The Twin Cities Sharepoint Camp kicked off this morning and is currently well on it's way.  We had a few hiccups this morning, with a misprint (starting time) on the schedule vs the website. So we kicked things off a few minutes later than planned, but everyone was flexible and accomodating.

We had one presenter who was very sick and couldn't make it, but he was nice enough to give us as much advance notice as possible. We also had one no-show, Jerry Sevier from ILM*. It's a shame, because he was one of the first sessions of the schedule, but we managed without him.

One interesting statistic about today's attendance:  We had 181 registrations (not counting speakers or volunteers) and 140 people showed up. That's a pretty good ratio for a regular Code Camp, and quite nice for a single topic camp like this.

But wait, it gets even better...  a typical code camp might (if you're lucky) have a gender ratio of 90% male to 10% female attendees, but today's Sharepoint Camp is running a lot closer to 70% male and 30% female.

Things are mostly** going really really well.

Also, I'd like to give an extra big special thanks to O'Reilly and Apress for sending us a bunch of Sharepoint books. Those were a big hit at the camp.

*ILM is a local consulting company in the Twin Cities, not Industrial Light & Magic. Hopefully, this no-show isn't indicative of them. Oh well.

**To the lady who decided it would be ok to leave her kid in the break room for 8 1/2 hours, shame on you. We're not running a daycare.
