I’m very excited about the upcoming SPTechCon in San Francisco, and here’s why:

1. I’ll be presenting three sessions, two of which will be on the topic of SharePoint Maturity, and two of which I’m honored to co-present with SharePoint community experts whom I deeply respect:

– Monday, February 27 – 11:30 AM – 12:45 PM – Maturing Your Business Processes in SharePoint (with Derek Weeks of OpenText / Global360)

– Tuesday, February 28 – 8:30 AM – 9:45 AM – The SharePoint Maturity Model: How Far Along Are You?

– Tuesday, February 28 – 4:00 PM – 5:15 PM – Go Beyond the Numbers: Data Visualization in SharePoint 2010 (with Chris McNulty of Quest)

2. As with any SharePoint conference, I’m really looking forward to meeting new people, and catching up in person with my friends in the community – including folks from BlueMetal’s partners Axceler and NewsGator, and supporters of the SharePoint Maturity Model SurfRay and FPWeb.

3. It’s the official launch of Mark Miller’s book SharePoint 2010 At Work – Tricks, Traps, and Bold Opinions: The Best of EndUserSharePoint.com, for which I’m a chapter contributor along with my esteemed colleagues Kerri Abraham, Eric Alexander, Peter Allen, Marc D. Anderson, Alexander Bautz, Jim Bob Howard, Dessie Lunsford, Waldek Mastykarz, and Laura Rogers.  Many of the contributors will be at the conference and we’ll be signing copies of the book at the FPWeb booth on Wednesday, 2/29, at 11 am.

Are you planning to be at the conference? If so, reach out and let me know – I’d love to connect while we’re there!
