SharePoint Evolution Conference in London April 2010
We’re now only a couple of months away from the upcoming SharePoint Evolution 2010 conference in London, England. Last year’s Best Practices event was one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended or spoke at. The venue is fantastic – right across from the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey. The Combined Knowledge crew does a great job of organization and production. Best of all, there’s tons of content from speakers who come from every corner of the globe.
I’ll be presenting two sessions at the conference. The first, Customizing the Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Deployment Process, is a repeat of my talk at SharePoint Conference 2009. The second, Unit Testing SharePoint, is a highly anticipated slugfest on Unit Testing between myself and the always-entertaining Andrew Woodward. I’m teasing a bit – Woody and I are good friends and share a lot of the same views on Unit Testing (as in, do it, no matter which camp you’re in). It’s going to be a lot of fun to share the stage with Woody and banter about SharePoint testing. Believe me, you don’t want to miss this one!
As with last year, I will be conducting an unofficial "Redneck Tour of London" for all the US folks who’ve never been to London before (and anyone else who wants to tag along). As my adopted second home city, I’m pretty familiar with all the tourist spots in London, along with a few off-the-beaten-path locations that most folks never get to see. We’ll be doing some of the standard attractions, including Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, The Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Horse Guard’s Parade, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square, and the like, but we’ll also branch out and do some other fun stuff, like the Jack the Ripper Ghost Walk, the HMS Belfast, Covent Garden, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, Benjamin Franklin House and the London Dungeon. Or anywhere else we all feel like going on a whim. Not to mention all the pubs and restaurants I’m well acquainted with J It’ll be two full days of fun in London after the conference, so if you’re planning on coming over be sure to stay through the end of the week. Trust me, nothing is quite so entertaining as watching a gaggle of tourists follow a redneck in big black hat around town. It’s worth coming along just to watch the locals react!
Be sure to hit the conference site and register if you plan on attending. This event WILL sell out and you don’t want to miss it.
See you in London!
