Back home

by Volker Weber

Back from the Irish Notes User Group meeting in Dublin. If you have not been there, shame on you. Paul and Eileen have put an incredible amount of time into the event, and they have been wonderful hosts. Many of the speakers were the usual suspects that you will find speaking at Lotusphere and other events, where you have to hand over hundreds of dollars to attend. This event however was completely free, thanks to the sponsors. IBM even paid for free lunch. If you did not attend, that was a big mistake.

I am very happy that I made it. And this is not because I had to attend the sessions, but because of the wonderful hospitality and friendship. Thank you, Paul. And thank you all who will find themselves on these pictures. For now you may want to go to the front page, so you won't miss the captions. ;-)

I forgot to bring business cards — I hardly ever need them anymore — but I had exactly one. Dropped it into a bucket, and then won an iPod. It was pretty clear who would get it:


It was a pleasure to have you over here for the few days Volker. As usual, you added to the days and nights in a way only you can. NEXT time you are over, it will be for a longer stay and I will bring you to see more of the country. Of course, next time we will have to see if Ireland scores highly on the WAF for Ute ;-)
Ute... congratulations on the iPod...happy listening!

Nachdem Ihr nun einen iPod im Haus habt, wäre das da nicht eine überlegenswerte Erweiterung?
