Earlier this month, Atlanta hosted its latest SharePoint Saturday at the Georgia State University Student Center. There were a number of target audiences, so it worked out that our entire SharePoint team was able to attend. Overall, the conference was a success and proved to be fun and informative; however, that is not to say there were not a few hiccups. First, the map of the building showing the locations of the rooms, which were spread across two floors, was incorrect. Secondly, there were a few sessions in some of the smaller rooms with standing room only. These were minor inconveniences as the organizers and volunteers raced around the building delivering new maps and you just had to plan to be early to the sessions in the smaller rooms.
Historically, the SharePoint Saturday events have been a great value (how can you argue with free), and this one was no different. We are grateful to the event organizers for dedicating their time to make this happen.
Last and not least was SharePint, the networking mixer after the event. If you are an avid reader of SharePoint blogs, then you will probably have heard about this tradition. SharePint was held at the Hyatt where everyone enjoyed their favorite beverages and relaxed after a packed day. Last but not least, there was even talk of Charlotte hosting a SharePoint Saturday later this year. Keep an eye out and we’ll look forward to seeing you there.
