Collaboration University 2007


I was excited to see this morning that the great team that put together Collaboration University last year is at it again.  They just announced Collaboration University 2007, expanded this year with dates to cover not only Sametime and Quickr but with additional sessions in the US and UK just focused on Notes and Domino.

For those of you who missed it last year, Collaboration University offers hands-on, deep dive sessions focused just on Sametime and Quickr (well, last year QuickPlace), with an impressive roster of speakers (e.g., the people who have written all the Sametime and QuickPlace certification exams, co-authored all the Sametime and QuickPlace RedBooks, and won seven IBM Lotus Beacon awards amongst them.)  If you are planning to or are even considering rolling out, customizing, or building applications on top of Sametime or Quickr - or just want to understand how better to get the most value out of these applications - you're going to want to be here.  (And, no, they didn't pay me to say this :)

I was very disappointed last year at not being able to attend (and hopefully will be able to go this year), but I heard nothing but positive reviews of last year's events.  And from the lineup they have this year it looks like it's going to top that.  (Is that Lotus General Manager Mike Rhodin I see listed as the keynote speaker in Kansas City?)
