SharePoint Saturday is coming to Sydney
This upcoming event (the 8th of August 2009 at the Microsoft Sydney Office) is going to be an awesome event with a lot of sessions - all about sharepoint. Think TechED - but only for SharePoint.
Join SharePoint architects, developers, and other professionals that work with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for ‘SharePoint Saturday’, on Saturday, August 8th, 2009. SharePoint Saturday will be an educational, informative & lively day filled with sessions from respected SharePoint professionals & MVPs, covering a wide variety of SharePoint-orientated topics. SharePoint Saturday is FREE, open to the public and is your local chance to immerse yourself in SharePoint!
It is free, and there are many prizes (including my book), and if you come you can hear me talk about developing web parts - General Meeting: How to build real world web parts where I will demonstrate how to build a web part for SharePoint from scratch, and then will demonstrate some of the most elusive best practices that web part developers need to know.
Other sessions available are:
Building a Bulletproof SharePoint Farm; Disaster Recovery and High Availability for SharePoint
What SharePoint Administrators should know about SQL Server
Building Process Driven Applications leveraging SharePoint
ASP.Net and SharePoint
Content Deployment Bootcamp
Blooming SharePoint (SharePoint UI customizations)
Geographically Distributed Deployments for SharePoint

This whole event was organized by my friend Brian Farnhill - who has a great SharePoint developer blog that you should check out if you didn't already, and by fellow MVP Ben Walters - also a great guy all around.
