I can finally share details of the Office + SharePoint 2010 Roadshow! The official worldwide (commercial) launch date for Office and SharePoint 2010 is May 12th, but we wanted to get out of the blocks earlier than that to give you a good first look at some of the scenarios you will enjoy if you are fortunate enough to deploy it.

See below for the four ‘Roadshow’ dates and locations – it is worth noting that the Dublin event will be streamed live (using Silverlight) and recorded for on-demand viewing, so no worries if you cannot attend in person.

Ps we have great technical presenters on-board for the Roadshow, including: Patrick Herlihy (Partner Team, Microsoft Ireland), Aidan Nolan (Microsoft Consultancy Services, Microsoft Ireland) Bob Duffy (Database Architect, Prodata).
