Axceler Recap for DevConnections Orlando
Team Axceler is back in the office after a fantastic few days in (sometimes) sunny Florida where we attended DevConnections Orlando 2011. Coming from Seattle, I was one of the few folks happy to welcome the showers and cooler temperatures mid-week, but we were book-ended by beautiful weather. While my primary focus at the event was around two sessions in the SharePoint business and social tracks, Axceler was also an exhibitor, and s I spent a good amount of time talking to customers at the booth. We had strong traffic throughout the event, and were able to finally meet many of our happy customers in person - which is always a treat.
Amidst the many ControlPoint and Davinci Migrator demos, I was able to spend time talking with various partners and SharePoint experts, and capturing additional footage for my video series, The One Thing You Need to Know About SharePoint 2010. I was able to capture footage with Cathy Dew from Summit 7 Systems, Inna Gordin from BA Insight, and Jeff DeVerter from Rackspace, among others.
For the social track, I presented part of an ongoing analysis of competitive social tools in the enterprise space, comparing and contrasting their features to the latest capabilities in SharePoint 2010:
For the business track, my new session explored aspects of migration transformation, focusing on best practices to clean up and reorganize taxonomy, templates, content and configurations before and during migration:
I look forward to participating in two of the upcoming DevConnections Coast-to-Coast events this spring (I'll be presenting multiple sessions in Boston
April 25-27, and San Diego
May 2-4), and their June event (June 13-15) in London
. See you there!
