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. Also, Dux’s blog may be found on his site.
What did you think of SharePoint Saturday? We would love to hear from you.
