Conference Notes

Workshop on SharePoint for Collaboration: An Independent Evaluation (July 2008, Australia)

My three hour workshop on SharePoint for Collaboration at the Open Publish Conference is done. There were about 18 people in attendance, with some organizations having 2 people here, and others up to 5. There was a good mix of SharePoint experience, from those that are currently using SharePoint for collaboration, to those that came to learn more.

There was a real split of opinion on my 7 Pillars Analysis of SharePoint, on which the workshop was based. Some people said “It’s good to get a fuller picture of SharePoint”, and others were (really) upset that I didn’t talk more about how to leverage the best of SharePoint for collaboration.

I take on board some learning points for future workshops. Thank you to everyone who came and participated.
