Introduction

This week during Tuesday and Wednesday we had one of Sweden’s coolest Microsoft conventions of the year – Microsoft TechDays.

It was a great success with many new acquaintances and some very cool sessions being presented.

Microsoft Awards 2011

microsoft-awards

This year I was on the jury-board for Microsoft Awards 2011, where we did a thorough job of picking the winning solution in each of the five categories (Web, Phone, Cloud, Client, Student).

It was pretty cool to see all these exciting solutions from all the nominees. There’s some pretty cool and innovative technologies involved in this years winning solutions.

I would definitely urge everyone to submit some cool and innovative solutions to the Microsoft Award 2012 contest that will be presented next year at TechDays 2012.

Sessions

What’s a good conference without the great sessions from all of our awesome speakers in Sweden? This year at TechDays there were some heavy-duty sessions as well as introductory sessions to cure everybody’s hunger for knowledge!

You can find all the sessions that was presented here in the agenda! The sessions will be uploaded to the site shortly for you to download.

Networking opportunities

If you haven’t been at TechDays and are thinking about going and you’re trying to find suitable reasons for doing so… Then think no more. If you’re like me you’ll make probably attend some of the most interesting sessions and then go around socializing and networking. One of the main aspects of conferences today are the possibilities for growing your network.

Summary

Attend TechDays 2012. It’s awesome.

Introduction

I was just (re)awarded the prestigious Microsoft MVP award for the third year in a row for my contributions to the SharePoint community.

A quote from the Microsoft MVP site about the award:

We seek to recognize the best and brightest from technology communities around the world with the Microsoft® Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award.

These exceptional community leaders come from a wide range of backgrounds. They are teachers, artists, doctors, engineers, as well as technologists, who actively share their high-quality, real-world technical expertise with the community and with Microsoft.

With the MVP Award, we thank these inspiring individuals for representing the voice of thousands in the community through the powerful and independent feedback they give us, and for helping our customers maximize the potential of their software.

SharePoint MVP

For the third time in a row, I am awarded with the awesome Microsoft MVP award for my contributions in and around the SharePoint community.

The past couple of years has been very intense and awesome in terms of SharePointizing the world – and it’s my plan to keep up with the awesomeness for a while longer!

I think we have the absolutely most awesome tech-community engagement in the world in our category. It’s a friendly, tech-focused but social community. With the increased popularity of Twitter and a few other social platforms as of late, getting to know people in the community has been rather straight forward – don’t be a stranger!

Thank you Microsoft, and thank you the Microsoft MVP program and foremost – thank you, the SharePoint community!

See you around!

TechDays 2009 Sweden – Summary of the event

Introduction

I know, it’s a tad late – but better late than never, right?

TechDays 2009 is done for this time around. It was the first TechDays to take off in Sweden, but I surely do hope to see more of those events going on!

"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.

Summary

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.

Microsoft announces a new .NET logo

New .NET Logo!

newdotnetlogo

I was quite fond of the old logo. Or rather, I didn’t mind it looking the way it did. However this new logo is far more cooler and in total sync with modern design/graphics!

I just thought that I’d share this with you so you won’t be surprised when you stumble upon the new logo later on :-)

Read more about it

I read about the new .NET logo in Scot Barnes blog, which you can do aswell if you’d like more background:

Have a good day!

Yesterday after work I received some great news from Microsoft – I’ve been awarded the MVP award!

This means that we’re now two SharePoint MVP’s in Sweden. Göran Husman at HumanData and me!

Thanks to everyone for your support
