The SharePointSaturday_smallsessions schedule will be posted next Monday at most on, on the registration page and on Participants will choose a session each hour. They are welcome to switch back and forth between sessions. The session descriptions and speakers are available at

The first session starts at 7:00am GMT+0. Marwan Tarek and I will do the intros together and then present a short keynote talk to get everything started. All the registrants will receive the login information and the live meeting URL during the next week.

In order to hear the presentations, you will need speakers or headphones. THERE IS NOT CONFERENCE CALL DIAL IN NUMBER since this is an international event. Everything will be done over your computer.
