For those not familiar, SharePoint Saturday is a free, community-focused SharePoint event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local SharePoint community. It draws upon the expertise of local SharePoint IT professionals, developers, architects, and users who come together to share real world experiences, lessons learned, best practices and general knowledge with other individuals. The event will be held June 2, 2012 at Georgia State University.  Intellinet is honored to sponsor SharePoint Saturday Atlanta at the Platinum level.
