I am on my way to Québec City for the SharePoint Summit, I have been on the organizing committee for the SharePoint Summit for the past 3 years and I will also be presenting a session on upgrade/migration to SharePoint 2013 on tuesday.

This year (like other years) we have a great list of speakers for the conference.  Even if most of the conference is in French, there will be a few sessions in English from (Reza Alirezaei, Saguenay Baruss, Mike Maadarani, Bruce Miller, Eli Robillard and Joel Oleson).

The MVP community will be well represented by the 4 SharePoint MVPs from Québec (Alain Lord, Benjamin Niaulin, Nicolas Georgeault and Serge Tremblay)  There will be also 2 French MVPs (Guillaume Meyer and Kevin Trelohan), 1 MVP from Belgium (Serge Luca) and 2 Toronto MVPs (Reza Alirezaei and Eli Robillard).

SharePoint 2013 learning roadmaps

1 Comment

Microsoft has published  learning roadmaps for SharePoint 2013.   A Learning Roadmap provides a methodical approach to help you build expertise as you achieve a series of learning goals. You start with prerequisites and then build on your knowledge and experience in levels:

  •      Introductory (level 100)
  •      Intermediate (level 200)
  •      Advanced (level 300)
  •      Expert (level 400)

Each section of a Learning Roadmap contains an ordered list of steps, which you should perform in the recommended order. Each step points to a resource (a Microsoft or third-party article, white paper, video, book chapter, blog post, and so on) and states a learning goal. After you meet the knowledge or experience requirements of a learning goal, move on to the next step.
