Once again, the SPSDC organizers put on a great event this past weekend!
I attended this time as a speaker and also as a vendor, both of which I enjoyed very much.
My presentation was entitled “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle with SharePoint”, which was an end-user focused overview of various ways to prevent inconsistencies and redundancy in SharePoint content by taking advantage of out-of-the-box features. This was a new session for me, and I was really pleased with the positive feedback I received. I plan to add some content based on questions raised during the session, and hope to present this session again at future events 🙂
Here are my slides: Reduce Reuse Recycle
Ned Dickert wrote a nice blog post about my session (thanks!)
After my session (which was in the first time slot), I spent the rest of the day at the Lightning Tools booth in the vendor area, talking to attendees about our products. This is one of my favorite things to do, because we offer something of interest to pretty much anyone, no matter their role in SharePoint, and I love having conversations with people where I can help them solve real problems they’re having.
At the end of the day, SharePint was held at the aptly-named World of Beer in Reston Town Center. They had a really nice selection of beers, and I liked that you could browse their beer list on mobile devices, by origin and style. Among others, I tried a flight of local beers… yum! And of course I really enjoyed spending time with old SharePoint friends, and making some new ones 🙂
See you next year!
