UK User Group Meeting in Glasgow, Scotland March 28th

Steve Smith of Combined Knowledge is organizing an informal UK User Group meeting in Glasgow, Scotland on March 28th. If you are in the area, make plans to attend and support the growing UK SharePoint community. After all, there's beer and food involved - can't miss out on that! Go here for more information.

BTW, the User Group meeting in London on the 22nd was an excellent affair. Tip o' the hat to Riaz Ahmed for doing a bang-up job presenting a Search deep-dive and accessibility overview (Riaz, if you're out there, post a comment with your blog URL so I can link you up). More than 75 people showed up (although how many were actually there for the free beer and pizza is impossible to determine). C'mon Dallas, we've some catching up to do - the UK gang is making us look bad!

SharePoint User Group Meeting in London March 22nd

Just a quick reminder to all UK SharePointers that the user group meeting is this Thursday, March 22nd, at LBi in London. Go here for more information.

In case you've never attended, the UK meetings are some of the best user group gatherings I've ever been to (and I've been to many in my time). Nick Swan does a great job organizing the event, the participation is high (200+ attendees at the last meeting in February), and the content is excellent. If you live or work in the UK and SharePoint is our thing (why else would you be reading this blog???), I highly recommend attending. And be sure to say "Hullo!" when you arrive - I'm easy to spot, just look above the crowd for the 6'5" Texan wandering about ;-)
