Geekette's Blogette Trying to keep up with technology

During the closing session of Virginia Beach SharePoint Saturday, I guy came in alone and sat next to me.  I started chatting with him and found he was very impressed with the event.  He had never heard of User Groups, Code Camps and had found out about SharePoint Saturday by chance.  He wanted to know how to find out more.  My initial reaction was to collect his email address, promise to send him information and then maybe send it to him in a few weeks. 

Then I remembered and gave him the link to CommunityMegaphone.  He had his laptop, immediately checked out the site and bookmarked it.  I have shared that site so many times as an easy to remember way to keep up with events. 

Then he asked what user groups there were in his area.  Turns out he was from the DC area so I started listing them.  He mentioned he was from the same town as the mid-Atlantic DE, Andrew Duthie.  I remembered the user group map on Andrew's blog of all the mid-Atlantic user groups.  I shared the link, he clicked the map and said "Wow!  This is great.  I can find out anything I want to know between these two sites."

Thanks Andrew, for making it easy to share with the developer community.

Thanks for the shout-out, Robin!

As it happens, I just completed a video overview of Community Megaphone which I'll be posting shortly. So you will also be able to point folks to that for a 10-minute (or so) overview of what all Community Megaphone does.

Of course, Robin humbly omits the fact that it was her great feedback (along with other folks in the community) that helped make the site what it is. In particular, Robin suggested the Past Events feature. So I tend to think of it as more of a group effort.

Thanks for the post! I didn't know about either of these two sites. They were just what I was looking for this morning.
