For the very first time SharePoint Saturday happens in Jordan, Princess Sumaya University for Technology hosted this international event, very well-known speakers attended too, Joel Oleson, Michael Noel from the USA and Mohamed Saleh, Muhanad Omar from Jordan Devosis, Soud Ereiqat from AvePoint and Tamer Nassrawin.
Mohammad Saleh started the introduction to SharePoint 2010 for developers, as a beginner to SharePoint, you would have learned a lot, he showed many demos and did a great show up there. Then, Michael Noel talked about the SharePoint 2010 Architecture Fundamentals which was interesting, he mentioned SharePoint 2007 vs. SharePoint 2010 Virtualization and Scalability. After that, Soud Ereiqat who came from London presented the Protecting and Optimizing SharePoint 2010, there were many questions popping from the audience, I believe they did learn many new things in SharePoint 2010.
Yarmouk University .Net club did attend too for sure, we were one of the Jordan universities that covered this event in photos and videos.
Student who attended the event; me (Baraah Omari), Mohammad Yasien (the univ MSP), Siraj AlShare, Shatha Kamal, Yasser AlShare and Ameen AlJadedy.
My name is Baraah Omari, I’m a student in Yarmouk university – Jordan. I’m a Microsoft passionate since a quite long time, I’m a .net club member as well in Yarmouk university .net club. I keep myself in touch with many MSPs, MVPs and any big passionate about technology all around the world.
I once contacted Microsoft in Dubai – UAE & I had a great chance to be in the office with some of the employees (Natasha Zaza and Renat Minazhdinov ). We had a great 45 minutes meeting that covered many topics, started with who I am, what I like, and what I want to be & ended up with a really refreshed mood that could change my life.
We discussed other things as well, like my activities in the club & the community we run, training courses, blogging and some up coming events like Tech.Ed Middle east 2010. I felt good about everything. They were really helpful and so encouraging.
I’m thankful for everyone who helped or supported me during my journey. And Special thanks to Microsoft Jordan for their unlimited support.
