SharePoint Conference Parties and Activities Calendar #SPC14

Bookmark this site on your phone.  It is mobile available.  I will update as things become known.  There are private parties.

Crowdsourcing the best of Social at #SPC14.  I see this list as the baseline.  I expect to see the plethora of #share style events to be announced and I’m happy to help share.  I will pin this to my blog homepage at for easy access, but as well feel free to bookmark on desktop & mobile.  I’m working on putting together a few of my own from a #ShareGolf to #ShareArea51 and getting a suite setup as the Social Suite for XBOX One gaming and a birds of feather style set of meetups.  More to come on that.  Bookmark this page!  I’m also shouting out to others saying… let me help you market your plans like #SPRunners and #SPScuba and more…  Just contact me on twitter @joeloleson or if it’s impromptu ping @SPCPartyPatrol on Twitter they are said to be following the parties.  FPWeb put a nice writeup on the SPC14 activities including an invite to their party on.


Saturday, March 1

Group of SharePoint Community folks is going hiking and going to a show.  Follow twitter for more info.   I encourage you to head out to Red Rocks or Valley of Fire.  Some are going to Michael Jackson, others are going to KA the cirque show.

    Note there are a few lunches and dinners for insiders and customers of BA Insight,, fpweb, and many others. These are not major gatherings, but are worth tracking down if you are interested in their products.
