We are pleased to announce the first SUGUK meeting in Edinburgh. The event will take place at the stunning Scottish Parliament (no snide remarks about using it for something useful please!) on Thursday June 19th. A special shout out to Stephen Hynds for organising the venue. If you get there early you'll be able to take a wee tour.

The event will include two sessions by Steve Smith and myself:

  • MOSS 2007 on Windows Server 2008 - Spencer Harbar
    Learn how to leverage the new and improved features of Windows Server 2008 in your SharePoint deployments. This session will cover installation improvements, performance and management benefits and the numerous new capabilities such as IIS7, PowerShell, Active Directory and more. Essential tips for SharePoint administrators with an eye on the future. This session will also include some material for developers.
  • How and why to stress test your SharePoint farm using Visual Studio 2008 - Steve Smith SharePoint MVP
    In this session Steve will demonstrate using the Visual Studio tool to stress test a SharePoint farm and we will also discuss why this is important as part of your planning process. It is important for both Developers and IT Pro's to understand how to use this tool from a testing perspective in order to understand potential issues at the production stage.

The Scottish Parliament building is located in the Holyrood area of central Edinburgh at the foot of the Royal Mile - http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/vli/visitingHolyrood/howToFindUs.htm.
