I recently presented at the 7th annual SharePoint Saturday event in Atlanta. For those who aren’t familiar, SharePoint Saturday is a community‐focused SharePoint event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local SharePoint community. The event is unique in that it is “for the community, by the community” and is free for all who attend.
My session focused on “Best Practices and Considerations For Implementing Workflows in SharePoint”, and was geared toward business users who may struggle when it comes to outlining business processes or determining where to get started with automating the most business-critical processes in a way that won’t turn end users’ worlds upside down.
We covered tips and techniques for developing and implementing successful working solutions on the SharePoint platform and took a deep dive into gathering requirements, tools available for development, testing considerations, and implementation best practices to ensure successful user adoption.
While I have attended for several of the past years, this was my first time presenting. It was a great experience for me and was a really great event as always! If you are in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend you checking it out next year (it’s always around May/June). If you are not in the Atlanta area, check your city for a similar event near you. Here’s the main SharePoint Saturday event page with all of the upcoming events.
