So we just finished the conference in London yesterday.
This was a repeat of the April event that was heavily over-subscribed. In fact virtually all the approx 90 delegates at this event had initially tried to get in the April event, which sold out faster than Glasto. (I say ‘sell’, they were both free.)
Another great event lots of useful stuff, lots of great feedback. If you came I hope you enjoyed it and found it useful, thanks for coming, if you missed out this time, then maybe next time?
Thanks to Microsoft too for feeding and accommodating us.
Thanks to the Indian resto last night – my curry was so hot I’ve had a sore throat all day.
No thanks to the crappy pub we landed in due to their misleading signage. Whichever beer you ordered they just pulled it all from the same pump! (glad I drink bottles – but the ‘real ale’ (arf arf arf – as if there is such a thing down south) contingent were most put out.
A couple of interesting points:
At the end we asked some questions about the sort of thing that people would like in future presentations. Well over half the audience would like sessions on Visual Studio and Excel integration and on Excel Services. Everyone wanted more advanced VBA and BI/OLAP type content, no surprise there. But I was pleased to see the interest increasing (finally) in some of the newer technology.
