I can’t believe it’s almost here. Less than a week to SPC. To help you all (and honestly myself) keep track of where I’ll be and when I’ll be there I put my schedule in this blog post. As I get more things nailed down I’ll edit this post. You can also put the sessions in your calendar on MySPC. Don’t forget you can also set up meetings in MySPC. I’m going to be fairly busy, but I’ll try to accept meetings if I get some requests. I’ll also be hanging out in the Rackspace booth, booth 108, so be sure to swing by there. We’ve got some cool games and giveaways. You won’t want to miss it. And as always, if you see me wandering around, don’t at all be afraid to come up and introduce yourself and say, “Hi.” I’m pretty friendly.
Sunday March 2nd
7:15 PM – 7:30 PM – Just chatting about Workflow at the Nintex booth (Booth 635)

You’ve built your SharePoint 2013 farm and gotten it configured just how you want it. But how do you know if it can stand up to the load your users are going to throw at it? In this session we’ll show you how to use Visual Studio 2013 to load test your SharePoint farm. We’ll show you how to bring your farm to its knees to find out where your farm’s limitations are before your users do. Then we’ll show you what changes to make your farm scale higher and knee-buckle free.

8:00 Netcast Hooligan Breakfast (Conference Breakfast)
We'll meet outside the breakfast hall around 8:00 and grab some breakfast together.
Forget dogs, PowerShell is a SharePoint admin’s best friend. PowerShell lets us to do our everyday tasks faster and with less error. It also lets us do things we’d never dreamed of before. Get a brief overview of PowerShell, then dig in to some PowerShell scripts you can take home and use on your farm.
Have you heard all your SharePoint Admin friends talk about how great SharePoint 2013 is, yet your farm is still running at SharePoint 2010, or even worse, SharePoint 2007? Then this session is for you. In this session Todd and Shane will go over the upgrade strategies to SharePoint 2013. Then they’ll dig into some fun stories about how they’ve done battle upgrading SharePoint so that you won’t have to. There will be lots of tips, and lots of fun, and in the end you’ll be ready for anything the upgrade to SharePoint 2013 can throw at you.
I’m also hoping to do a live recording of my Netcast there. When I get that timeslot I’ll update this post.
