Cloudy with a Chance of Share Point

Join SharePoint Pro for Cloudy with a Chance of SharePoint, a free online one-day conference for developers and administrators of SharePoint products and technologies. This conference brings industry experts straight to your computer, offering free, technical SharePoint training.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask live questions via our platform’s interface, network with other attendees, and chat directly with vendors in the Exhibit Hall. Various benefits also include prize giveaways, announcements, and more!

You'll be able to join experts David Chennault, Michael Noel, Todd Baginski, and others for a series of free technical sessions for developers and administrators that will help you get the most value from SharePoint.

  • Join David Chennault for “Governance for SharePoint in the Cloud.” In this session, you will learn about the possible effects the cloud will have on your users and SharePoint whether you choose to move to the cloud or not. Dave Chennault, a Microsoft Technology Specialist in SharePoint, will share a governance model and examples from his book, "SharePoint Deployment and Governance using CobiT 4.1: A Practical Approach," to help you properly prepare for the upcoming Office 365 and SharePoint in the Cloud.
  • Join Michael Noel for “Migrating SharePoint from On-Premises to Hosted Cloud Solutions”. This session focuses on a discussion of the best practices, tips and tricks, and potential pitfalls involved with a migration of a SharePoint environment to a hosted cloud solution.
  • Join Todd Baginski for “Cloud Architecture and Application Development for Developing SharePoint Online Solutions”. During this session you'll see demos that show how to call Azure services from SharePoint Online, how to call on-premise services via Windows Azure from SharePoint Online, and how to create line-of-business applications with SQL Azure and Azure Worker Roles.
  • And more!

Cloudy with a Chance of SharePoint provides everything that an in-person, peer-to-peer-to-expert event offers -- without the travel, without the cost, and without the time away from your desk!
