At the opening keynote address, the audience was asked to vote on whether SharePoint is: A) a platform; or B) an application. The majority voted for A, which segued nicely in to the address by Bjorn Olstad, an engineer at Microsoft Norway, who spoke about SharePoint 2010 as THE platform for business collaboration, Internet sites and more.
Attendance is not huge (about 750 people, including many SharePoint-focused business consultancies) but all the large organisations are well represented, and we’re hearing many high quality questions and business challenges from attendees.
I had a great chat with German blogger Wolfgang Meidl who runs the website, Sharepoint360.de. He says he gets about 10,000 visits a month to his reviews and news about SharePoint.
I met up with our partner Nintex, who are exhibiting at the stand behind us, not far from the stand of another partner, K2, which has recently expanded their EU team. I am traveling with Adlib's President and CEO, Peter Duff, shown here during setup of our brand-new booth. (Swing by Stand 22 for a chat with a PDF Expert.)
Back to the show - many more Europeans to meet and talk about PDF renditions within their SharePoint platform!
