I know, it’s a tad late – but better late than never, right?
"A success for a fully booked TechDays: 2 days, 100 sessions, 100 speakers and 1300 people attending the sessions. Microsoft’s first – and largest – Swedish event for IT Pro’s, developers and IT-managers has come to an end. A lot of appreciated sessions, lots of social networking and evening mingle."
Sweden SharePoint User Group / Sweden SharePoint Community
As a representative for the Sweden SharePoint User Group and Sweden SharePoint Community (link), I met a bunch of cool people – as well as signing up a bunch of new members.
I even handed out FREE T-Shirts with the tagline "Sweden SharePoint User Group" written on the back, which was sponsored by BambooSolutions – thanks Bamboo!
We’re constantly growing, and it seems to be a huge interest for the User Group meetings we are providing. It wouldn’t be possible without you – the SharePoint users, editors, designers, administrators, developers, haters and lovers! Thanks.
Community and UG status: 200+ members on the page, and another 600 people on the UG event mailing list who have signed up for www.sharepointforum.com
SharePoint rules, and don’t you dare say anything different!
It’s not all work and business
During the evenings, we all shared a few pints and drinks of golden love (beer/whisky).
I met one of the most interesting and cool guys I’ve ever met, in the first picture below. Then it’s me and Göran Husman sharing a pint, and then during break at the event.
I did enjoy the TechDays 2009 in Västerås, and I will most definitely be around next time as well!
I do hope to see as many of you Swedish guys and gals as possible there!
Thank you Microsoft for organizing this awesome event. Kudos.
