Today was the kickoff day for SharePoint Saturday-DC Conference. It was pretty good turn out. Several buildings at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale Campus were packed with SharePoint peeps. I saw several people I used to work with at previous consulting gigs; it was great to see them and catch up with them. I’m glad that I decided to take a break from development and attend the SharePoint conference. What struck me about this conference is that it truly feelslike a conference. There were booths, networking, in addition to sessions. I’ve attended SharePoint Saturdays in the past and they ones I attended can be characterized more of a code-camp or “big meetup”. This SharePoint Saturday truly is a conference! There are many more sessions, some of them highly technical, for the next two days. So if you are in the DC-VA-MD area and you want to learn more about SharePoint, please attend!
If you can’t make it in person, you can follow on Twitter, hashtag #SPSTCDC.
