9 Ways to Become a (SharePoint) Rock Star


Published on

So you want to become a rock star? We’re talking actual rock star – not a metaphor for “finding stardom” at your company, but that little “band thing” you do on the side after putting in your 9-to-5 each day.
In this session, we will lead you on a fun and adventurous journey where you can not only learn SharePoint, but springboard into that life of fame and rock stardom that you’ve been dreaming of, using the tools at your disposal during the daily grind. If, by chance, your wildest dreams of becoming a rock star do not come to fruition, you can be rest assured that you can apply what you learn in this session to become a SharePoint rock star. Because its always good to have a backup plan.

  • Before we start here… You know how there is all this buzz lately about 3D? 3D Movies, 3D TV’s, even 3D gaming consoles now… Well, this is going to be a 6-D session! It will be 60-ish minutes with time for questions at the end 
  • Now about the cross-out. The band broke up. I blame it all on Christian.
  • We don’t actually make the rulers, we make the parts that make up the rulers. Like the metal strips along the side, etc.
