SharePoint Conference 2012 really is a mental overload. Just the scale of the Conference itself is enormous (me being a first time SPC attendee), let alone the impressions that Las Vegas adds to that.

Then there are all those sessions for developers, IT professionals and business. There are so many sessions that overlap that you have to make some hard choices. Luckily most of the sessions are recorded and made available afterwards.
Yesterday was the big outdoor event on Mandalay Beach with Jon Bon Jovi and the Suburban Kings performing. Being not much of a fan I didn’t get excited about it, but I went anyway and enjoyed the vibe, catering and conversations with other attendees.
