Kudos for Microsoft and all the Exhibitors that contributed to the success of this years SharePoint Conference. A lot of really great sessions and surprisingly close to 8,000 people this year. Close to double the size of last year and very close to the size of TechEd (9,000). Will the SharePoint conference surpass TechEd, I think it just might. SharePoint is application platform more than ever.
Not only did my team and I find a wealth of great content at the conference but had a blast at all the after events. There was something going on every night. The one big social was the 80’s party which had Huey Lewis and the News and 80’s stuff to play with(goofy 80’s sun glasses, classic arcades & XBox arcade games)
The networking socials were a hit as well, a few I went to was at the Mandalay poolside (PointBridge), Eye Candy x2 (Intelligent Effects and SharePint), Ghost Bar (CreativeMaven) and House of Blues (Catapult).
Thanks to dinnouti for all the great pictures.
RBA Consulting went all out with a suite at the Hardwood Suite in the Palms Casino! This suite that is famous for having stars from Hollywood stay has a half court basketball court, a pool table, professional locker rooms, built in bar, extra large jacuzzi tub, two master bedrooms, three extra large beds on the court that you can pull down, and two large lounge areas. Its about 10,000 square feet and two stories. If you want to stay there it will only set you back 25k…
On top of all this a good friend of mine got married in Vegas, Congrats Rob!
