The SharePoint Symposium aims to be something very different, a conference on the topic of Microsoft SharePoint that does not proselytize. Whether you already have SharePoint in your organization or are looking to acquire it, you will encounter no sales pitches here.

What you will experience are sessions led by true industry experts that will lead you through the pros and cons and strengths and weaknesses of SharePoint in practice. From managing (and avoiding) the threat of sprawl and viral growth, to considering alternatives and add-on techniques, all the conference schedules will be drawn from real-life experiences and best practices from leading practitioners.

Bruce Springsteen said, "Music is what makes us not be stupid." Trying not to overstretch the metaphor, but there's a correlation to SharePoint in there, too.
