Web Content Management System (CMS) Smackdown

I wanted to give you advance warning that we’ll be having our annual Web CMS Smackdown at SBTUG on Wednesday 29 September. Yes, September – roughly 6 weeks away. This was one of our most popular events at the Sydney Business & Technology User Group last year. If you’re already sold on the event and don’t need to know anything more, then just pop over and RSVP now on our Facebook Event. For...

Bing with Mark Vozzo at SBTUG

It’s going to be interesting to see what the Bing team have been up to lately – this Wed at SBTUG Mark Vozzo is going to be covering all the new stuff in Bing. He’ll be on after the pizza break (remember we have Gary Hayes talking about Augmented Reality in the first session). One of my frustrations with Bing is that most of their new stuff doesn’t show in Australia – it is US only, meaning...

Augmented Reality with Gary Hayes at SBTUG

I wonder if you’ve spent much time considering what the benefits of Augmented Reality are for your business? Personally I think Augmented Reality is soon going to be as significant as Location has become today. A few years ago people thought tracking your mobile phone location was only useful for freight companies. Now we know how much of a game-changer it has become with companies like...

Saasu, Xero, Freshbooks, MYOB and more at SBTUG (UPDATED)

UPDATED: See notes below. I need your help please. This month at the Sydney Business & Technology User Group (SBTUG) we’re covering online accounting, bookkeeping, time tracking and invoicing systems for freelancers and small businesses. But I need some guidance from you: First, which products should we cover? I’m thinking products like Saasu, Xero, Freshbooks and Zoho. Which others should we...

Sydney WordPress Event at SBTUG

I’m looking for Sydney’s hottest WordPress developers to come and present at SBTUG this month. And to clarify, by ‘hottest’ I mean ‘skilled’ – this isn’t a calendar photo shoot :-) We’re having a huge WordPress event at the Sydney Business & Technology User Group (SBTUG) on Wed 24 Feb 2010, covering all facets of using WordPress as a web platform for business. We’re planning to have 5...

SBTUG: Social Networking and Chocolate

If you’re like me, then you probably cringe when you see people referring to themselves as a ‘social media strategist’. And if they point to Gary Vaynerchuk as their main example of why you too should embrace social media then I really despair. Too often it seems, we’re told of the wonderful success stories, with scant mention of the hard work, sweat and perserverance these overnight social media...

SharePoint 2010 Extravaganza

Perhaps you’ve been hearing a lot about SharePoint 2010 lately… or perhaps not! Most likely the latter because most of the juicy bits have been locked under NDA. Until the SharePoint conference in Las Vegas next week that is! Yes, and once the NDA wrappers are off there’s tons of goodness to talk about. Which is why we’re having a special SharePoint 2010 Extravaganza at the Sydney Business &...

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) at SBTUG

Next Wednesday (Sep 30) at SBTUG we’re lucky to have Kristin Rohan from SassySEO along to give us a Beginners Guide to SEO For Business.  Make sure you RSVP here. It kicks off at 6pm next Wed 30 Sep at Microsoft, North Ryde (full details and map here). (We ask for a $5 donation to help cover the cost of pizza.) SEO for Business She’ll be covering a number of areas including: Why it is...

SBTUG – Wed 24 June 2009 – Visual Studio 2010, Customer Feedback, Google Wave

I love the Sydney developer community. Really I do. Here’s why… I’d previously organized a speaker for SBTUG tomorrow night, but he had to pull out (due to valid work travel reasons). This was two weeks ago. Then I got sick for a week and a bit, so it wasn’t until late last week I started getting around to finding replacements (yeah, I know – pretty disorganized for me). Two guys from the...
