The most recent StackExchange blog post, Supporting Community Conferences, talks about supporting community members in exchange for promoting the site... possibly even by subsidizing your trip to a conference!

Now, it’s up to you to raise a discussion on meta to determine which conferences, seminars, conventions, events, or meetups appeal to your community and would be a good way to publicize how great your community is to people who love this stuff as much as you do, but have probably never heard of your site. Or Stack Exchange.

Which SharePoint events would appeal to you? Who would be interested in going/speaking?

For UK readers, the next big thing happening here is SharePoint Saturday UK, on November 12th: http://sharepointsaturday.org/uk/default.aspx

Otherwise, the main conference for the UK is the European Best Practices Conference normally held in April: http://sharepointbestpractices.co.uk/

  • Yeah, SharePoint Saturday would be a good opportunity. Jim, can you have a word?

  • I have confirmation as of today by @dori that SE will cover my expenses for speaking at SPSUK Commented Sep 6, 2011 at 12:02
  • Awesome. Yeah, I was finishing up for a 2 week wedding vacation just after I posted that xD Also, I live like 10minutes from the venue, so it's better that someone else get the bonuses of representing SE from afar.

Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2011

Microsoft® SharePoint® Conference 2011 is the most comprehensive event in the world dedicated to SharePoint and related technologies.

I think this is THE conference to go to for SharePoint.

    Maybe we should have an informal meetup - SharePint Overflow!

SharePoint Saturday the Conference DC is happening state side next week. Apparently they are expecting over 3000 attendees.

I belive Chris Beckett has a session there.


Your local SharePoint Users Group. For example, the St. Louis SharePoint Users Group.

I think this would be a great way to get more experts involved.
