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.
