Visit Rackspace At DevConnections; Meet SharePoint MVP, Author

Rackspace will take this year’s DevConnections conference by storm with a booth on the expo floor and a book signing by a SharePoint MVP and author who recently joined Rackspace in the acquisition of SharePoint911.

Heralded as one of the largest Microsoft-oriented conferences globally, DevConnections — March 26 through March 29 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas — brings together industry leaders and Microsoft employees to share their experience and expertise with various Microsoft offerings, including SharePoint, SQL Server and Cloud and Windows.

SharePoint MVP and Rackspace SharePoint Consultant Todd Klindt, author of Professional SharePoint 2010 Administration, will join Rackspace in its booth on the expo floor to sign copies of his book (while supplies last). Klindt, who has specialized in SharePoint for eight years after a fateful encounter with an Office XP CD that contained SharePoint Team Services 1.0, has become a SharePoint thought leader, achieving the MVP award from Microsoft in 2006 and presenting SharePoint-focused sessions at major industry conferences globally.

Klindt will be joined at the signing by the book’s co-author Steve Caravajal, Ph.D., senior principal and lead architect, Collaboration and Business Intelligence, Microsoft.

Professional SharePoint 2010 Administration drills into how SharePoint functionality has changed and improved, and offers an in-depth look at SharePoint 2010’s features and capabilities along with insight on how to get the most of SharePoint 2010. The book demonstrates installation, configuration and upgrading from existing SharePoint 2007 servers; discusses architecture and capacity planning, securing and managing site content and integrating Office clients; details the protocol for handling monitoring, creating backups and executing disaster recovery; and addresses shared service applications, navigation and governance and business intelligence and reporting services.

Klindt and Caravajal will be at the Rackspace booth, #107 in the expo hall, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, signing copies of Professional SharePoint 2010 Administration (while supplies last). And Rackspace will be available throughout DevConnections.
