SharePoint in Iowa?

The other day Chris Sutton posted about the growing .NET community in Iowa. I was definitely impressed by the turnout at the last Iowa Code Camp, where I saw Chris’s talk on ASP.NET MVC as well as top-notch SharePoint presentations by Todds Klindt and Bleeker, and am looking forward to more at the upcoming camp on Nov. 8.

While there’s general .NET growth in the area, the Iowa SharePoint scene seems rather quiet. The Iowa SharePoint User Group has been on hiatus for a while and other than Todd Klindt, the only other Iowan I can find is Darrin Bishop, who presented at the October IADNUG meeting. The SharePoint sessions at the last code camp were full and there are several scheduled for this next one, so I know we’re not alone…

I guess I have two questions:

  1. Is there anybody out there?
  2. Is there any interest in getting the user group up an running again?
