  3. Looking to get the most out of WPC utilizing social media? Here’s some tips on how: Worldwide Partner Conference, WPC11, and social media
  4. Remember, the site has information about all aspects of the event. Be sure to utilize it. I have also posted a cheat sheet to get you directly to the information you are looking for on the DigitalWPC site: Getting you directly to the Worldwide Partner Conference info (#WPC11)
  5. If you have a Windows Phone, you can access WPC info through the Microsoft Partner Info mobile app by clicking the the WPC mobile icon on the main screen. You’ll also have access to information from Jon Roskill, the Microsoft Partner Team, Product Teams, and much, much more.
