SharePoint Saturday Dayton Slides

Written By: Virgil Carroll

Thanks to everybody that came out to hear me speak at SharePoint Saturday Dayton. I was glad to take part in this inaugural event. Though the trip up was kind of interesting due to interesting Ohio weather, the event was well attended and I definitely saw some SharePoint enthusiasm in the Dayton community. I especially enjoyed one of the most well attended SharePints I've attended in a while. It was good to see 30-40 people join us after the event for some drinks, food and socializing.

Thanks to all who organized the event, including Sean McDonough, who despite the guff I give him, is one of the finest members of our community. You could definitely tell Sean has an appreciation for those that travel in as he was in constant communication with the speakers, keeping us informed of latest details and need-to-knows!

It has been a long time since I'd been to Dayton (back in my grad school days), so it was great to get a chance to visit again and relive some memories.

Next up for me is SharePoint Saturday Toronto on July 7th then a much deserved break (at least I think so) until late in September when HMC will be helping host SharePoint Saturday Michigan again this year on the 29th. Hope to see some of you there!

As promised, here are the links to my slide deck.
