My colleague, Mark A'Bear ran a SharePoint day in March, for schools to hear from different companies that were developing software sitting on top of the SharePoint web portal. In all, 120 schools attended, and he's now running a second day, involving a further 20 partners. They'll be showing examples of Search, MIS, ePortfolio, VLE and Library Management applications on SharePoint. The event will focus on ‘show’ rather than ‘tell’, and there's plenty of chance to talk to people in more detail - either from the software partners or from Microsoft. Oh, and it's free!

It's on the 25th June, at the Thames Valley Microsoft Campus in Reading. To register call the booking desk on on 0870 166 6680, and quote the event reference number, (big breath) 1032338563, or register online
