Today is the Revelation User Group for the EMEA region. We have a full room, which was bigger than originally booked, with developers and users from the UK and around Europe.
Mike Ruane has set the scene for the day and outlined the huge number of changes coming in OpenInsight 10. Mike is now into the tools and looking at what we have now for the OI 10 release.
Usually, the room warms up immediately before the lunch break, but we are already receiving some great feedback from the floor. People here are already seeing the benefit of putting their needs direct to Mike and he is scribbling notes on a pad that is filling pages fast.
Later we’ll be hearing from Carl about the OI 10 presentation layer enhancements, or should I say sweeping changes, and the other guys from Sprezzatura. Andrew is going to cover connectivity and Aaron will be talking about a project that he is working on and which involves moving a client back from SQL to OI.
Personally I would like to thank Peter from Ardbrook for name dropping during the O4W slide. Unfortunately, the nugget of information has to stay in the room, but I saw some huge smiles around the room because it’ll help anyone selling and marketing an online application.
Things are getting busy, so I’ll leave this as the one and only posting from the RUG. You have to be here to really experience the positivity around OpenInsight 10. I guess that begs one question – if you are an OI developer or user in the EMEA region, why are you not here with us in London?
Watch the blog for some photographs from the RUG later in the week when I get back from my road trip with Mike.
