The hard work and excellent planning was very evident: the pre-conference communication was excellent, the use of technology was inventive (the conference agenda was made available as a OneNote notebook for easy reference and central update and we used Yammer extensively in the months leading up to the conference), the food was great, the Las Vegas night was a lot of fun, and on and on. Putting on a conference like this is far more work than most attendees realize, and this team does it exceedingly well.
Special thanks to Debbie Ireland for inviting me to speak at the two conferences in the first place. I was honored to do it, and it was extremely gratifying to have the chance to meet a number of people who love using SPServices in their day-to-day work with SharePoint.

I thoroughly enjoyed both conferences and am thankful for the opportunity to meet so many excellent SharePoint and intranet professionals. If you didn’t get to Sydney or Auckland the team will be doing it again in Singapore at the end of November 2014 with an extended subject area to include more of Microsoft’s wider product range. I have heard Singapore is pretty big so if you can get there, do it!
