There's a lot going on this week in the Boston area tech scene, and I wanted to highlight a few of the upcoming events:
Monday, 12/12/11 - The Boston Area SharePoint User Group will meet at a rescheduled time. Richard Harbridge will present "Is Your SharePoint Really Healthy? What’s The Right Prescription?" at 6 pm.
Tuesday, 12/13/11 - Five of my colleagues at BlueMetal Architects will present on Using Windows Azure to extend your applications to Mobile devices. The evening starts at 5:30 pm at the NERD Center in Cambridge; the BlueMetal sessions start at 7 pm.
Thursday, 12/15/11 - the Boston SharePoint Salon will tackle the topic of Big Data - at Tico, on 222 Berkeley St. Boston, from 7 - 9:30 pm.
And if you're tired of Boston...
Friday, 12/16/11 - this is the last day to save $450 on registration for SPTechCon San Francisco in February, and if you use discount code VANBUREN, you'll receive an additional $200 off, for a total discount of $650. Conference information here. I'll be presenting in three sessions: one on SharePoint Maturity, one with Derek Weeks on Business Process Maturity, and one with Chris McNulty on Data Visualizations in SharePoint.
