SharePoint Saturday Ottawa, anyone?

Official SharePoint Saturday Ottawa Website: http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/ottawa/default.aspx

Official SharePoint Saturday Ottawa Registration: http://sharepointsaturdayottawa.eventbrite.com/?ebtv=C

DO NOT RSVP for this event here. Please use the above links.

I have been searching for a SharePoint Saturday event in Ottawa. Perhaps this Meetup group would be a good candidate to initiate an SSO event on a regular basis. I know a SharePoint MVP from Montreal who would be happy to help get things rolling. Let's chat! For starters, I suggest a Saturday in September and a location in / near downtown Ottawa.

    Well organized, well attended, excellent speakers. It looks like we have been doing this for a while.

    For a first official attempt, I think it was a successful event with many interesting sessions and good speakers.

    I wanted to give everyone an update on the SharePoint Saturday initiative. Things are well under way.
    We have not scheduled it for Dec. 1st. We were shooting for Nov. 24th however with the US holidays and with Serge and his team pushing the date of the Montreal session to Jan/Feb...we have now settled on Dec.
    Registration for the event is now open here: http://sharepointsaturdayottawa.eventbrite.ca/
    Also, be sure to watch the SharePoint Saturday Ottawa webpage for updates, etc. - http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/ottawa/default.aspx

      Question: If the date changes after I have registered with Eventbrite, assuming I'll receive an update?

      August 17, 2012

    • Randy W.

      Thanks Theresa. Yes, you should receive an update. At this point the date is pretty much fully baked, but the only variable is going to be the location. This will be firmed up by the middle of September....but we are going ahead for Dec. 1st.

    Everyone, I wanted to send out just a quick update.
    First off, this is not confirmed but we are looking at the Dec. 1 date for the SharePoint Saturday in Ottawa. Now, this is not finalized however the biggest factor is the facility/location. In parallel Noorez and Nick have been actively connecting us with SharePoint Saturday group and putting plans in place. Stay tuned as we get things a bit more finalized over the next week or 2.

    Wanted to send a quick update to everyone on the topic of SharePoint Saturday. The momentum is building and am hoping to have more tangible updates over the next week or two. Stay tuned for more info shortly.

    I would be happy to help with getting the word out about this, helping organize and setup the sessions and getting some prizes

    July 19, 2012

  • Noorez K.

    Agreed, I would say September at the earliest to give advance notice to the attendees as well as the speakers that might come from out of town

    One last comment here...
    In speaking with Serge, he kindly reminded me that there is a great deal of work in setting up a proper SharePoint Saturday session. He has kindly offered to share information, and to help. However, I did want to set expectations that to do this properly we most likely cannot pull it off for September...however should target early fall to do it right with the right speakers, location, promotion, etc. Agree?

    Thanks Wes.
    First off I have started a discussion thread on what topics people would like to learn about during a SharePoint Saturday. As the goal is to provide value to the members, please take a moment to join the discussion thread to highlight what topics would be of interest to you.

    When we get a firm date for the event I will make a formal request to our contact at Algonquin College.

  • Wes MacDonald changed the location to Algonquin College

    July 18, 2012

  • Noorez K.

    Yes you are right, I think we should do this, I will touch-base with you directly

    Hello Noorez. Thanks for joining the SharePoint Ottawa meetup. I see that you are from Toronto, and although we are still growing we are getting the sharepoint community together here in Ottawa. What may be worthwhile is to find a way to work together to create one community and hopefully not confuse people by having several groups on the go serving the same purpose.

    July 18, 2012

  • Wes M.

    I can ask to see if we can use Algonquin as a location to host the meeting here in Ottawa, we have been using that location for our code camps for the past few years.

    July 18, 2012

  • Randy W.

    Hello Serge. Would love to have a chat with you about this. Can you send me an email rwhitcroft(AT)syntapa.com with your contact details. Would like to see what you are doing for Montreal and then see how we can leverage this to try and help get something going here in Ottawa.
