Webinars, Pod Shows, and User Group Meetings

I don't usually do a lot of speaking or presenting but recently a lot of opportunities have come my way so if you're interested in hearing me talk about SharePoint check out any of the following upcoming events:

SharePoint 2010 Readiness Webinar - 3/30/2010

This coming Tuesday, March 30th, I'll be co-presenting a webinar with Paul Stork, Fellow MVP and ShareSquared employee. We've got close to 1700 people registered for this webinar (yup, I'm freaking out just a bit)! You can get more details and register for the webinar here: http://www.sharesquared.com/resources/Pages/SharePoint2010ReadinessWebinar.aspx.

PowerScripting Podcast - 4/1/2010

Next Thursday, April 1st, I'll be interviewed by the guys at the PowerScripting Podcast. This will be a LIVE video streamed interview! Not sure how I feel about that :) The interview, which will focus on PowerShell for SharePoint 2010, will be at 9:30PM EDT. More information can be found here: http://powerscripting.wordpress.com/.

UPDATE: See the recorded show here http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/5889732

SharePoint Pod Show

So this isn't an "upcoming" event but one that I did back in February. I spent a few minutes with Rob Foster and did a quick interview for the SharePoint Pod Show. That interview recently went public - came out better than I thought it would :) You can download the interview from the Pod Show web site: http://www.sharepointpodshow.com/archive/2010/03/18/sharepoint-2010-and-powershell-episode-44.aspx

Colorado Springs SharePoint User Group Meeting - 4/14/2010

I'll be presenting at the Colorado Springs SharePoint User Group Meeting in April. The topic will be on upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010. I'll be covering a lot of the stuff that I go over during the Readiness Webinar but in much more depth. More information can be found on the COSPUG site: http://www.cospug.com/

SharePoint Saturday Atlanta - 4/17/2010

I'll be presenting at SharePoint Saturday Atlanta on April 17th, 2010. I'll be doing my usual PowerShell for SharePoint 2010 presentation so if you've missed it at any previous events I've done please try to drop in - lots of advanced PowerShell goodness :) You can get more information at the SPS site: http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/atlanta/

Microsoft 2010 Launch Event in Denver, CO - 4/20/2010

Microsoft is hosting a series of launch events for the 2010 suite of products, including SharePoint 2010. The Denver event will be at the Hyatt in the Denver Tech Center (7800 East Tufts Ave) on April 20th. I'll be there to demonstrate and answer questions about SharePoint Composer, a new product that I've been developing to help IT Administrators and Architects design and deploy their SharePoint 2007 and 2010 environment.

The Experts Conference 2010 - 4/25/2020 - 4/28/2010

As mentioned in my previous post, I'll be speaking at the SharePoint Conference at The Experts Conference (TEC) 2010. I'll be doing a white boarding session with Michael Noel and I'll be presenting on PowerShell with SharePoint 2010. To learn more about the conference see my previous post. Be sure to register using my unique registration code LAPSPMVP for a discount of $500!

While I'm at the TEC 2010 Conference I may drop by the LA SharePoint User Group Meeting (LASPUG) - so if you can't make it to the conference please drop by the user group meeting as there's a real good chance I'll be there :) You can get more information about LASPUG here: http://laspug.org/.

With the launch of SharePoint 2010 on May 12th, 2010 there's obviously a lot going on. Also, keep an eye out for the 2010 version of my extensions which I plan to release within a week or two of RTM - this release will not have every STSADM command migrated but will contain the more popular ones, all converted to PowerShell.

Thanks again to everyone for all the great feedback I've gotten through my blog - hopefully I'll be able to see some of you at one of these events!
