We’re in the final 30 days before ServoyWorld 2008 in Las Vegas.
Things are abuzz here in many different directions. I can’t really give all the details here – but I’ve seen a lot of the presentations and they will be absolutely awesome! They cover everything under the sun – and we’ve really tried to listen to attendee feedback and offer a “beginner” track as well as a track for more advanced folks.
As usual, engineering is still cooking with full steam – working on the latest-and-greatest additions and enhancements to the newly released 4.0 version, in addition to some very cool stuff that isn’t public yet.
If you’ve never been to a ServoyWorld before – and you’re into Servoy – or maybe you’re just evaluating Servoy – you owe it to yourself to come and check it out. You’ll meet some terrific people – be able to get some ‘face time’ with engineers and execs – AND be have ample opportunity to have ALL of your Servoy-related questions answered.
In case you just got back from vacation and haven’t signed up yet – the cheap hotel rooms are gone – but you can still register for the conference at the ServoyWorld site. There’s only a couple of spots left for the pre-conference and post-conference classes – so if you’re still on the fence – sign up while you still can!
What a whirlwind week! I just got back from Amsterdam where we hosted a press tour for an “A-list” band of journalists: Joel Dreyfuss, Amy Wohl, and Dan Tynan.
It was simply an amazing week. We had the opportunity to tour the Dutch countryside and spend a lot of time in a van going to destinations that were “only 40 minutes away” from downtown Amsterdam.
Listening to them talk was like hearing a verbal history of the computer industry. These folks have simply “been there, done that” in a way that I didn’t think was possible. They have, literally, been involved with and personally witnessed the birth of every major technology; every major trend; every major piece of hardware and software.
They have consulted for every business in the Fortune 500 – and they have personal relationships with just about everyone you can read about in any type of media story. Period.
In addition to being terrific company – their insights and advice were really helpful – especially to a fast growing company like ours. Their vast knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, what to watch out for, and simple “…here’s what you do…” guidance will help us get even better.
It was a true honor and priviledge to meet them, get to know them, and break bread together.
I wanted to give a special thanks to them for taking so much time out of their impossibly busy schedules to meet with us – and also a special thanks to our own Brenda Christensen for getting it all together.
I’m looking forward to the next one!
