One Best Practices Conference down, one to go!

Written By: Virgil Carroll
Posted: 3/20/2011

People of all different skill levels came together from across the country last week to share some great insights and discoveries in the world of SharePoint. It all went down in La Jolla, California for the Best Practices Conference. Hopefully you were able to make it out to enjoy the great speaker line-up and discussions…and the great California weather! I personally came from a long, cold and snowy Minnesota winter, which made the 75 degrees, sunshine and beaches feel that much better! I was hoping the Minnesota winter would be gone by the time I got back, but unfortunately it looks like I'm going to have to wait a little bit longer for it to get up in the 70s in Minnesota.

I hope everyone else enjoyed the conference and the amazing weather. I want to thank everyone that came out and listened to me talk. Hopefully I was able to provide some valuable best practices that you'll be able to take back with you and put to use. As promised, the links to my slide decks are all below. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments on here!

"BI for the Common People"
