About Vanessa Williams

Vanessa Williams is a developer and systems analyst whose work experience spans several industries - including transportation, petroleum marketing, manufacturing, retail, and (most recently) motor-sports entertainment. She spent last year implementing SharePoint Portal Server 2003 for a local sports entertainment venue. She has ten years of experience in systems administration, implementation, and software development. In previous lives she was a shipping clerk, a payroll clerk, a forklift driver, and a candlestick maker (just kidding). Vanessa grew up in Indianapolis, where she graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management and Computer Information Systems. In addition to writing and consulting, Vanessa maintains the Web site where she aggregates SharePoint content. She is feverishly at work on her next title, Visual Studio 2005 All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies. Vanessa welcomes comments and suggestions about this book. Send your comments to
