This weekend I had the pleasure of speaking at SharePoint Saturday Cincinnati. It was a really well organized event with speakers coming from as far away as Chicago, Texas, Georgia, Indiana, Canada, and even England. However, it wasn’t just the speakers willing to travel, there were attendees coming from all over Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and even Tennessee!
Unfortunately, Bill Baer wasn’t able to attend in person (family reasons) but he got up super early and delivered a top notch keynote virtually.

Many of these slides are original but several have been adapted from other sources (mostly Ignite).
I had a great time! SPS Cincinnati had great organizers, great sponsors, great speakers, and great attendees! If you missed it, be sure to be on the lookout for it next year.
