The past couple of weeks I’ve been buried in work daytime, and been working just as much night-time with the new SSUG site and the things that will be launched on the site soon.

I’m happy to announce that the first stage in the configuration and setup of www.ssug.se is now completed, and you can go right ahead and sign up with your normal Windows Live ID account.

SSUG.se is alive!

The site SSUG.se is now live, as can be seen here:


Sign up and win an MSDN Ultimate Subscription with VS 2010!

(This applies to Swedish residents only, as this is a local SSUG competition – but feel free to sign up anyway)

On Friday the 29th of October, I will have a prize-draw of all the signed up members – and one lucky winner will get an MSDN Ultimate Subscription for free. All you need to do is click the "Sign In" button in the top right corner, fill in your user profile with your name and e-mail and that’s it!

Sign up to enter the contest: www.ssug.se

Where’s all the content?

I got a question about 5 minutes after we went live; "Where’s the content, and I can’t do anything".

I know this, and as stated we’re currently building the specific features to make this site a great experience for all SharePoint folks to enjoy.

As soon as things falls into place, new functionality and features will open up for more collaboration.

Planned things I’m working on:

  • Discussion forum (TOZIT SharePoint Discussion Forum)
  • Favorites / Friends (A better overview of the folks you’d like to follow on the site)
  • Events & easy signup (A better way to sign up for events than exists out of the box)
  • And more, but the extras will be a surprise :-)

What happens next?

There’s a lot of fun events in the planning, both for the SSUG group and other – and we’ll have them announced shortly on the new site. To register for an event, you’ll need to be a member of the SSUG site.

Meeting in Stockholm is to be planned for November 2010.
Meeting in Gothenburg is to be planned for November 2010.
Meeting in Malmö is in the plans for 2011, where we will kick-start the new year with meetings in Malmö as well.

If you’ve got any questions, just pop me an e-mail or send your request to

Enjoy the awesomeness with this Live ID configured SharePoint 2010 site!
