#SPC11: Day 1

It’s been an interesting and exciting first day at SPC11. Everything from the facilities to the overall organization to the drive and excitement are what we’ve come to expect from a big Microsoft Conference. SharePoint has truly invaded Mickey Mouse’s neighborhood.
What’s also impressive is the impact the SharePoint Community has on shaping the conference. From the conference breakfast where giant screens of streaming tweets provided some dining entertainment to the keynote itself where our host Jared Spataro spoke to the prevalence of SharePoint Saturdays and SharePints that many of the 7500 attendees have experienced
So, as I try to summarize the activities of Day 1, I look to the community, and nowhere else is the community more visible than on Twitter, and more specifically the hash tag #spc11. This river of tweets contains a great perspective on the day’s first events and activities we’ve experienced.
But what about those of who are not yet part of the twitter phenomenon, or those just too busy today to keep an eye on twitter throughout the day. For those, I present a small sample of the best and most relevant tweets of the day. Read and enjoy:
