Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is Brian Pendergrass, and I’m with Microsoft (near Atlanta, GA) as a Senior Support Escalation Engineer (Sr SEE) on the SharePoint Search Team. As the name implies, we provide 3rd tier escalation support now as a Premier Field Engineer for SharePoint with focus in Enterprise Search (e.g. architecture/topology, troubleshooting, crawl, and performance) across all versions of the product including Office365/SPOnline). Before joining Microsoft in 2011, I worked with a talented team (in Pasadena) developing SharePoint solutions and led an effort to architect a road-map/strategy for leveraging SharePoint as their institutional platform for ECM (Enterprise Content Management).
If you’re reading this, then hopefully I’ve helped you in the past (and not led you horribly astray), and you’re now reading everything else on this site. Much of what I plan to write in the coming blog posts will essentially be my personal notes, which will undoubtedly vary in scope, direction, and depth. In either case, I’m posting here to both share with and learn from you. Please feel free to [constructively] criticize, disagree, or make suggestions – it can only make this site better and will always be appreciated.
