SharePoint is getting hotter and hotter

Just getting back from the SharePoint Connections conference and I gotta say that SharePoint still is getting hotter and hotter. The more that folks find out about this product, the more they like it and the more they want to know. It’s always great to see people from other sister conferences (like ASP.NET Connections or Sql Connections) wandering into the SharePoint sessions just to see what the fuss is all about and then poking their colleagues and saying “did you see that…” when you are presenting something cool that could make their worklife easier and more productive. I did 3 sessions at this conference and I noticed wonder in at least some people’s eyes in all 3 of them. My sessions were the following:

Design Powerful Workflows with SharePoint Designer

Intelligent Dashboards Made Simple

Control and Manage the Distribution of Your Business Critical Excel Workbooks


So the main concepts that I presented were Excel Services, SharePoint Designer Workflows and Information Policy Management (part of Records Management). Even though the crowds in the sessions were not as great as the sessions I presented at SharePoint Conference (about 90 in each session as opposed to about 700 in the sessions at SPC), I still had a good time at the conference. The fact that it was at a beautiful resort in Orlando helped with the experience as well J
