Yep, it’s that time of year again. We’re ramping up for the Fall 2012 SharePoint Saturday Twin Cities event. We’ll be meeting on November 3rd this year, still at the Normandale campus down in Bloomington.
We’re not planning on covering a lot for 2013 in our sessions just yet – too many folks are still interested in and using 2010 and the final 2013 version hasn’t been released yet. So, we’ll be focused on 2010 for one more round at least and then see where things are in the Spring. You’ll likely hear a LOT of news about 2013 the following week with the big Microsoft SharePoint Conference in Vegas happening and most of it centered on the 2013 platform.
Speakers and sessions have all been posted – take a look when you have a chance. We’ve got great folks coming from all over and bringing a ton of great sessions, content and experience.
We are also continuing with our 101 Track – so if you have folks that are new to SharePoint, the event has content for them as well. We’ve got 4 sessions specifically in the track – starting with my ‘What is this thing called SharePoint’ session – but there are other sessions throughout the day not in the 101 Track that folks new to the platform can certainly benefit from as well.
Keep an eye out for registration to open next Monday – Sept 10. We will be limiting registration to 600 people again this time as it seems to be getting us to about the level we can manage at the current location. The Spring event had over 460 attendees… We’re one of the largest SPS events in the country.
There are lots of great sponsors again as well, we hope to fill up our space with 30 vendors – they’ll be added to the site as soon as they are validated.
Finally, when putting the event in your calendar, don’t forget to set aside Friday night as we’ll be having our SharePint (the night BEFORE the SPS event). More info to come on that…
If you have any questions about the event, let me know!! I look forward to seeing you there.
