I love Spring. Why you may ask? Is it because Western New York has finally begun to thaw? Nope, thanks to our friend El Niño we’ve been toasty all winter long! Maybe it’s because flowers are starting to bloom? What flowers? I don’t exactly have a green thumb. Okay, maybe it’s due to the loss of an hour of precious sleep? Definitely not. In fact, that is an absolutely horrible part of Spring in the United States…
It’s because it is that time of year again when many of my favorite tech conferences are held! You’ve got Microsoft running the dev-centric Build (/b) in San Francisco as well as the C-suite focused Envision (I’ll be there as well so check back for a write up soon!) down in the Big Easy (aka New Orleans, LA).
But, another favorite conference of mine, SharePoint Fest (SPFest), is headed to a town many of you know an love (or despise?) Washington, DC! The DC edition of this popular SharePoint conference draws many talented experts (such as my governance guru, Sue Hanley or fellow Montreal native and SP wizard Ben Niaulin) that will be sharing incredibly useful information that can help improve the quality of your SharePoint implementations.
The conference will be held in April at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
Plus, if you register with the code Orluk200 you’ll get $200 off the cost of a Gold or Platinum conference pass. Please note that while the company I work for, Nintex, is sponsoring, I receive no remuneration if you use this code so enjoy guilt free!
Oh and I’ll be presenting two sessions at the event:
WF 201 – SharePoint Adoption Broken? Learn how to fix it with Workflow and Forms
Workflow and Forms in SharePoint can be used to solve business and institutional challenges, particularly user and business adoption. As we attempt to implement these solutions by automating processes we are often presented with difficult decisions such as when to leverage out of the box functionality, adopt no-code solutions or develop custom applications. In this session we will discuss commonly encountered process problems and how to overcome them, the business need to support integration across platforms and how to address an ever expanding mobile workforce.
