I'd like to thank a couple of people for helping out the Toronto SharePoint User Group these past two months. In December we were prize-less until John from CorasWorks (creators of some terrific SharePoint add-ins) dropped in and donated a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate to our monthly prize raffle. Thank-you John!
Thanks to a great pair of organizers (JL and Chris), a raft of sponsors, 30 volunteers (including Luis and Louella from EI), 17 others who came out to present, and over 200 developers, Saturday's Code Camp in downtown Toronto was a great experience for everyone involved!
The SharePoint team has launched a new blog to discuss topics across the SharePoint Products and Technologies family. It started off with a summary of SharePoint's role in Microsoft's collaboration story, a pretty important story to understand if you're in the business. Today they added a good post with links of the role of Business Intelligence in SharePoint with links to a few great related resources like the Excel team's blog and a BI strategy announcements page.
