SharePoint Saturday Huntsville was a Huge Success and so much fun to attend!
Located in Huntsville, Alabama and held at the beautiful Jackson Center, the event was well organized and very professionally run.
I wish I could have attended all of the sessions and also presented. Why haven’t we learned to duplicate ourselves, yet? 🙂 Cathy Dew and Mark Rackley did a great job organizing the event, and it went very smoothly. I was impressed with the pamphlets describing all the speakers, sessions and locations, signs located throughout the building and television displays with information on the sessions throughout the day. Large screens and new equipment made presenting at the Jackson Center a breeze.
Jason Himmelstein’s presentation on PowerShell was a great introduction. His easygoing manner instantly makes you feel comfortable. How he can pack that much information into a session without talking too fast and keeping the audience (from what I could tell, and me at least) in tow from a broad overview through the scripting process. I feel more comfortable after the session, and bet you would, too. The session was aptly named and I’m so glad I could attend.
Stephanie Donahue’s presentation has me wanting to reorganize, and Mark’s already started. Her suggestion to incorporate Harmon.ie to MS Outlook was one of many great tips that she offered and I’m sure many people are following her lead. The rooms were huge and though I heard chuckles (okay, mine may have been loud laughs) at the jokes, the audience was pretty quiet overall. I appreciate all the jokes as I get pretty intent listening and thinking through the scenarios she showed and how I’d implement them in our SharePoint solutions 😉
The February 8, 2014 Free SharePoint training event Sold Out! Here’s an image of the attendees taken during one of the breaks.
My Presentation is Posted on SlideShare Communicating through the RFP Process – What I Want Consultants and Businesses to Know
Please thank the sponsors – they are who make these great events possible!
Brad and Ty were engaging and informative and everyone that visited the Metalogix booth walked away with my favorite piece of swag – the car and wall multi-phone charger. Summit7 Systems’s booth was full and many of their consultants as well as the owners were on hand to answer questions and meet with the attendees. I was glad to get to spend time with Ben, Amy, Jason and Lane. Ben gave a great presentation that had me paying rapt attention despite the distractions of lunch and great company. Nintex’s VP gave a presentation at lunch which was an overview and quick explanation of their forms and work flow solution.
