SharePoint Saturday Tampa Slides

I’ve uploaded the slides from my presentation at SharePoint Saturday Tampa to Slide Share for anyone interested. Feel free to learn more about leveraging the ribbon API and dialog framework. If you have any questions or comments feel free to shoot me a message via the contact form. I’m currently working on cleaning up the code that I demo’d during the presentation and will be releasing it in a series of blog posts about the subject. If you would like a copy in the mean time shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to send it to you.

SharePoint Saturday in Tampa

I’ll be speaking in a few days now at the SharePoint Saturday event down in Tampa. I’ll be giving a pretty technical discussion about the Ribbon API and dialog framework. Afterwards I’ll be posting the source code and slides here on my blog so be sure to check back.

Looking forward to meeting lots of great people! See you there!
