I just found out that tomorrow night’s .NET user Group has been moved into town to coincide with the SharePoint conference. Although SSW have sent out notifications of this, I expect there will be some people who still come to North Ryde.

The details of the new location and time are (from http://www.ssw.com.au/ssw/NETUG/Default.aspx):

Session Date Session Name Location Description Presenter
Wednesday 16th May from 5:30pm - 7:00pm Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 Hilton Hotel,
488 George Street, Sydney

**DIFFERENT LOCATION THIS MONTH + EARLIER**

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

The SharePoint Conference is coming to town between May 14 and 16 and anyone who is anyone is going to be there. The Sydney SharePoint User Group has joined with the Sydney .NET User Group, and managed to sneak in to the event to host the May User Group session.

The May .NET User Group meeting will be a Q&A session with Mike Fitzmaurice and Joel Oleson, both Microsoft Technical Product Managers for SharePoint Products and Technologies. You might remember Joel from his hugely popular User Group presentation last September. By all accounts, this promises to be another "standing room only" event.

Mike Fitzmaurice and Joel Oleson
Wednesday 16th May from 7:00pm - 8:00pm Windows Powershell Hilton Hotel,
488 George Street, Sydney

Windows Powershell (7pm-8pm)

Dave Glover will also be presenting Windows Powershell

Microsoft Windows PowerShell command line shell and scripting language helps IT Professionals and Developers achieve greater productivity and automation and runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server "Longhorn". The shell includes an interactive prompt and a scripting environment that can be used independently or in combination. Unlike most shells, which accept and return text, Windows PowerShell is built on top of the .NET common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework, and accepts and returns .NET objects. This fundamental change in the environment brings entirely new tools and methods to the management and configuration of Windows, systems and business solutions.

The session is very interactive, lots of demos including working with the new Office Open XML File Formats with PowerShell, very cool indeed!!
