These types of events have often been very technically focused, so I wasn’t sure how many people would turn out for my sessions on “Mind Mapping Tools for the Information Architect” and “Effective Requirements Gathering Workshops – How to organize and run them”. I was pleasantly surprised when my room filled up nicely (between 40 - 60 people at each session), with quite a few staying for both.
I attended some really interesting sessions as well: - MOSS Search: Why it’s not enough to just turn it on by Nadeem Mitha - Effective Deployment of SharePoint Publishing Sites by Ivan Neganov - Architecture into Implementation: The practical limits of people and SharePoint by Eli Robillard
For those who are looking to download my presentations, they are at the following link:
The items that begin with “Ruven Gotz” are the actual presentations. The rest are PDF’s of Mind Maps that I used as examples.

Congratulations to Eli Robillard and Bill Brockbank (and a ton of other volunteers) for putting together a great event. There were well over 200 attendees and I heard a lot of positive comments from a number of “Happy Campers”.
