Some of My Fav Pics – Social Side of SharePoint Conference #SPC14

There was all this talk about working like a network, working social, and working in the open, but I felt like the SharePoint Conference was a chance to rekindle relationships with friends from all over the world.  I had friends from Argentina, Colombia, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa who travelled crazy distances to come and listen to sessions… No, they were there for the same reasons I was…  to meet up and network with friends, and see if there’s anything new in any of these roadmap sessions that will help us better understand the direction of the product teams.

In previous years there were a number of social activities planned, and just a month out I was getting worried that people were so caught up in the cloud battle and just too exhausted to try to put something together.  In the past I’ve always gotten caught up in all of the parties and trying to connect with as many people as possible, that I decided it was again important to track socially what was going on and help contribute to a calendar of activities.

The community area was really just a place to hook up your laptop and as a meeting place it was even confusing, I hope next year they listen to the community for putting this together.
