SharePoint Saturday Arabia version 2– 11th December 2010
SharePoint Saturday Arabia is back –11 Dec 2010
This week is TechWeek in Microsoft Egypt from Sunday till Thursday. TechWeek is exciting because it brings different customers from different domains together to attend awareness sessions about the different Microsoft Technologies.
There are two tracks, Business Productivity, including Office, Exchange and of course SharePoint and the other was Security and Management, from 9 to 5.
Yesterday I was there, presenting an overview on SharePoint 2010. Had great audience and lots of questions. Microsoft Egypt did a great job setting up full gear labs with 8 GB servers that ran the IW Virtual Machine.
It is free to attend, so jump in if you can.
I enjoy it every time. Looking forward for the next one.
I love the community, not any community but the SharePoint user community, particularly in Egypt, the Egypt SharePoint User Group. I love all attendees, regular members, speakers and of course the organizing committee.
I am proud to be part of this group and to be around such marvelous people.
With every event in EGYSUG, I am privileged to know new interesting people. Its an outstanding, splendid and overwhelming experience. I get the chance to talk to them, assist them, share my expertise with them and most important learn from everybody. I think this what it’s all about, about sharing and learning from others.
All this was yesterday, in our launch SP2010 Launch party. After the introduction by Kailash, Ayman El Hattab presented the new cool Visual Studio tools for SharePoint, Shady Korshed dug into Web Parts development in SP 2010, Hesham Mortada gave us a tour around the all new PowerPivot. After we finally got streaming for the keynote I presented Office Web Apps and Marwan Tarek ended it up with the cool PowerShell cmdlets for SharePoint. We had also quizzes and giveaways for our attendees.
I really enjoyed the event. I hope you did too. See you sooooon!
Thanks for all the attendees and members for sharing your time with us.
Special thanks to the organizing committee.
Please stay tuned to our Facebook group - EGYSUG for photos and updates

Thanks to our sponsors
As expected and follow up from the first event, this one was fantastic and well organized. With the follow up emails and reminders, Rajendera and the rest of SPSIndia team did a great job.
I was in Senegal, connecting to my virtual machine hosted in Western Europe broadcasting to India. It was a slow connection but everything went just fine.
With all the new fun in SharePoint 2010, today I presented “Word on the Server” - The Word Web App and Word Automation Services.
Hope you enjoyed the presentation and the event. You can find the slides on slide share, Word on the Server and the code snippets on my SkyDrive > Public > SPSIndia
I had to the pleasure and honor to be part of this event, as a listener and speaker. I would like to thank SPS India team and the sponsors for such an event. I am sure the team will announce the availability of the resources to stay tuned to the SharePoint Saturday India site - and follow #SPSIndia on Twitter.
Personal note :Meanwhile in Cairo, another great event was exploding on Twitter TEDxCairo, the first TED event in Egypt. Everybody there was teasing with all those tweets and hastags #TEDxCairo. I almost cried.
Au revoir from Senegal (I will be back home next week)
I will be speaking in SharePoint Saturday India – Word on the Server, May 8th 2 pm - 3 pm IST (GMT+5.30) around 10.30 Cairo time. This area is not only new to the SharePoint world but also interesting. It really opens a new possibility to the kind of solutions you can do.
What’s different about this events that it is done on two days
- April 24th 2010 - 9 am to 5 pm IST ( GMT + 5.30 ) – agenda
- May 8th 2010 - 9 am to 5 pm IST ( GMT + 5.30 ) – agenda
Moreover the SharePoint Saturday India organizing team would be donating all the sponsorship from the event, to the Institute for Blind, Chandigarh, India. It is a very small step from Indian SharePoint Community to help for the great cause.
Please support the event, for the right cause.
This is a must see and free, Register Now!

See you all there!
I am Speaking
First, because I am speaking :). Although this is a strong reason for you to attend but not the only one.
First of Its Kind
SharePoint Saturday Arabia , (SPS Arabia for short) is first of its kind. It is the first live SharePoint Saturday targeting but not restricted to SharePoint enthusiasts in Arab region.
Following the same steps as its elder sister SharePoint Saturday EMEA, SPS Arabia will have:
Just look at the elite list of speakers. They are from all over the globe, from USA, Europe, Saudi, Egypt, Jordan and Australia; MVPs, Developers, Consultants, Enthusiasts, they come in all different flavors in order to share their knowledge, learn new things, mingle with the community and have fun.
What's really special about SPS Arabia that it is has two channels, in Arabic and English. So you better keep switching back and forth, in and out of the different chat rooms. Get the best out of it. I am sure that I will do, even when I am moderating. (don’t tell Ayman though).
If you are in the Arab region, well even if you are not, if you are into SharePoint, if SharePoint is your business and have no major surgery, do attend. The sessions will be recorded and posted on SPS Arabia and SharePoint4Arabs.com, but the online experience is different.
Sponsors and Giveaways
An indication of how important is the event, here are the sponsors
- USPJ Academy is offering 20 copies of Introducing SharePoint 2010 journal issue as raffles. This issue, spanning a massive 180 pages, is the first independent book on SharePoint 2010 available on the market.
