The other day while recording Episode 15 of Brewery.fm with Scott Hoag, I remembered something that was tweeted about during //Build and that I’d received an email about earlier in the day as well – Office DevCamp. So we included it in the show and hoped that folks would consider checking it out – it’s a great opportunity to meet folks from the Microsoft Office Developer team and to learn a thing or two… for free.
So what are Office DevCamp’s? Do I need a shovel? Will I need insect repellent? I sure hope not. I hope they’re going to teach us how to write Apps and use the Office 365 APIs.
If you’re done reading, head on over to http://aka.ms/msdevcamps and register.
For those of that are still here, good on you! Essentially the DevCamp is held at a Microsoft Office near you (in most instances) and it’s split out into a 5 part day. There are events all over the place in the US to include:
There are over a billion Office users out there in 147 countries (wow that’s a lot) and they’re all looking for ways to better use Office – so why not build an app for them?
Definitely sounds like an interesting day – hope that you’re able to make it out!
The past couple of months have been somewhat of a blur – in a good way for the most part, outside of the derecho that Scott Hoag and I drove through on the way to SharePoint Saturday Dayton.
From an adventure that started on 11 May 2012 in Baltimore at the speakers dinner catching up with Eric Harlan and Cathy Dew to venturing up to Toronto, Canada for the SharePoint Summit to hang with Todd Klindt and Lori Gowin to coming back to head to SharePoint Saturday Atlanta to see Cathy again as well as a host of others to include such wonderful hosts (Ron Jones, Dan Attis, and Matt Ranlett). From there a little of breather was had traveling to Dayton, OH with Scott to see such fine hosts to include Stacy Deere, Stephanie Donahue, and Sean McDonough, whilst bumping into the likes of Virgil Carroll, John Ferringer, and Enrique Lima.
So enough talk and call outs, bring forth the slides! 😉

Look forward to further adventures in the near future and meeting more wonderful SharePoint folks!
So if you’re like, you realize that while there are a ton of resources out there, finding time for them isn’t always the easies thing in the world. What can you do?
Well, everyone needs to eat lunch right? So why not use that time to check out what’s going on in the community and maybe learn a thing or two. But where do I turn? Well, look no further, SharePoint Saturday Boston #3 has a Webinar Series that will be kicking up on 25 October during lunch no less – be fed by SharePoint and by whatever is in front of you (hopefully not SharePoint, unless it’s a tasty and delicious book like that by Todd Klindt, Shane Young and Steve Caravajal – but even that should be consumed via other means).
Enough banter though, onto the details 🙂
Agenda is as follows:
11:45 AM EST – 11:55 AM EST Welcome and Sign-In
11:55 AM EST – 12:00 PM EST Speaker Introduction
12:00 PM EST – 1:00 PM EST Presentation
Below are the list of sessions, dates and times they will be available. Follow the corresponding links below to register for each webinar.
That’s right, we’re back. SharePoint Saturday DC, the third edition, will be on 15 May 2010 at the Northern Virginia Community Campus in Annandale, Virginia, just outside the Capital Beltway.
We’re expecting up to 800 individuals attending with approximately 45 sessions going on through out the day – and it’s all free!
Definitely an exciting event with the SharePoint Server 2010 platform being released to businesses a few days earlier in the week.

Cloud Computing and Azure are two hot topics on the horizon, albeit somewhat SharePoint independent at the moment. Microsoft will be doing a deep dive this week in Tyson’s Corner on the topics of Cloud Computing and the Windows Azure Platform. The audience for this event is more geared toward developers, however IT Pros and Architects will definitely be able to get a good level of detail about these topics.
The event will consist of three sessions to include an (1) Overview of Cloud Computing and Windows Azure, a (2) Survey of Windows Azure Storage Options and (3) Going Live with your Azure Solutions.
The time – Thursday, February 25, 2010 from 1 PM til 5 PM
The place – AMC Tysons Corner 16 (7850 Tysons Corner Center, McLean, VA 22102)

Come one, come all! SharePint!!!
So not to interfere with any SharePoint events this week, but I figured that with so many folks in town this week, why not have a few social events? Who’s in town you ask? Well, MindSharp is in town for a training event and with good ole MindSharp comes Todd Bleeker. Oh but wait, there’s more! Erica Toelle happens to be around as well. What’s more, I think I saw a tweet about Jason Medero being around this week as well. And for those familiar with SharePoint Saturday Virginia Beach’s Susan Lennon, yup she’s here this week too! And not to be out done, Paul Swider will be around for a few days as well.
So what’s that mean? Social hour with the SharePoint Crew… aka SharePint 🙂
Originally we thought, “Let’s have it all in Springfield, that’s where most folks will be right?” But after a little bit of thought, it looks like we’re going to switch things up a bit:
Tentative Schedule (note changes will be tweeted by @sharepintdc)
Monday, 2/22/2010 – 7 PM – Houlihan’s in Springfield, VA (in the Hilton)
Tuesday, 2/23/2010 – 7 PM – Houlihan’s in Herndon, VA (in the Crowne Plaza)
Wednesday, 2/24/2010 – 7 PM – Rock Bottom in Arlington, VA (in Ballston Commons)
Thursday, 2/25/2010 – 7 PM – Mike’s American Grill in Springfield, VA
So right now it’s all tentative, but hopefully we’ll be able to gather the crowd and hang out 🙂
