Sign Up, Show Up and Soak Up --- The SharePoint Experience

If you have not heard of SharePoint this post may not be for you. However, if you have read on. SNAGHTML8f3ecad

If you are wondering what SharePoint is … read on.

A Little Secret:
If your company owns Windows Server … you HAVE SharePoint.

If you want to know more about SharePoint take the time, make the time to attend any number of the free events that happen all over the world. For a deeper dive there are for fee events too.

Just a few of the events:

  • SharePoint Saturday – Happening in a city near you
  • SPTechCon – San Francisco in Feb & Boston in June
  • SharePoint User Groups – Happening all over the world.
  • SharePint
    • imageNote there is a missing “o” in this word. SharePint events are great because they are a chance for people to get together and socialize. Oftentimes they are sponsored by vendors like Rackspace

SharePoint has taken the world by storm. It went from Plaything to Platform in a short 10 years. Have you gotten hooked yet?

  • What SharePoint events have you attended?
  • What SharePoint events would you like to attend?

Sign Up, Show Up and Soak Up The SharePoint Experience!

After you’ve been hooked … Share it!

I hope to see you at one or more of these events. I’ll be speaking at a few of them about Social Computing and SharePoint and about the Future of ECM. I’d love to see you and hear what kind of questions you have.
