Last week was, I believe, the second annual Microsoft Sharepoint Conference. I will have to admit I was not there. In the past I would have told you that Microsoft has only three great conferences for developers: MIX, Tech-Ed and PDC. Not saying that DevConnections or VSLive are not great conferences, but in my opinion these are the best. But, last week made me realize that there is a fourth great one for developers, Microsoft Sharepoint Conference.
Following the tweets of some of the conference attendees made me realize how important it was. The keynote itself had many tweets which were very exciting. The announcements were what you expect at a great conference. Am I sure that the sessions were great I would expect no less from a Microsoft conference.
Another reason I thought this was great is in a year of IT cut backs, this conference sold out, and my other favorites did not. I know PDC has not happen yet, but I doubt it will sell out.
My advice is that if you’re a Sharepoint developer, this is a great conference to go to next year. I am not one, but with all of this excitement maybe by next year I will be.
