Adelaide SharePoint User Group March 2012 Meeting

What a month with lots happening!

This month’s meeting is happening next week on Tuesday, the 27th of March at Microsoft (their new location on Pirie Street) and will see Paul Turner return and present “Is Office 365 right for you?”

Australian SharePoint Conference

The 3rd Annual Australian SharePoint Conference went off with a blast over in Melbourne. It was jammed packed full of sessions, talks, give a ways, people and very interesting conversations all centred on SharePoint. If you have not gone, start thinking about going next year as it is a great event.

This year’s event was the biggest so far, with over 600 attendee’s over 2 days at the conference with both pre and post events happening as well.

With so many at the conference, it was great to see a large number of family local faces at the conference. We also had a local winner of an XBOX at the conference.

User Group Booth

Sticking with tradition, the Australian User Groups had a vendor booth at the conference where people could come up and talk about the User Groups in their own state as well as meet their local representative. Congratulation also goes to John Hancock for winning the XBOX 360.

Thanks to everyone who came up at the User Group Booth and said Hi!

SharePoint Conference New Zealand

I also wish everyone over in New Zealand with the 4th Annual SharePoint Conference kicking off on March 28 & 29, the best and hope it all goes well.
