I’ve just come back from vacation and I am very pleased to announce The first ever SharePoint Camp being held in Toronto on Saturday, October 20, 2007. I duplicate what Eli has posted in his blog because no one in Greater Toronto Area(GTA) should miss this great opportunity. For most updated information on this event keep an eye on Eli’s blog.
Mark your calendar! The first ever SharePoint Camp will be in Toronto, and registration will be absolutely free.
Toronto SharePoint Camp, Manulife Centre
200 Bloor Street East
Saturday, October 20
The event will be hosted by the Toronto SharePoint User Group with a supporting cast of many fantastic volunteers and guest speakers.
There are 3 tracks: Developer, Administrator, and Champion/Architect. There will be 15-18 presentations total in 3 to 5 theatres. The space should comfortably accomodate 200 to 300 attendees. We’ll follow the CodeCamp manifesto: free, volunteer-run, brand-agnostic, less talk, more rock.
Call for speakers: All submissions must be delivered by September 21, 2007. Presentations and demo code is due by October 12, 2007. Read more about how you can contribute and apply by downloading the Call For Speakers today!
Call for Volunteers: If you’d like to help out, mark your calendar for October 17 and 20 today. Then, watch this blog for link to the sign-up sheet as soon as the site goes live. On Wednesday, October 17th at 6:pm we’ll have a pizza meeting for about an hour at 2 Bloor Street West (Nexient) to get organized. Note that this is the regular time and location of the SharePoint User Group meeting which will be replaced in October by the Organizer’s Meeting (note: in September TSPUG will have a great workflow presentation by K2).
Registration: The website will be up asap, watch Eli’s blog for the announcement to be the first in line.
