Jake "Dan" Attis
Product Development Manager
J. Dan Attis is the founder of the Atlanta SharePoint & Office 365 User Group and has been a staple in the local .NET and SharePoint communities since the days of SharePoint 2003. He has been working almost exclusively with SharePoint since 2005 and is a 11-time Office Server & Services Most Valuable Professional (MVP). His IT career began in 1999 when he first moved to the United States from Canada after being recruited by an international consulting firm. After getting settled in, he started putting in his time (roughly 10 years) at various local firms, including Definition 6, Intellinet, and Slalom Consulting. His current employer, B&R Business Solutions, is a New Jersey based consulting and product company with a deep focus on SharePoint. Dan's specialty is custom development, but he has been seen working in many other areas, including product development, architecture, project management and business analysis to name a few.
When not sitting in front of his many monitors in his home office, coding away like a madman, he enjoys spending time with his exceptionally awesome and beautiful daughter Lily.
You can find Dan moderating or speaking at the monthly meeting of the Atlanta SharePoint & Office 365 User Group (@atlspug, #atlspug), online via Twitter (@jdattis), LinkedIn, organizing a SharePoint Saturday, Cloud Saturday or Code Camp or attending one of the many industry leading technology conferences such as Build or Ignite.
Dan lives in Roswell, Georgia, where the sun is hot and his [cool weather] fescue lawn is both his love and his evil nemesis.
