This past weekend (4/30) was the SharePoint Saturday event in St. Louis. The folks in charge did a wonderful job organizing and bringing in attendees. We had a beautiful day in St. Louis. While great weather usually translates into lower attendance, we still had over 170 folks signed in. Campus was beautiful and the logistics were well organized. Thanks to all the organizers, which included, but were not limited to: Matt Bremer (@mattbremer), Becky Bertram (@BeckyBertram), JD Wade (@JDWade) and others.
I delivered my SharePoint Lists: Used, Abused and Underappreciated session. It’s a 100 level session talking about list best practices and constructed around the Best Practices Conference approach.
Next stop will hopefully be the Chicago SharePoint Saturday event on June 11, though I’ll also be in attendance at the Minnesota SharePoint User Group meetings between now and then.
Great job guys! Thanks for the invite and hospitality!
The latest SharePoint Saturday event in the Twin Cities was a huge success! Some of the numbers:
The new location worked out very well – holding everyone without too much crowding (other than a few really popular sessions), with free parking and wireless access available. A nice upgrade from our previous digs. We also had a Kinect play area during the day.
Presentations are now available on the site for download.
Keep an eye on the official site for updates and news about the fall “ScarePoint Saturday” event – tentatively scheduled for October 29th.
A big thanks to Sarah Haase for overseeing the organization of the event, as well as to all the sponsors, volunteers, and attendees.
See you in the fall!
Yep, it’s here again. This Saturday is the latest SharePoint Saturday – Twin Cities event. This is a FREE one-day Microsoft SharePoint product seminar/conference event. We’ve got over 400 people registered to attend at our new location – Normandale Community College in Bloomington. So if you haven’t already registered, do it soon.
See the list of sessions and speakers and register here.
We also just launched a facebook page for the event and ongoing events.
Also keep an eye on the Twitter hashtag #SPSTC
For those of you new to SharePoint, I’ll be doing a morning Intro to SharePoint session talking about the features and implementation efforts.
Please let other folks new to the platform know about the event and my session as well – it’s a great (and free) opportunity to learn and share.
See you Saturday!
