Andrew Connell has a background in content management solutions and Web development that spans back to his time as a student at the University of Florida in the late 1990s managing class sites. He has consistently focused on the challenges facing businesses to maintain a current and dynamic online presence without having to rely constantly on Web developers or have a proficiency in Web technologies.
In 2005 and 2006 he was designated a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Content Management Server for his contributions to the MCMS community. When the functionality of MCMS was merged into the SharePoint platform, he became a MOSS MVP (2007 and 2008). Andrew has contributed to numerous MCMS and SharePoint books over the years.
He has spoken on the subject of MOSS 2007 development and WCM at various events and national conferences such as TechEd, SharePoint Connections, VSLive, Office Developer Conference, and the Microsoft SharePoint Conference.
Technology is not only Andrew’s job, but also a personal passion: He thrives on expanding his technical knowledge. When not in front of his computer, he enjoys football, golf, the beach, and spending time with his family. He lives in Jacksonville, Florida, with his wife, Meredith, his son, Steven, and their two dogs.
