In just a few short days, SharePoint Conference 2009 (SPC09) will finally be upon us. Not only is this the biggest and most important SharePoint conference on the calendar, but this year's conference signifies the lifting of that pesky SharePoint 2010 NDA. We've all been salivating at the tidbits of information and screenshots that have been shared so far by Microsoft, so next week will be a bit overwhelming.
