Free USPJ Academy Webinar Monday June 28 – Gathering User Requirements for SharePoint

OK, so the cat’s out of the bag. The first USPJ Academy open lecture will be free and open to all. Initially, we intended to keep this event a bit low-key and limited to students only, but we’re so confident in the platform now that we’ve decided to just jump in.

Another insanely cool thing: We’ve also decided to make this first event free for all. That’s right, the normal price for these open lectures is $97, but this first time, you can attend without paying a single cent. Or penny. Or whatever currency is really small where you live.

The first time is always free, right?

Regardless, the topic for this first lecture is user requirements in SharePoint, and the lecture is held by the SharePoint project management guru Dux Raymond Sy. If you don’t know who Dux is, you’ve either been sleeping a lot lately or you’re not on twitter, but in either case, Dux is known in the community as a brilliant speaker and an absolute mastermind of project management.

The session, for which you can register now, happens on Monday June 28 at 1800 CEST, so you’re short on time if you want to get in. We have a limited number of seats available, and it’s been filling up very fast today.

Don’t just sit there, get over there and sign up!

Fast Track to SharePoint Feature Generation Webcast Available

As I wrote last week in my plea for your support in the Washington DC SharePoint Saturday food drive this weekend, I will speak at the conference. However, despite what some of you may have been lead to believe, I will not be in DC, but rather deliver my session as a web cast.

The good news for all those who are now crying bitter tears for not getting to see me live is that the web cast is now available. And the even better news is that it is available to everyone, not just the SPDC attendees.

So, if you want some tips and tricks to speed up your SharePoint development, stop by the webcast now and sacrifice 47 minutes of your time :-)

SharePoint Saturday DC: I will speak

I usually don’t announce speaking engagements, but this time I have an important message. I will be speaking at SharePoint Saturday DC. If you don’t know what SharePoint Saturday is, well, it’s a one day SharePoint event in different cities in the US. You can read all about it on

That was not the important message.

The important message is:

SharePoint Saturday will be holding a food drive contest to support local charities. Dux Raymond, the mastermind behind SPSDC, came up with the brilliant idea to have attendees and others donate food, canned foods, which will then be distributed to charities in the DC area.

So, what’s in it for you? Hey! It’s charity! There shouldn’t be a need for motivation.

However, to make it a bit more desirable to donate, the 20 people to donate the most canned food will get to spend one hour of one-on-one time with one of several SPSDC speakers, including yours truly. Just ship those cans to Dux, and you can look forward to spending one hour of intense brain-picking with some of the industry’s leading experts.

Or me, if you would like that instead :-)

Here is my request, from all of you: If you are able, please donate whatever canned goods you can, and help out those who may be less fortunate.

I also encourage you to follow SharePoint Saturday DC on Twitter, and of course, feel free to follow me as well.

You can check out the SharePoint Saturday DC charity page to learn all the details and see a special message from Dux.
