SPTechCon Austin 2015 Wrap-Up

SPTechCon Austin 2015 Wrap-Up

Marc Anderson

A splendid time was had by all at the inaugural Austin, TX version of the venerable SharePoint Technology Conference, usually known as SPTechCon. There was a tangibly different energy in the air at this SPTechCon. I'm sure some of that had to do with the new venue, but there seemed to be a bit more to it than that.

My friends at BZ Media did a wonderful job ? as always ? with the conference. David Rubinstein, Stacy Burris, Katie Serignese (soon to be Katie Flash!), and the whole team really know what they are doing and it shows.

In addition to the two session I presented, I was honored to be a part of an "expert panel?, discussing 'SharePoint at the Crossroads'. I think SharePoint always seems to be at some sort of crossroads, so there's always a lot to talk about.

After hours, we had a meeting of the SharePoint beards and thought deep thoughts.

And what would a trip to Austin be without a stop at Salt Lick? BTW, that dude sitting behind Joel is Chris Tomich. He was there all the way from Perth, Australia (via San Francisco, where he's spending a few months). Chris is one of my SharePoint heroes (not to slight anyone else), and it was awesome to have the chance to spend a bunch of time with him in Austin.

The 'Q:

Empty Plates

Oh, and I presented two sessions. Thanks to everyone who joined me for them. The slides are up on Slideshare if you'd like to take a look.

The session I did on Content Types was a new one for me, and I had an unbelievably large and engaged crowd. Clearly this is a topic area where there need to be more resources available.
