I’ve been meaning to get connected to the local SharePoint community for some time now. I’ve heard good things about the Toronto SharePoint Users Group (TSPUG), and last night I decided to get out to a meeting. Savash Alic from Microsoft Canada was out to give the first peaks at SharePoint 2010. I had gotten to the SharePoint conference last week in Las Vegas so I had heard a much of the information, but there was just so much content in Vegas that there was no way you could get to it all. Savash did a great job at hitting some of the highlights. That is always a challenge, as SharePoint has become so big, there is no way you could remotely touch on it all in 90 minutes.
If you’re interested in joining the community, I would encourage you to check out their site at http://www.tspug.com. And for those of you that are in the west end and would rather not make the trek downtown, there is also a new Mississauga SharePoint User Group getting going. I missed their inaugural meeting this past Monday, but their site is being graciously hosted by the Toronto group at http://www.tspug.com/mississauga. I plan on getting involved there as well, as we are based in Mississauga, right across from the Microsoft Canada offices.
