SharePoint UK User Group Nottingham February 2011

When: Thursday, February 3rd
Where: Strelley Hall, Nottingham

Session 1: - Matt Groves - What does the Forefront suite mean to SharePoint

Matt Groves will introduce the Forefront suite (covering the entire suite but focussing on UAG and FIM) and explain how they can benefit a SharePoint deployment by covering some common scenarios. He will include a very brief demo (after sacrificing a chicken!!).

Matt will end his session with a brief overview of 'doing a User Group presentation' – hopefully to inspire you to have a go yourself!!

Session 2: - John Timney - Planning Roles and Salaries for 2010 Professionals

Sharepoint 2010 is simply put, nothing like Sharepoint 2007! It is vastly more scalable, significantly more complex, and hugely appealing as an information management hub. A consequence of the successful re-architecture of the product to such a strategic hub product and the core of the Microsoft tools strategy is that programmes and projects, and consequently employers and recruiters need to think carefully about the new range of planning roles and skillsets required to satisfy a successful end to end delivery of Sharepoint 2010. To compound this, salaries for Sharepoint 2010 Professionals across the board have increased dramatically by as much as 20% as organisations perform a land grab on experienced staff, realising that those better placed will not only weather this skills storm but grab a host of emerging new business opportunities. Recruiters don't get it, nor does HR, so what will you demand as your next planning role in your Sharepoint 2010 career path, and what salary range should you expect as a Sharepoint 2010 professional?

In readiness for the forthcoming SharePoint Best Practices Conference in London on April 11th, we will also have a prize draw for some goodies including... a FULL 6 DVD set (18 days of content) from the SharePoint Evolutions Conference 2010! The DVD has pdf, ppt, mp3 and video of all sessions held at the conference - quite a reference for any SharePoint professional!

Following SharePint there will be a ShareCurry at the local Indian for those who are up for it.
