In response to my post "Spending more time in Perth"

I was asked:

"These are good.  It’d be nice to have a session on dev in Sharepoint if possible – maybe April?)"

Thanks for that Alan,

As for a Sharepoint presentation/tour great idea the reason I didn’t add it was twofold

  1. I haven’t caught up with Angus to make sure he isn’t already doing something and we aren't working cross purposes
  2. Michael Kordahi (our soon to join us sharepoint guru.) doesn’t start until next (See our team Grows) – so I don’t know about his availability.

That said, it is a great idea I will add it as a tentative until i can catch up with Michael Kordahi and Angus 

A question for you, if Michael Kordahi can not do April….would you be able to use both Scott Barnes (Cold Fusion, Macromedia expert) and Michael Kordahi (Sharepoint) in the same trip in June?
