Finally we’re getting SharePoint Saturday to Stockholm! Next year in January, or to be more precise the 25th of January 2014, the global SharePoint Saturday event will come to central Stockholm and World Trade Center.
What is a SharePoint Saturday?
SharePoint Saturdays are a free events that happens in cities around the world, unfortunately most of them are on the other side of the pond. But once in a while we see these great events pop up in Europe. It’s free in that meaning that it is organized by volunteers, the speakers do it because they have nothing better to do on Saturdays and there is no entrance fee and if you’re lucky you can get some swag as well! But, the events are sponsored, but just to get a good venue and of course the accompanying SharePint after a full day of sessions.
SharePoint Saturday Stockholm
As I said, now for the first time we will have our first SharePoint Saturday here in Stockholm. The event is organized by my colleague Hannah Swain, Mattias Einig and fellow MCM Erwin van Hunen – a great bunch of committed people They are currently setting up the speakers, agenda, venue and all of gazillion things that needs to be done. The event will be held at World Trade Center, which is right in the middle of Stockholm and as close as you can get to all the communications.
You can be a speaker!
One of the key things, and what I really like with these events, is that everyone can and should apply for a speaker slot. It’s a great opportunity to practice your speaking skills, learn more about how it is to contribute to the community, get your name out there and perhaps boost your ego a bit. I know that there are lots of people, including shy Swedes, that can, will and should be on our very first SharePoint Saturday as a speaker. Don’t just sit there – go and submit your sessions proposals right away!
I’m really looking forward to meet all of you there!
