I just a few months I’ll be at the 365 EduCon (SPFest) conference in Seattle presenting a full day workshop & few sessions for Microsoft 365 & Azure professional developers!

Not only is this is expected to be a great conference, but I’m especially excited as it’s the first in-person conference for me since the world stopped in early 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I can’t wait to see old friends and interact with attendees at the show!

One of the biggest reasons I’ll like these SPFest shows is the size… it’s an ideal size for the attendees and speakers to interact. This is commonly referred to as the hallway track where attendees and speakers have an opportunity to interact and expand on the topic covered in the session or just general networking stuff. Make sure you take advantage of this!
