Written By: Virgil Carroll
Posted: 9/13/2013

Well the summer is officially over and its time again to go and spread some SharePoint goodness with the world.  This fall I am excited to join my longtime friend, Michael Doyle (@SharePointNinja), for the Ninja Monkey 2013 Eastern European tour.  We have worked with some great people in organizing events in three different countries (Poland, Hungary and Czech Republic) and look forward to seeing the sites, meeting the great people and … oh yeah, speaking!

After these great events, I will be headed a short hop to sunny England to watch an American Football game (what?) and visit my SharePoint friends at the UK SharePoint User Group – Northwest in Manchester.
