Topic and Attendee Tracks
The conference topics will include a number of different categories with different levels of sessions. Sessions will be labeled with a number from 100 to 400, with the higher numbers representing "deep dive" sessions meant to help even the most experienced of professionals while 100-level "overview" courses are meant to accelerate basic learning and familiarity.
As to the categories themselves, the usual suspects can be found (architecture, business intelligence, governance, etc.). However, the topics go well beyond those standards too. Every SharePoint topic you could want to learn about will be represented, including far-reaching topic tracks such as "related technologies," "social," "office development," and "hybrid topologies."
There are enough topic tracks that it would be a waste to try and skim over all of them here. If you're ready to find out more, you can read the full list on this official page, which goes into detail on what each track includes.
When SharePoint Conference 2014 was announced, there were a great many names suggested as likely speakers. While Microsoft has given themselves room to expand the list of speakers, a core lineup has been confirmed. Without a doubt, the lineup includes a range of "MVPs and certified masters."
Microsoft is bringing in many of their own elite, including Jared Spataro, Jeff Teper, Bill Baer, and Adam Pisoni, but many recognized experts from outside of Microsoft will also be in the spotlight. This includes Laura Rogers of Rackspace, Sam Hassani of BrightStarr, and Rita Zhang of GE. In total, there are more than 60 confirmed presenters.
Even if nothing is added to the lineup we've received so far, SharePoint Conference 2014 will be the biggest event that we've ever seen for professionals in the field. Stay tuned to this blog for more updates on the conference, our analysis of some of the Microsoft announcements, and more. We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas this coming March.
