More SharePoint at Rackspace

More for me. More for them. More for you.

I’m joining the incredibly talented, infamously humorous, infinitely engaging SharePoint team at Rackspace.

Jeff Deverter and company have hosted the San Antonio SharePoint User Group monthly meetings at Rackspace for a couple years now and I’ve gotten to know a lot of their smart admins. With the recent addition of the SharePoint911 crew the level of SharePoint talent at Rackspace exploded overnight.

If you attend conferences that include SharePoint content, it’s hard not to run into the 6 MVPs formerly of SharePoint911, now Rackspace. I got Shane and Todd to pause during TechEd 2010 for a picture with me (above) where their SharePoint 2010 Administration book was the most popular of the show. Their book sold out all copies in the Microsoft Bookstore on the 1st day of the conference.

I’ll continue to do SharePoint consulting for Rackspace on Shane’s team. And I’ll most likely pursue the evolution of MCM called the MCSM. But one of the things I’m most excited about is the opportunity to do more community events, speaking and writing about SharePoint. Look for a new book from me when Wave 15 hits, a move of to the Rackspace Cloud and a SharePoint Saturday San Antonio announcement coming soon.
