SharePoint Saturday Arabia Updates

Good morning, afternoon, evening

This is a “warm up” note to let you know how Live Online SharePoint Saturday Arabia is going to work (hopefully).

There will be two simultaneous sessions running each hour; one in Arabic and the other in English. 4Thesessions schedule will be posted next Monday at most onSharePoint4Arabs.com, on the registration page and onSharePointSaturday.org/Arabia. Participants will choose a session each hour. They are welcome to switch back and forth between sessions. The session descriptions and speakers are available atSharePointSaturday.org/Arabia.

The first session starts at 7:00am GMT+0. Marwan Tarek and I will do the intros together and then present a short keynote talk to get everything started. All the registrants will receive the login information and the live meeting URL during the next week.

In order to hear the presentations, you will need speakers or headphones. THERE IS NOT CONFERENCE CALL DIAL IN NUMBER since this is an international event. Everything will be done over your computer.

I would like also to seize this opportunity and thank all our sponsors, I have announced all about the giveaways and the raffles on twitter last week but for those who are not following the hashtag #SPSArabia, here are they :

  • Our platinum sponsor “USPJ Academy” is offering 20 copies of “Introducing SharePoint 2010” journal issue as raffles. This issue, spanning a massive 180 pages, is the first independent book on SharePoint 2010 available on the market.
  • SharePoint-Videos.com is offering one yearly subscription (worth $199.50) as a raffle.
  • TekPub is providing free monthly subscription to all SharePoint Saturday Arabia attendees.
  • Telerik is offering one premium collection license as a raffle.

Please keep an eye on http://www.sharepointsaturday.org/arabia and follow me on twitter (@aymanelhattab) for up to the minute updates.

Sincerely, thanks for participating in this event. We are doing our best to make the presentation process as transparent as possible.

Looking forward to a great event.

Cairo Code Camp 2010, A Success Story

CairoCodeCamp 2010 was a phenomenal success story, i couldn’t imagined it better. I’m really proud of the great efforts done by dotnetwork guys. Thank you guys and hope to speak in each and every event organized by you!

As you might know, I presented there a session titled “What’s New in SharePoint Designer 2010?”,  the attendees were wonderful, interactive and passionate about SharePoint and their questions were extremely essential for the full understanding of the new enhancements in SPD 2010.
