SharePint at WPC12

One of my favorite weeks of the year is coming up – the Microsoft WorldWide Partner Conference.  One of the best meet-ups of the week has always been the SharePint event.  This year should be no exception.

This year, the Microsoft SharePoint Marketing Group has worked with Pingar and 3 other software companies, Axceler, Rackspace, and Idera, to host a meet-up for partners that work within the SharePoint ecosystem during the week of WPC12.

You know what they say…  SharePoint by Day, SharePINT by Night!

This year SharePint will be on Tuesday, July 10, from 6-8PM at the Madison Avenue Pub, in Toronto.

WPC is a huge event, and while there are some important sessions for SharePoint partners, the real significant effort at WPC should be about meeting with other partners and working to grow your company’s network and connections.  I think this is why the WPC Connect portion of WPC has grown to be (at certain times of the week) the busiest part of the conference.  While it can be hard to find open time to meet with specific partners, at least SharePoint partners understand where they can meet their SharePoint peers and enjoy some good conversation.

I’ll be meeting with partners at WPC Connect, attending a couple of the sessions, and hoping to meet everyone at SharePint!  If I haven’t already reached out to meet you, please reach out to me and let’s meet at WPC12!

I’m certainly looking forward to an amazing week in Toronto.

SharePint at WPC10

After a great day of speaking with partners, and learning about how Microsoft is going to lead with partners into the next twelve months or few years, and attending conference keynotes and sessions, and, of course, perusing the grand exhibition hall(!), please join us at SharePint at WPC10!

What is a SharePint?  (Did the guy just miss-spell his own product name?)

Think along the lines of “SharePoint by Day….   SharePint by Night!”

We had an amazing time last year in New Orleans at SharePint at WPC09.  We were at Pat O’Brien’s and had about 200 SharePoint partners that night.

For WPC10, however, we’ll be meeting at The Rocket Bar, 714 Seventh Street, NW, Wash. D.C.

It’s a giant Meet-Up for anyone interested in SharePoint.  Come as you are, and look forward to making new friends. 

A SharePint is a casual event – it’s not sponsored by anyone or by any group, generally.  Even at WPC10, I’m kind of picking a place for it to be held, but it’s not sponsored by Microsoft or by me, at all.  Everyone is on their own – and that’s what makes it such a great and open event –

Can’t wait to see you all there!
