the SP2010 veil is lifted, I’m finally free to talk about some incredible new SP2010 features that are abslutely CLUTCH for scaling SharePoint …

SP2010 Coming Out Party!

I’ll talk about the SharePoint 2009 conference in a sec, but a few have been asking where I been the last couple months?  Well, I’ve been grinding on a huge solution implementation for a gigantic customer that unfortunately must remain nameless.  It will be the largest SharePoint based document imaging system that I’ve had the pleasure …

Microsoft Certified Master – SharePoint 2007

So back in March, I blogged on the SharePoint Master (MCM) program.  It was an amazing experience.  Unfortunately, even though I did pass the grueling qualification lab, I only passed 2 of 3 written tests on the first pass. Well, I just knocked out my retake and the results are in…. PASS! It really has …

Consider me a Tweeter

Well, I finally took the plunge.  I jumped on the bandwagon.  I finally buckled under the peer pressure.  I am now on Twitter. http://twitter.com/rhouberg I don’t yet understand the magic of Twitter, but not unlike how beer was an acquired taste, I’m going to dive in and see if I can plug into Twitter like …

Come On In… The Water is Fine!

So here it is… The new home for my blog. (For those of you who just navigated over from my old host… THANKS!) First of all… yes, the layout is a bit boring.  I can do better.  I didn’t have time to work out the CSS for a unique theme for my blog.  So this is just …
