The Greater Idaho SharePoint Users Group

The GISUG had its inaugural meeting last week. From what Pete Hohenhaus tells me, there was a lot of enthusiasm, participation, and interest. Not including the presenters, they had 35 attendees. All in all an excellent beginning for this promising group.

Owen Allen, Jason Mauer, and Chris Barnard presented on Office 2007/SharePoint 2007. Owen and Jason focused many of the new capabilities, as well as the overall look and feel. Chris did an overview of the product release. Pete presented on some perspectives of what SharePoint is, how it can be used, and how best it can assist with collaborative work.

Pete has setup a controlled access MSN Group and they will be adding content and sending out invitations to join very soon.
