For many schools its that time of year where you find a bit of money in a budget and you have to spend it. Instead of buying a few computers why not to try and get some professional development for yourself.
If you have or looking at getting SharePoint in the coming months there are 2 great conferences coming up. One is local to the UK the other is in the US – maybe you can get them to push the boat out 😉
European SharePoint Best Practice Conference, 6th – 8th April, Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London
Best practice is always what we should be doing right? But what is the best practice, it’s not always documented so how can you do it?
In the States there have already been 2 Best Practice conferences and its great that we are having one in the UK.
Even though you can sign up online there is a academic discount available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to help you.
Microsoft SharePoint Conference, 19th – 22nd October, Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Centre, Las Vegas
This is Microsoft’s big SharePoint Conference. Last year it was hosted in Seattle but its heading south into the desert and going to be a great 4 days.
On the website for the conference it states “SharePoint Conference 2009 will be the conference to learn about SharePoint 14” so make sure you are there to see the new version.
Hope to see you at both
