For those in the DC/VA/MD Metro Area - SharePoint BootCamp details!

  Asked By: Aiesha    Date: Jun 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 821

SharePoint Resources would like to announce the first ever
SharePoint BootCamp for the DC/VA/MD area. The 10 hour, one day,
event will take place on February 24th in Dulles, VA. This training
is designed as an overall introduction to SharePoint 2007. It will
cover Administration, Development and (almost) everything in-
between. While we cannot make you an expert in one day, the
curriculum is designed to provide real-world, hands-on knowledge
that you can use immediately. The audience for this day long look at
Microsoft's new version of SharePoint is managers, techies and the
merely curious. In other words, there will be something for everyone.

One of our main concerns is to keep the cost low so as to provide
this training to as many people as possible. In light of that, the
full cost for the 10 hours of training, including a gourmet lunch,
is only $200 per person. We have limited space, so please register
early to reserve your spot.

SharePoint, as a platform, has gained in popularity over the last 2
years. There is a huge demand for personnel at every level, from
junior all the way up to senior. Don't miss the boat on the
opportunity to advance your career! SharePoint Resources also
provides job placement services for the more advanced students.

I don't appreciate the spam mails I am receiving and I don't think this is
the proper place to advertise unless this has been suddenly allowed by the
great folks over at Mindsharp.

Thanks for the information on the boot camp. This sounds like it is exactly
what we need. Can you tell me what documentation/resource materials will be
provided at the training?

Are you serious? You don't like his "spam" email, so you email everyone
about your problem with his email?!?

Perhaps a list owner here would like to clarify what the email policies
are, but I for one appreciate information on SharePoint training
courses. Further, someone name Dave Frenkle had just emailed everyone
looking for training availability and Gary sends an email about his
bootcamp. Seems pretty germane to the discussion list.

I would have to agree with you - I was a little surprised at the bluntness
of the email from Mr. Fox. A private email would have been a more
appropriate forum to voice the distaste for his Inbox contents.

I would suggest you let the Mindsharp folks make a decision on this. Spam?
Me? I'm not trying to sell a service or a product. There are other
ways to push this information out. Why not let Dustin Miller send an
email out regarding one of his courses or Shane Young or the dozen or other
so players in this field that provide training. I have never seen a blatant
advertisement yet from Todd or Bill with regards to Mindsharp services they
offer here and that in itself should dictate to all that this is not a place
to post advertisements. From my understanding this group is a community
based entity that fosters excellent ways to put out a Question and get a
decent answer.. If we as a group allow this type of advertisement to be
generated and pushed out why is it ok to ban product vendors that try and
hawk their goods here. There is a place for everything and a Forum such as
this just sends a bad message.

Oh and with regards to sending out individual messages.. I agree I could
have sent an email to him as I could have to the two gentleman that
criticized my post but as luck has it reply here means reply to all.

This is a support forum, and I feel advertising is inappropriate here.
Something like that may start off innocent, but can quickly spin out of
control with everyone using a support forum like this to promote their
businesses, and then you have lost the value of this forum.

If one person sees someone else sending out an ad, they may
think it is acceptable and appropriate, and then they do it.

I am not an administrator over this list, this is just my personal opinion.
Let's not get ugly here with each other, it provides no value.

I like to check the emails I get from the group
and sort through them and reply to them if I feel I can help. I do find it
hard sometimes to have to sort through "spam" emails that don't have
anything to do with the forum. My personal opinion is if you need to come
into a forum to push your business then you may have to re-visit your
marketing strategy. I know it may sound harsh but I love the forums as it is
a place where we (all of us) can share ideas on how to help each other out.
That's just my personal opinion.
