Registration is now open for the Project Conference 2014!
Go to http://www.msprojectconference.com/ for full details, as well as the announcement on the Project Blog – and there are still a few days left if you want to suggest content or session ideas! Ends September 30th! I hope to be presenting if my session suggestions get accepted. More troubleshooting stuff – as well as plenty more information on Project Online.
Also coming up we have some regional Office and Project Ignite Summits!
The Ignite Summits are a series of 3 day workshops for Microsoft's most valued customers and partners providing deep-dive technical readiness on all productivity workloads from Microsoft product experts.
Tracks include Office 365, Developer, Exchange, Project, SharePoint, Visio/Visio Services and Yammer. During the Summit, you will also have the opportunity to interact and learn from your industry peers and representatives from Microsoft.
I have the good fortune to be presenting the Project stream at the Dubai event. Looking forward to seeing friends old and new at the Project Conference and the Ignite Summit. And if you are not able to get to either we do have recorded content from the previous run of Ignite trainings - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/projectserver/jj906608. 11 modules and nearly 60 videos taking you right through Project 2013, Project Server 2013 and Project Online.
