Yesterday and today I attended the SUGDC Summer Regional SharePoint Conference. And by "Regional", we mean Washington, DC and surrounding provinces and territories. Telling the story via graphics:
I'll point out I didn't drive, I flew, though the flying experience probably took longer on the way up than driving would have. Yes, I'm aware that driving can take quite a while; yes, my flight up was nightmarish.
As I've been told before, the most important thing about attending a conference is not its sessions; it's the people you meet. I'm not going to call out names, but it was great to be able to meet a bunch of people of differing skillsets and backgrounds. And by differing skillsets, I mean "expert," "expert PLUS," and "Super expert plus, TURBO"—we're all pros here. Of course, of course; me too.
Since I did dutifully take notes, I'll share the fun bits here:
Wow, I need to learn to edit, bad me. Well, no way I'm going back and attempting to edit that behemoth; if you made it this far, then there must have been something good in there to keep you reading. Or you're a skimmer.
I do generally recommend this conference, especially to those of you in the area, as:
a) It's on a Friday/Saturday, which means you only lose one workday and one weekend day; (strikes a compromise between missing work and hating life)
b) The management track was excellent and had tidbits you can find nowhere else…well, nowhere else besides another conference or a $1400 report;
c) There was no "Intro to Silverlight" session.
