#SPSSD SharePoint Saturday San DIego 2014

Posted by sharepoinTony on November 7, 2014

This is a rough edit version – for the final version please go to my active blog:

#SPSSD SharePoint Saturday San Diego 2014

The #SPSSD 2014 event is shaping up to be something special, from start to finish and everything in between.

Why is this so special?

Well, let’s look at some of the stats to get the story started.

· We have over 127 different companies represented in attendee registrations.

· We have roughly 300 people registered to attend.

· We have 14 fabulous sponsors who are making the event possible – and Free to attendees!

· We have @ 23 speakers volunteering their time and weekend to present at the event.

· Among those speakers are SharePoint MVP’s, widely recognized authors and trainers as well as coveted expert speakers – all nationally or internationally known.

· Additionally, we have many great speakers who may not be as well-known but are full of experience and are experts in their own right.

· We have 6 tracks and nearly 30 sessions covering topics for Business, End User, IT Pro, Developer, Office 365 and Sponsor Solutions – the day is jam packed with SharePoint gems.

· UCSD Extension is our venue – and it is perfect for a SharePoint Saturday, with fully equipped professional classrooms and facilities that are comfortable, we couldn’t be more lucky.

Now let’s add the pre and post events to the mix. Speakers will be treated to a beach party luau complete with ukulele serenades and hula dancers around a beach bon-fire. Attendees will be treated to lunch during the event and have the opportunity to mingle with the speakers, sponsors and each other at the SharePINT post-event gathering. Saturday wraps up San Diego Beer Week, and so it is fitting for us to host the SharePINT gathering at the La Jolla Brewing Company (LBC).

Due to our sponsors’ willingness to make this an awesome event, and K2 for providing extra funding to help host the SharePINT, we will have the Tasting Room at LBC reserved for our private party. How much better can it get – SharePINT, Beer Week, and a private room at a brewing company? How about a free drink or two! LHC offers a full bar, appetizers and a great dinner menu that should accommodate everyone’s tastes. What a great way to wrap up a full day of SharePoint sessions.

For the “cherry on top”, we also have some great prizes for the raffle….so I encourage you to stay for the day, pick up a prize during the raffle and then join us at the SharePINT. The whole package is what makes this a special event.

Stale for a reason

Posted by sharepoinTony on December 12, 2011

The holidays are here and this blog has been neglected for long enough. The neglect is not without cause; I have simply been quite busy with SharePoint installations, upgrades, migrations , implementations and family matters. Everyone seems to experience the hectic feeling that seems to captivate us at the end of the calendar year. But the time has come for me to play a little “catch-up” with this blog.

I have a few things pending, so I won’t offer up much now, however I have started working on a few changes that I hope to have in place by New Years.

Until then,
Happy Holidays & thanks for browsing my blog!

Summary of SANSPUG meeting on 8/3

Posted by sharepoinTony on August 5, 2010

The new SANSPUG (San Diego SharePoint Users Group) is growing fast, and it was apparent at the August meeting held this week.  There were only a couple of empty seats and those in attendance engaged in many discussions and gained valuable tips on SharePoint.

The first session presented by Galen Keene on “Being a SharePoint Site Collection Administrator” was well received.  Galen did a great job of running down all of the menu items available to a 2010 SCA by keeping it informative, interactive and NOT a boring lecture just listing the menu items.  Kudos to Galen, especially considering this was his first user group presentation!

Chris Givens followed with an interesting session on “Using SharePoint Content Types Properly“.  His session included some live demo’s hosted on the SharePoint site.  Having a SharePoint 2010 site available to the user group proved its value tonight.   This informative session sparked discussions that intrigued everyone.  Chris adjusted on the fly and displayed live on the SP 2010 site several things  people were asking about and seamlessly went right back on track with his presentation.  Excellent job Chris!

I think everyone learned something at this meeting, and seemed to enjoy both sessions.    We wrapped up with announcements about upcoming events that are in the planning stages, such as a SharePoint Exam Cram, a SharePoint Sprint, and a SharePoint Saturday in San Diego!

The San Diego SharePoint Users Group holds monthly meetings that are FREE to anyone interested in SharePoint.  The group has two levels of membership, a basic member just like any other user group and the other a paid member who desires access to additional (“Premium”) content and activities.  To learn more about upcoming meetings and events check out the site.  Registration on the site is free, which provides access to meeting presentations and more.
