Earlier today I was lucky enough to present at Melbourne’s 2nd SharePoint Saturday event, with a session entitled ‘Ten reasons why your organisation should consider Project Server 2010’. The audience was a good mix of seasoned Project Server users and people just interested in the general capabilities.
In a attempt to leverage some of the excellent social media tools out there, the presentation was linked to Twitter with automatic tweets of further information being sent out at the same time on my twitter account with the #spsmelbourne-proj hash tag. As promised for those of you that don’t have access to twitter, the links are outlined below….

Also, we had a competition to win a copy of Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with MSDN for the first person to tell me the download size of Project Server 2010. Congratulations to Chander Ramanathan who was first to put his hand up and answer the question correctly.
For those of you who haven’t been to a SharePoint Saturday, I would heartily recommend it, the quality of the presentations and depth of knowledge is on par for conferences you usually have to pay hundreds of dollars to attend. SharePoint Saturdays are held all over the world, check out http://www.sharepointsaturday.org to see if there is one near you, or sign up to run your own.
