As Paul Mooney blogs, the evaluations for ILUG 2008 are in and we have the session results:

My session slides info again for anyone who missed it the first time:



and a link to my Lotusphere 2008 session BP215:  Integration of IBM Lotus Notes 8 with IBM Lotus Symphony and OpenOffice.org which has all the samples

So tied for 9th with the IdeaJam session. Not bad at all. 87.41% means I have room to improve. I appreciated the folks who made comments. I got those from Paul and will take those suggestions to heart and make some updates.

This was an interesting session for me. In 60 minutes, I covered Lotus Symphony from three perspectives: The executive, the user, and the developer.

I have been remiss on not making any comments about my experience at ILUG 2008. I am not sure words can accurately describe the work that the ILUG team does. Paul, Eileen, Bill, Warren, Kitty, Matt, Julian, Tom, and Rob run a conference as good as any of the 500 person I have ever been too. Since it is a free user group, that is the highest compliment I know how to give them.

For me, ILUG 2008 was a strange experience. I spoke once and helped out during Speed Sponsoring at the Integra booth, but for the most part ... I was an attendee. I went to more sessions over the three days than maybe the past 3 Lotuspheres combined. Lotusphere is all about customers and all that ... ILUG was about learning for me.

Thanks again you guys ... and Paul, I hope your truly enjoying life for a bit! :-)
