If you’re an East Coast SharePoint user, there are a number of free, in-person events that can help you hone your expertise in specific areas. Microsoft partner DataLan will host a series of morning events in Manhattan, New Jersey, Boston and Philadelphia. Here’s the list of event topics, dates and times. Also, there are SharePoint Saturday events coming up in Austin, Texas (Jan. 21) and in Philadelphia (Feb. 4). You can find out more at the SharePoint Saturday website.

Finally, if you’re in the Boston area tonight, Jornata CEO and SPTechCon speaker Scott Jamison will be presenting to the user group there on findability.

So go, learn, network and schmooze. It’s all good.
