The first, ever (but not last) SharePoint Saturday was held January 10th in Virginia Beach.  Congratulations to the organizers of this very successful event.  The primary organizers were

  • Susan Lennon - Virginia Beach/Hampton Roads UG leader
  • Michael Lotter - SharePoint architect, author and evangalist
  • Kevin Israel - Richmond UG leader

There was an awesome lineup of presenters including many SharePoint MVPs and authors.  Each of them volunteered not only their time but many paid their own expenses.  I saw sessions from the following and all were excellent.  There were at least five more sessions I would have liked to attend but I have yet to figure out how to attend two sessions at once.  The organizers have promised to post slide content soon. 

  • Todd Bleeker
  • Joel Oleson
  • Josh Carlisle
  • Becky Isserman

As always, I spent time talking to old friends and making new ones. 

There will be more SharePoint Saturdays.  Kansas City and New York have been scheduled and there are more in planning stages including DC.  Watch for news on their site and register early.  The inaugural event sold out!
