I just spent a really great week in Austria and Germany for the GroupWise and Friends conference (and then on to Switzerland for a couple of days of R&R). I had a WONDERFUL time, and have to thank Marco Mikulits for being a WONDERFUL tour guide during my stay. I was especially grateful for the time he spent showing me Vienna, and feel that for a 3 day stay I got to see quite a bit considering that a good portion of 2 days was spent inside the conference center!
For each of the Austria and Germany events, I presented a 4 hour “GroupWise on Linux” session as a “pre-event special day”, and then a short presentation on the GWIA during their “big day event”. Marc Conradty was a co-presenter in that session, and I believe it was well received.
While I attempted to do the sessions in German, I was often side-swiped by my slides and forced back to English when my poor brain wouldn’t translate quickly enough in my head. While I might be able to speak decent German, I realize I will never make a living as an interpreter!
Thanks to everyone in the GroupWise and Friends community who made this trip possible. Hope to see you again soon!
