We always have nifty swag to give away. This month though we have something even better. We’ll be giving away a new, unlocked Windows Phone. That’s right… we will be playing heads or tails for (yep, another) Nokia Lumia 800.
About the Presentations and Speakers
Colin Phillips, SharePoint Consultant - itgroove (blog: mmman.itgroove.net)
Title: SharePoint Apps for the End User
Overview: There's been a lot of talk about Apps in the new SharePoint 2013, and a lot of people are still confused about what they are, how they can benefit end users, and why you'd even need them. This presentation will help you understand their value (for both the end-user and the business), how they work in your environment (on premise or in the cloud – Office 365), and will give you a first-hand look at a handful of apps, and how we use them in house (at itgroove) to benefit our own processes. This presentation is meant for business users to understand what Apps mean to them (sorry developers, we've already done a dev session on apps).
Scott Knight - Camosun College
Title: Camosun's Plan for SharePoint 2013
Overview: This presentation will touch on where we are coming from, based on our deployment of SharePoint 2007 and the lessons learned. I will discuss the current project management approach being implemented by the college and how it relates to SharePoint. In addition we will outline the training strategies that Camosun plans on implementing to ensure the success of SharePoint. Finally, I will discuss the role I see SharePoint taking as it relates to the colleges strategic plan for IT.
