What’s your background as a SharePoint developer?

Well, I started using SharePoint very early, it was 2001, and I didn't like it, to be fair. Then when SharePoint 2007 came out, MOSS 2007 came out I fell in love because I really liked the idea of a .NET Framework and the capability to do real extensibility, even if on the server side. And since there I'm still a full SharePoint lover and developer.

Hi. My name is Corey Roth and I am an independent consultant specializing in Office 365 and mobile.

What’s your background as a SharePoint developer?

As a SharePoint developer, I got my background started in around 2007, when I got thrown into a project in my first consulting gig. They said "Hey, you do SharePoint, at least pretend you do. You're going out to the client next week." I said "Great." My first project was centered around SharePoint Search, so I started contributing in that area and started speaking about it and then for that as I later transitioned into the Office 365...

What’s your background as a SharePoint developer?

So my name is Bob German, and I've been a SharePoint fan since it was called SiteServer.

I did start with SiteServer. I kind of skipped SharePoint 2001, but it's kind of one of the cool things about this is it's the last time they've really changed the user experience, or the way you develop for the UX was when dot net came out in 2002. So I've been there all the way through all the different phases and fits and starts of different ways of doing it.
