On Saturday 2nd October 2010 the first ‘SharePoint Saturday’ event comes to the UK! It’s based in Birmingham at the NEC (details here), it’s all day and guess what? It’s free, so before you carry on reading – sign up now! or you can find out more by visiting the SharePoint Saturday UK site.
What is SharePoint Saturday?
SharePoint Saturday is a free SharePoint conference, set on a Saturday, that offers its attendees a range of different 1hour sessions ranging from development & design all the way through to product showcase & architecture best practices. The sessions are presented by all ranges of SharePoint professionals from MVPs to first timers – like me.
UK’s first SharePoint Saturday has been organised by Intelligent Decisioning’s – Tony Pounder, Mark Macrae and Lightning Tools’ very own Brett Lonsdale, free of charge and in their spare time so be sure to thank them for there inevitable hard work that will be put in on the day and that is currently being put in getting it ready – thanks guys.
What am I talking about?
I will be demonstrating how a keen eye for design coupled with careful use of SharePoint designer can make your SharePoint site your own! This session will include 15 mins worth of quick fire questions and live, improv branding!
Get your questions ready now or if you’re not attending send them through with a chance of getting them answered live!
This is a branding, design, look & feel, lick of paint type of session for people that are interested in seeing how relatively small changes can give your SharePoint site a bit of ownership.
What else is there?
The sessions are still to be officially announced but here are the confirmed speakers (session details to follow) with links to their blogs.
As you can see the line up is already pretty impressive and I have heard word some great additions are being added in the coming weeks – so keep checking the SharePoint Saturday UK site
I’m really looking forward to the event, I know it will be a success as SharePoint seems to have such a strong UK community.
See you all there!!
