Dual purpose blog post this time. I wanted to announce a presentation I’m giving at SPTechCon Boston 2013 next week as well as pass along info on the call for speakers at the upcoming SharePoint Saturday Columbus 2013.
SPTechCon Boston 2013
I have the honor of speaking at SPTechCon Boston for another year. This will make it 4 times now. The folks at BZ Media always put on a great show with high quality speakers and involvement from the community. There will even be two different user groups (SharePoint and Project Server) meeting during one night of the conference. If you haven’t yet registered you still have some time. If you’ll be attending stop by my session or find me in the halls.
Title: The Evolution of Social in SharePoint
Audience and Level: IT Pro / Architect, Intermediate
Abstract: Activities, newsfeed, community sites, following… these are just some of the big changes introduced to the social experience in SharePoint 2013. This class will discuss the evolution of the social components since SharePoint 2010, the architecture (distributed cache, microfeed, etc.) that supports the social experience, and proper planning considerations when deploying social capabilities (personal sites, SkyDrive Pro and distributed cache). This class will include demos of the social newsfeed, community sites and mentions. Attendees should have an intermediate knowledge of SharePoint 2010 or 2013 administration.
SharePoint Saturday Columbus 2013
On Sept 14th, 2013 Columbus will be hosting the next SharePoint Saturday Columbus. This is a bit of a late announcement, but the call for speakers is still open until midnight on Monday Aug 5th, 2013. That’s tomorrow as of the time of writing. If you have a topic you’d like to talk about relating in any form to SharePoint we’d love to have you submit. You can send speaker submissions (click here) to BuckeyeSPUG@live.com if interested. One of the first conferences I spoke at was a SharePoint Saturday up in Cleveland and it led to so many great opportunities and networking contacts.
