About the Authors

Alara Rogers

Photograph of Alara J. Rogers, circa 2001

Alara Rogers, not to be confused with Buck Rogers or Mr. Rogers, is often thought to be a brain in a tank, but this is not the case; she is a space alien. Alara grew up in the land of IBM near Poughkeepsie, NY, and entered the world of IT via database marketing and analytics. She has a BS in Psychobiology from the University of Pennsylvania and completed the masters program of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University - but never officially got her degree, because to everyone's surprise it turns out that she is totally not O.K. with tormenting animals. Nowadays, her primary interests are business intelligence, process management, information architecture, and SharePoint as a platform for the rest. She has some Microsoft certs, but she doesn't like to brag about them. Alara lives in Baltimore. She writes science fiction in her spare time (of which she has none), and has also been known to reply at length when someone is wrong on the Internet.

Thomas Carpe

profileimage.jpgThomas Carpe is a founder and managing principal of Liquid Mercury Solutions, a Baltimore based Microsoft Gold partner specializing in Azure, Office 365, and SharePoint since 2009. (But, you're on our website, so you probably already knew that!) He's been working with SharePoint since 2001 and for over 20 years with Microsoft technology. He's a Microsoft certification machine, with various certs like MCPD, MCITP, MCSE, and MCSA under his belt. He's still real sore that Microsoft cancelled their Certified Master program before he was able to set aside enough time and money, but what the heck we'll go ahead and call him a Master of Microsoft™ anyway! Tom's an acknowledged expert in SharePoint security and is the author of a large open source library and several software products built on SharePoint. He resides in Baltimore with his wife, four children, housemates, and a menagerie of pets which include: cats, dogs, birds, fish, chickens, rabbits, and turtles.

Nikkia Carter

Nikkia T. Carter is Director of Collaboration and Training for C3 Integrated Solutions - but we're not going to talk about that, since (strictly speaking) we're technically competitors. Nikkia has a BS in Computer Science and a Master’s in IT Project Management and is a CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer. She's a Microsoft solutions developer, strategist, trainer, and tech speaker. She sits on the Microsoft Voices for Innovation board and the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners (IAMCP) board in DC. She leads a SharePoint user group in DC and specializes in SharePoint, Office 365, and InfoPath.
