IT/Dev Connections 2014 Debrief
I arrived back in Belgium last Saturday after what has been a very exciting week at the IT/Dev Connections event in Las Vegas. A quick debrief of the event:
First of all a big thumbs-up to Megan, Angela, Rod and the entire team organizing the event. I honestly believe the ingredients and the recipe for this event are spot on. Great venue, awesome speakers and session content, plus plenty of social activity and networking opportunities.
Next to being an attendee I also had the pleasure to deliver two sessions with my friend Kenny. Our morning session was packed to the extent that a few people were without seats and had to stand up in the back of the room. The afternoon session was less crowded but I was pleased to see a lot of people from the morning session came back to see us.
I would like to take the opportunity again to thank everyone who joined our sessions. Further feedback, comments or questions on these sessions are always welcome. For those of you who submitted session evals: we were informed the feedback will be provided to us in the upcoming days and we will definitely take your input into account. Also make sure to check the session wrap-ups here and here.
From a networking perspective I honestly cannot start to describe and/or quantify what this events has meant to me. Not only did I meet a lot of new people, it has also been the perfect opportunity to meet up with friends from the System Center community that I had not seen in quite some time. This to me is worth even more than the excellent session content.
One last fun fact: based on the twitter analytics published by Martina Grom and Toni Pohl it seems that "the Belgians" have been very busy on Twitter as well during the entire event. Unknowingly we made it into the top of the statistics. Make sure to check out the full report here.
I had a fantastic time at the event and I am already looking forward to the 2015 edition of IT/Dev Connections! From what I heard more about that will be announced soon!
Until next time.
