It’s the final countdown! What a consultant hopes to gain from SPC11.(Via Paul Hunt)

Extracted from the original post It’s Thursday evening and i’m approx 36 hours away from leaving to attend the Microsoft SharePoint conference in Anaheim, Los Angeles. Unfortunately I’m still in a hotel with one more day of client site work to get out the way before I can race home, finish packing and then leave for Heathrow.

The client I’m working with is quite interested in the conference and we were having a conversation today about exactly what I was intending to get out of the week ahead and exactly what benefits my attending the conference brings my business.

Well first and foremost there is a training element, The level 300/400 technical sessions available are some of the deepest dives into the technology that you can get and often go far beyond a training course session that you would see in a general SharePoint training course. In addition there is the ability to pick and choose the sessions that you attend over the course of the week, allowing me to tailor the ‘training’ aspect of the conference to my needs.

Now this approach to training would not suit everyone and I must admit if a client of mine was intending to attend a conference such as this or the Best Practices Conference in London, then I would caution them to attend a more structured course first depending on their level of experience with SharePoint. However for a consultant like myself, this style of training is ideal, especially when you include the post-conference access to the recordings.
