SharepointPT Day! the after report . . .

SharepointPT - Sharepoint Portuguese Community

It was the first big event of the SharepointPT so we were a bit stressed out on how it would turn out . . . and guess what???? it was an excellent event !!!

A packed room with excellent speakers and a lot of Sharepoint 🙂

So we started with an intro by Rodrigo Pinto representing the SharepointPT, followed by the session of Joel Oleson.

Joel Oleson’s The worst practices in development session was great, good inputs, good wakeup calls and most of all many questions on the subject.

Afterwards we had Mark Miller live form New York, this session was on The Missing Link between SharePoint and the End User Community, the importance of endusers on the implementations of Sharepoint. A lot of interest on the subject by the attendants and some pretty cool interaction between Mark and Joel.

After lunch we had a session on Sharepoint Online by João Bilhim and Denis Heliszkowski from Microsoft, this session showed us what can and cannot be done on Sharepoint Online.

The last session was SharePoint2010 – Nuts and Bolts on Development  with Rodrigo Pinto & Rui Melo  from our own SharepointPT a session / Chalk Talk that provided us with the pointers to better development.

It was a great day for all that attended and organized this event, I would like to thank specially to our speakers, attendants and organizers for making this event great and for giving us reasons to organize much more.

See you in the next community meeting or event.
