Hello, blog readers. Right now I’m sitting at the SharePoint Evolutions in beautiful London, England. As I was making my schedule it occurred to me that I should list out all of my Ignite events, in case someone wanted to go to them. There is also now an official Microsoft Ignite app (Windows Phone | Android | Apple) so you can put all your sessions in there. You can tag my sessions there. The Ignite web site also now allows you to export your calendar. Now you have no excuses not to find me. If I sign up for more things, I’ll add them here.
