Reaching out to the SharePoint Portuguese Community

In my continued pursuits to connect with the SharePoint community around the globe, and recent attempts to connect with SharePoint LATAM, I’m excited to announce two new venues…

I’ll be speaking at TECHED Brasil!  Last year this was the largest Microsoft event in LATAM!

This is my first Teched in South America, but my second speaking gig there (remember SPC Peru 2009? I do!).  I have two sessions lined up for Teched Brazil.  It’s going to be great to finally connect with that community.  Teched Brazil in Sao Paulo is the other Teched in the Americas, and the only one in South America.  You can tell from the Teched Brazil site that it really caters to Portuguese speakers.  Here’s a little bit of information on the conference:

O TechEd deste ano ocorrerá nos dias 13, 14 e 15 de Setembro de 2010, no Expo Center Norte,

Expo Center Norte
Endereço: Rua José Bernardo Pinto, 333, São Paulo – SP

São Paulo, Brasil

· 190 sessões técnicas de alto nível, divididas em 16 trilhas técnicas para Profissionais de TI e Desenvolvedores

Estamos certos de que sua participação irá enriquecer ainda mais o conteúdo técnico do TechEd Brasil 2010, portanto desejamos convidá-lo a ministrar a palestra abaixo

I bet there will be 1600 to 2000 attendees.  Definitely looking forward to the hundreds of SharePoint folks.  I hear they had around 200 at their SharePoint events earlier this year.  Follow my tweets and post event blog.

Here are my sessions at Teched Brazil.

Sessão: OSP306

Descritivo: Nós vamos caminhar por 10 histórias sobre SharePoint que exploraram o melhor dos piores e entender como algumas configurações pode levar a implantação para o fracasso. Joel Oleson vai trazer seus 10 anos de experiência com o SharePoint e dar exemplos do mundo real de como evitar falhas de implantação.

Sessão: OSP302

Você aprenderá como os métodos híbridos podem lidar com a maioria das situações. Não só vai sair com dicas e truques, mas também com as melhores práticas na atualização e migração.

I’m hoping to visit some user groups and Quest customers while in the region either in Sao Paulo or Rio.  Definitely reach out!

The other event I’m doing is a visit to the Comunidade Portuguesa de SharePoint (SPugPT) in Portugal.  The plans are still coming together, but currently looks like it will be on September 29th.

“I’m Rodrigo Pinto, CoFounder of the SPUGPT SharePoint Portuguese User Group here in Lisboa, Portugal.

I’m in sync with Antonio Lage, SharePoint MVP, and we are thrilled, of you coming to portuguese lands.

We are starting to prepare the event for the 29th of September.”

 

I’m definitely looking forward to my trip.  I’m taking some time off for a family trip to Cancun, Belize and Guatemala.  Not sure if I’ll be able to meet up with any SharePoint folks out there, but definitely will continue to practice my Spanish.  After I get back I’ll be working on my Brazilian Visa and laying out my trips in September.  See you soon! 

 

Let me share a few of the great Portuguese SharePoint Resources I’ve come across:

Portuguese Community Hubs:

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.
