Eric Shupps did such a great job with the first SharePoint Saturday Dallas announcement that I am going to borrow his text

Today we are officially announcing the first ever SharePoint Saturday event to be held in Dallas on July 25th, 2009. SharePoint Saturday is a free community-focused SharePoint event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local technical community. Much like user groups and other community oriented events, SharePoint Saturday draws upon the expertise of local SharePoint IT professionals, developers and solutions architects who come together to share their real-world experiences, lessons learned, best practices, and general knowledge with other like-minded individuals.

SharePoint Saturday will be hosted at the Microsoft campus in Las Colinas and is free to anyone who wants to attend. The day starts at 9:00 AM with a short introductory keynote and ends at 4:30 PM. Lunch will be provided and there will be numerous giveaways throughout the day. There will be three primary content tracks – IT Professional, Developer, and Architect – from which attendees may select the topics which most closely align with their job function or area of interest. Each track will consist of five presentations lasting approximately an hour and ranging from introductory, 100-level content to highly-technical, 400-level "expert" sessions.   Speakers will represent a broad cross section of the community and offer a variety of different perspectives and points of view.

SharePoint Saturday is a great opportunity to learn, share and network. Please join us on Saturday, July 25th for a full day of education and excitement. A full session schedule will be posted soon. We look forward to seeing you there!
