Just want to send out a thank you to Andrew Connell and Bob Fox. They threw a fantastic SharePint down at an Irish bar in Pike Market last night. The real buzz for me was finally getting the opportunity to meet people whose blogs I have been reading for years!
Bob Fox - Thanks for the invite mate, great to catch up for a pint, I was serious about you coming to Amsterdam.
Andrew Connell - Great to finally meet, wanted to buy you a beer, but the competition too great, would be the least I could do for all those posts.
Dan Winter - I think after this conference we have finally talked longer face to face rather than over the phone, will stay in touch.
Kimmo Forss - Get a blog. See you in Amsterdam.
Keith Richie - Another old time blogger who has been too quiet for too long, time to get posting again!
Maurice Prather - Just keeps keeping on, great to hear how much fun you are having on the outside.
Nick Swan - Good to meet again, and great to hear about the BDC Meta Man. I'm coming to a user group soon.
Vincent Rothwell - Was not until this morning that I realised this is The Kid! Will mail you Vince...
Chris O'Brien - Nice to meet you, must stay in touch as I haven't finished sneakily getting free SharePoint advice and guidance
Sharon Richardson - Spin out to meet you over here after so long out from MS UK, will call you when we get back, and will get a new haircut, promise.
Patrick Tisseghem - Next time we talk about national borders, Flemish and Dutch, lets do it over a red wine, too deep and meaningful for Guinness.
Mike Watson - Presented a great session, looking forward to more deep tech detail about scaling.
Laurence Liu - Great conference, great you made it last night.
Mike Fitzmaurice - Amsterdam is calling.
Servé Hermans - The man behind some popular tools, and more importantly, an all round good guy.
Brett Campbell and Brian Cook - Nintex Demo Gods, though with a product like that its not really all that difficult.
Eric Shupps - Looked for you around the conference floor but no luck, next year we grab a pint.
Hello also to Ted Patterson, Patrick Kersten and everyone else who was there last night (Sorry if I've left anyone off, it got harder to keep track the later it got)
It has been worth coming all this way just for the chats and while I'm already firmly back on the blogging horse, I really appreciate the extra motivation!
