TechEd 2011 Presentation Ideas

TechEd 2011 USA is coming up in May in Atlanta. I went to last year’s conference as a Learning Ambassador for SharePoint in Microsoft’s Technical Learning Pavilion.

This year, I’ve noticed that the organizers are taking session preferences in to mind on the TechEd 2011

As an organizer of the San Antonio SharePoint User Group, I get the opportunity to meet lots of new members of the SharePoint Community.
