MWLUG is coming next week

There’s a bit more than 1 week left before MWLUG kicks off in Chicago on August 27th.  If you haven’t registered yet, do so and do so soon.  If you live in Midwest and particularly around Chicago and are a Lotus user and fan, you almost have no reason not to attend.  For myself, I’m looking forward to attending a conference where I don’t have to travel out of town.

PSC, while sponsoring the event, will be presenting 3 separate sessions.

Integration and Coexistence: Leveraging Lotus and Microsoft products to build better solutions” by John Head.  While John and I usually co-present this session at Lotusphere, the 1-hour format of LUG conferences makes it kind of silly to have 2 presenters up there.  So this will be John all himself.

Enabling your Applications with Complete Rich Text Editing on the Web” by yours truly.

Implementing DAOS and ID Vault” by Luis Guirigay.  Luis will spend the 2 days prior to MWLUG teaching a Domino 8.5 upgrade workshop.  So all topics of new and exciting features of 8.5 will be fresh on his mind.  Come by and ask questions.

Hope to see you all there.

Midwest Lotus User Group Conference 2009

The Lotus User Groups of the Mid-West are pleased to announce the Midwest Lotus User Group Conference 2009.  This two-day event will be held on August 27 & 28, 2009 at the IBM Center located in bustling downtown Chicago:  Hyatt Center, 71 South Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois 60606

The Lotus User Groups from Central Ohio, GRANITE (Chicago), Minnesota, Northeast Ohio, Northeast Wisconsin, Southern Wisconsin and West Michigan have joined forces to bring Lotus Users and Partners an opportunity to learn, network, and socialize with each other.

In an intimate setting, the two days will be packed with opportunities to exchange knowledge and compare experiences with colleagues in the industry.  The event will allow participants to get an inside look at solutions and associated products that make Lotus products the leading collaboration solutions for the enterprise.  An intensive day and a half of learning with technical sessions and workshops will be capped off with fun times as the group has the opportunity to enjoy local Chicago attractions.

“This will be a great opportunity for the Lotus user community to connect and discuss the platform at an in-depth level,” said Richard Moy, President of the Granite Lotus User Group (Chicago).  

“This is a great opportunity for users in the Midwest to attend a premier Lotus user event close to home, and network with a broader segment of the community”, added Barb Skedel, President of Northeast Ohio Lotus User Group.  

Given the popularity of the event, attendance will be limited, so it will be important for participants to make their reservations early.  More details will be available soon. Registration begins on June 1st at
