Windows IT Pro's European division is presenting two compelling online conferences in the coming months, SharePoint: From Chaos to Success and Power Up with SQL Server EMEA. Both one-day virtual events are free-to-attend and both have been scheduled to address timing issues for readers this side of the Atlantic. The first, SharePoint: From Chaos to Success, will take place on Thursday, October 15 starting at 11am Central European Time/10am GMT.

SharePoint: From Chaos to Success will be presented by SharePoint gurus Dan Holme and Michael Noel. Both are Windows IT Pro authors and Microsoft MVPs. Virtual conference-goers will learn how to control SharePoint farms, apps and site collections and find out how to implement and support SharePoint governance from a technical perspective. The two experts will also seek to answer the question of when and why it makes sense to use either Active Directory or SharePoint groups. Plus they will cover search page customisation and web parts as well as how to use search reporting.

Visitors will be able to ask questions in real time and interact with peers. Sponsors include Avepoint, Axceler, Quest Software, Metalogix, Mimosa Systems and SharepartXXL. For free registration, further lowdown and the day's full agenda, see the SharePoint: From Chaos to Success website.

The second web conference, Power Up with SQL Server EMEA, was originally scheduled for this month. However, fortune smiles on European database administrators and developers that might have missed out and Power Up with SQL Server EMEA will now take place on Thursday, December 3, starting at 11am Central European Time/10am GMT. Sponsors include Idera and Neverfail.  

Sessions include "Understanding Query Plan Caching in SQL Server" from Australian SQL Server MVP Greg Low and "SQL Server High Availability" and "SQL Server Performance", both presented by UK-based Swedish expert Niels Berglund. For the full agenda and no-cost registration see the Power Up with SQL Server EMEA website.
