SES, San Jose is not all serious and proving this is the fantastic line-up of fun events co-ordinated by Joseph Morin.

Listed below is the official event schedule for this year's SES San Jose.

“Welcome to this year's SES San Jose Party Schedule.

Due to the requests of many party and event organizers, this year's private party events will not be listed. I can only confirm that there are private events on Monday and Wednesday.

SEMPO The Search is Right Night

6:00 – 7:00 PM

Come on down to “The Search Is Right Night” Following briefremarks about the state of the organization, attendees are invited to learn how they can get involved with the various SEMPO committees and enter for a chance to win door prizes such as an iPhone, gift certificates and more.

Nothing Yet”

Sadly, this is Joseph's last SES event as the guy is resigning.

“Nowadays it seems to be all private parties as the engines and vendors try and trim their budgets, also the conference grew in size to a point where no one wants to foot the bill for a conference now numbering in the thousands of attendees. Perhaps it's the end of an era, but after compiling this years list and waiting forever for any word whatsoever to compile an even somewhat decent party schedule and getting 'we're only having a private party this show' or 'we aren't doing anything for this show' time and time again plus given that unfortunately PubCon Las Vegas 2007 and SES Chicago 2007 happen to fall during the same week (where I happen to be one of the conference organizers), I now have a good opportunity to relinguish my role as party coordinator and pass the torch on to someone else. I'm not sure who will take over my position or if there will be enough event activity to warrant an 'official person' but I wish them well and I cherish the time that I have spent in this role.”

Until then, raise a toast for Joseph.
