For several years I’ve attended the European SharePoint conference and been super impressed by the whole event, from the speaker line-up, session content to the evening attendee events. Steve Smith and the Combined Knowledge crew always put on a massively impressive event.
The conference was held between 11th to 13th of April. This year saw the second running of the ‘Community Track’ focused on real life SharePoint projects and experiences. I was fortunate to secure a slot this year . My session covered my current programme of work for Tesco. This project uses SharePoint 2010 to provide the Tesco group with a new intranet collaboration platform. The design is quite a radical departure from the traditional style of ‘news’ or ‘corporate communications’ focused homepage. The approach is focused on providing a custom homepage centred around the Activity Feed. If you missed my session be sure to watch the DVD.
Here are the slides from my presentation.
It was fantastic opportunity to finally meet so many friends I’ve been chatting to via Twitter and FaceBook for ages face to face. Special thanks go out to Steve Smith, Zoe Watson and all the CK crew for the event, Chris Johnson, Chris O’Brien for his advice and review of my presentation, Tobias Zimmergren, Rob Foster, Eric Shupps and everyone else who made me feel welcome throughout the event.
