    Becky Bertram


    Senior SharePoint architect , developer, and educator

    About Me:

    Becky Bertram is originally from Durham, NC. She graduated with honors from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI, in 1999, with a double major in Art History and German. Entering the workforce during the height of the Dot Com boom, she originally aspired to become a graphic designer, only to find herself learning more and more about the back-end side of Web development. By studying for her first MCSD certification back in 2002, she essentially taught herself how to program.

    Becky dove right into the consulting world after graduation and has been building Web solutions using the Microsoft platform ever since. Once of her first projects was to help launch Amway's e-commerce site, Quixtar.com, back in 1999. Becky first became familiar with the concept of Web Content Management (WCM) when she worked with Quixtar's proprietary WCM system. She was introduced to Microsoft Content Management Server in 2001 and has since built WCM solutions for customers using MCMS 2001, MCMS 2002, SharePoint 2003, SharePoint 2007, and now SharePoint 2010. Becky has helped build solutions for clients such as T.G.I.Friday's, the U.S. Navy, Gallup, Countrywide, Washington Mutual, Verizon, Conoco-Phillips, Clear Channel Communications, and Amway, as well as for smaller clients across the country. Becky has spent the majority of her career working as an independent contractor, and briefly worked for Microsoft Consulting Services.

    Becky has gotten her MCSD certification twice, has all four SharePoint 2007 MCTS certs, and has achieved the first of four SharePoint 2010 certifications. Becky was given the Microsoft MVP award for SharePoint Server for 2009 - 2010. She has recently worked with Microsoft to develop one of their exams and is currently in the process of authoring several SharePoint development chapters in an upcoming SharePoint 2010 book, Wrox SharePoint 2010 Six-In-One.

    Paul Galvin

    Computer Generated Solutions (CGS)
    Microsoft SharePoint MVP and Director of the Microsoft Applications Practices

    About Me:

    Paul is a Microsoft SharePoint MVP and Director of the Microsoft Applications Practices at Computer Generated Solutions (CGS) in New York City. He began working with SharePoint in January 2007 when he joined Conchango (which was eventually acquired by EMC). His professional career has largely revolved around Microsoft technologies, though his earlier work involved 4GLs. Paul's rise to expertise was largely an issue of self-defense. He was placed into increasingly challenging SharePoint projects over time and actively engaged with the community in an attempt to round out his skills. This had the welcoming side effect of catching notice of the MVP community and he was nominated and awarded MVP status in Jul'08. He has maintained MVP status through appearing at SharePoint conferences and engaging with the online community via his blog and MSDN forums and was an active contributor to endusersharepoint.com in its early days.

    Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    Principal Research Scientist and Fellow at Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Harvard Law School

    About Me:

    Though a wide range of individuals could lay claim to originating the phrase Enterprise 2.0, today there are few who communicate it as well as Harvard Business School fellow Andrew McAfee. Whether through his speeches, press articles, coaching sessions, industry speeches or his blog he is largely revered for his clarity, insight and practicality in describing the enterprise of the future.

    Regarded as the technologists' academic, his research interests map closely onto the information and knowledge management space. His new book, ‘Enterprise 2.0: New Collaborative Tools for Your Organization's Toughest Challenges', is squarely in SharePoint territory, and his frequent conference appearances most often involve a BPM, workflow or information management theme.

    His management blog, which examines the impact of IT on businesses and their leaders, is one of the most frequently linked to in the enterprise world. Among his MBA courses is ‘Managing in the Information Age'.
