New Zealand Comm SP Conf, Australia SharePoint Tour and TechEd Africa

Have you heard about all the conferences going on in June?  SharePoint Saturday’s across the U.S. and the SPTechConn. I’m grounded for the month of June.  Staying in Seattle/Redmond, keeping myself busy with baby, family and NDA, doing a lot of writing, you should see the next paper in the Governance papers.

July I’m back on the road… I just got off a conference call with the Quest folks helping organizing my Australian SharePoint tour following the New Zealand SharePoint Conference.  I’m getting very excited about my next trip which will begin in Wellington at the New Zealand Community SharePoint Conference 2009.  The speaker lineup is looking very impressive.  If you’re in New Zealand and a SharePoint fan, I expect to see you there. 🙂

The following week July 6-10, I’ll be making my way across Australia in Sydney for a special SharePoint event, then Brisbane SharePoint User group, a special event in Melbourne, and round out the week at the SharePoint User Group in Perth.  Hoping to fit in some time touring in Western Australia, Spending a lot of well spent time on the fabulous SharePoint site:  Dates times and events all TBD with more detail to come. (Subject to change.) Contact me on twitter @joeloleson if you have any questions or want to discuss being on the panel at the events in SYD or MEL.

As well TechEd Africa 2009 (in Durban, South Africa) is now confirmed for August.  I’ve got 3 sessions and working out details for visiting a usergroup or 2.  Looks like a fun summer ahead.  How ironic is it I’ll be going to the Southern Hemisphere where it’s winter during the summer in the US?  Eric Harlan and I are teaming up on this one.  Zlatan and Michael Donovan, I’m really looking forward to it.  Will be great to see how the SharePoint MVPs and SharePoint community in South Africa have fun.

Traveling is my passion. My quest to visit every country in the world while fully employed, raising a family and keeping my marriage healthy. I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. When not traveling, I'm living in paradise in sunny southern California working at Blizzard Entertainment, the world's most successful video game company in the world.
