July 12, 2014, Saigon – It was an exciting Saturday morning for SharePoint enthusiasts as AppBattle Salon started its festivity at ApTech Building. Around 9 AM, AppBattle Salon participants were ready to mingle and learn from the experts in the SharePoint community.
We saw familiar faces as we were checking in attendees. The SharePoint community in Vietnam is a very well-connected group of people who loves to go out of their way to learn from others from local or international events and workshops such as SharePoint Saturday Vietnam and SP24.
AppBattle, for example, is the result of collaboration between NIFTIT and SharePoint Saturday Vietnam team. Both organizing teams agreed that the SharePoint community in Ho Chi Minh City needed a more innovative and exciting learning experience to boost skills and expand network. The results of AppBattle Salon was beyond amazing. Attendees were full of energy as they hustled all day; starting discussions during workshop sessions (we hosted 5 sessions: Design, Front End Development, Office 365, SharePoint Development) and collaborating with peers during development sessions to build applications in just few hours!
We concluded the event at around 6 PM with a closing note from the organizing team, thanking the wonderful speakers: Darren Barklie (NIFTIT), Terrence Nguyen (HarveyNash), Tung Pham (ICT24H GROUP), Minh Do (Interactive Vietnam) and Binh Nguyen (Appvity). Finally, we’d also like to reiterate our thanks to YOU – AppBattle attendees and supporters. You make this possible. We look forward to seeing you again at our next event!
