I call Chicago my second home. It’s a three hour drive up I65 but it still feels like a second home. I have family there and I seem to get there at least once a quarter. That’s why I’m happy that SharePoint Saturday : Chicago Edition is scheduled for June 13, 2009. Having participated peripherally in the planning process, I know that there are a ton of great speakers that are going to be there including my fellow MVPs Asif Rehmani, Darrin Bishop, Leonard Mwangi, Paul Schaeflein, and Todd Klindt. But wait, there’s more. (Said in my best late night infomercial voice.) Some of my SharePoint buddies, Chris Geier, Coskun Cavusoglu, Mark Miller, Michael Blumenthal, and Tony Lanni will also be there speaking.
I can honestly say that I’m expecting that this will be the best free SharePoint event in the US this year. If you’re within driving distance of Chicago … you want to make a point to make it to the event.
