Portuguese SharePoint User Group and Microsoft Events

I’m proud to be a member of the new Portuguese SharePoint User Group (SPUG PT) and I’ll be cross-posting and translating all my future posts to the User Group’s blog (http://www.sharepointpt.org) which will also feature posts from other community members. Be sure to check it out, if you’re a Portuguese speaker.

The User Group is just starting and already has a very strong presence in the first Microsoft events of the year: Road To SharePoint 2010 and TechDays 2010.

Starting with Road To SharePoint 2010, an event dedicated to SharePoint 2010 composed of 19 sessions over 5 different days and aimed at preparing everyone to the arrival of the new SharePoint, we had sessions presented by Rodrigo Pinto (Rumos Professional Services), Luís Calado (Microsoft), Denis Heliszkowski (Microsoft) and Ricardo Calejo (Devscope), on the first two days of the event.

But we still have 3 days to go, on which you’ll be able to attend the session I’ve prepared with Raúl Ribeiro (Create IT) about the use of Business Connectivity Services to create Business Solutions based on Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010, as well as the session on Business Intelligence in SharePoint presented by Rui Romano and Rui Quintino (Devscope), and many others.

Don’t miss it, it’s a great event for anyone who intends to start working with SharePoint 2010 as fast as possible.

Regarding TechDays 2010, it’s the largest technology event of the year in the Microsoft world. A 3-day event with many sessions about all the novelties on Microsoft products including, of course, SharePoint 2010. We still don’t have all the information regarding sessions and speakers, but we already know we can count on sessions by André Lage (Sybase), Raúl Ribeiro (Create IT), David Rosa (Rumos Professional Services), Denis Heliszkowski (Microsoft), Luís Calado (Microsoft), Rodrigo Pinto (Rumos Professional Services) and me (Create IT) :)

I hope I can meet you there.
