IDUG EMEA - Phils final Vienna musing
Hi all,

Well, I know I am a few days late, but as you can imagine last week was somewhat hectic for those of us involved in the IDUG organisation - but I would like to take a few moments to finish my Vienna musings with my thoughts

There will be some final eMails from IDUG headquarters soon, covering the "end of term" report for IDUG EMEA, but for now let me just say it was really good to see so many of you in Vienna last week. Not only were the registration numbers very good, aspects such as the DB2 certification examinations exceeded our expectations (and congratulations to everyone who achieved their DB2 certification last week)

The exhibition area was busy each time it was open, with some very interesting showings from our vendors and exhibitors. Whilst I am in "thank you" mode, I do need to take a moment to express my gratitude to all exhibitors who provided prizes for the various give-aways which were offered during the week. Well done to those of you who won prizes either as part of the Passport for Prizes, the VSP Lottery or whatever - I hope you find them useful and will remind you of your time at IDUG EMEA

I'd also like to take a moment to thank my colleagues on the IDUG EMEA planning committee - without the hard work of these volunteers there would not even BE an IDUG conference - it was an honour working with you all. If anyone reading this is interested in also volunteering to assist IDUG, take a look here < http://www.idug.org/volunteer/volunteering.html > for details of the areas you can volunteer (and the form to complete to indicate your interest!)

Well, that's about it from me. I hope these weekly Vienna musings have been both interesting and helpful.

Look out for my Prague musings in 2011 and I'm looking forward to another exciting IDUG EMEA conference next November

Phil, thanks to you and all the IDUG EMEA planning committee. It was
quite obvious the work everyone

did, and the busy times during the week. All of your efforts before and
during sure paid off because the

conference seemed very smooth from the attendees, speakers, and
moderators side.



Great conference, great speakers, and great city. I look forward to
Prague and hopefully will be back as

a speaker again next year.

Re: IDUG EMEA - Phils final Vienna musing
(in response to Max Scarpa)
It was definitely the best European IDUG conference I ever attended. Great
job by the CPC.

Thanks to all of those who twitted at the conference. All of that ended up
in an automatically published daily news (e.g.
http://paper.li/tag/idugemea/2010/11/11). Looking to do a lot more of the
same next year.
