Last week’s SharePoint Saturday The Conference in DC (August 11-13) was a terrific success. This community-organized event attracted about 2,000 registered attendees and 60 sponsors. Over 190 speakers presented 250 sessions. 150 volunteers coordinated it. Kudos to Dux Raymond Sy, managing partner at Innovative-e, and his team of volunteers who made it all happen.
AISN used this opportunity to:
- reconnect with old colleagues and welcome new colleagues;
- present a session (led by AISN Chair Kurt Baumann) for those who are choosing between on-premise hosting and outsourced hosting;
- communicate the value of outsourced SharePoint hosting through our exhibit in the Exhibitor Hall; and
- release our white paper, “To Cloud or Not to Cloud: SharePoint 2010 Hosting Options…and Which One Is Right for You.”
If you didn’t make it to the event, we encourage you to participate next time. For less than a $40 registration fee, it’s a great value to the SharePoint Community. Check the SharePoint groups on LinkedIn for feedback.
What did you think of SharePoint Saturday? We would love to hear from you.
