Mississauga and Toronto SharePoint User Groups

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.
