Myself and Sezai Komur have organised the Launch Party locally in perth which will run in parallel to user groups in 7 other locations! Should be a good night please register below to attend!
Local Launch Party
With the release of the new SharePoint, Office & Project Server platforms, there are a number of User Group events being planned around Australia & New Zealand, in-line with the Virtual Launch Party being held by Microsoft.
The SharePoint & Project Server User Group communities are arranging to have a 'simultaneous' launch party beginning in New Zealand, and then moving to Melbourne, Canberra & Brisbane, and through Adelaide, and then finishing up in Perth.
What's it all about ?
As there are maybe separate 'chapters' of the SharePoint User Group of Australia having regularly monthly meetings, this is a fun excuse to get everyone to 'join together' - and have their normal meeting - at the same time as other cities..
Plans are being finalised, but expect the following in some form or other :
- 5:20pm start on Thursday May 13th 2010.
- The Perth event will coincide with the end of the interstate events, this will start via live meeting and chat interaction with other SharePoint User Groups
- Grab a beer and some free food, and enter to win some cool prizes
- Presentation on MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 Upgrade.
- Other SharePoint related bits & pieces - and lots of open Q&A.
So, come along - it should be great fun.
Attendee's will enter to win a number of 'door prizes' :
- SharePoint Conference Ticket to be won in each user group ($650)
- XBox Elite pack with 5 free games (w00t !! That's right folks this is not a misprint.)
- Other items and door prizes are being discussed & arranged
** NOTE : You must RSVP to be in the running for the major prize draw and also be present at the meeting during the prize draw to claim the prize. If you are not present the prize will re-drawn.
