This past weekend I participated in my first SharePoint Saturday event in Philadelphia, PA but only virtually as I presented a session via Live Meeting. I'm embarrassed that was my first SharePoint Saturday... unfortunately the timing of all the prior events has just not meshed with my calendar for some reason or another.
Finally it all changes on June 26th! That's when Tampa, FL will be holding their SharePoint Saturday which I can finally commit to! Registration is now open so make sure you sign up & follow the Twitter handle @SP_SAT_TPA / #SPSTAMPA.
