The registration for CollabSphere in Boston this fall is now open. This conference, formerly known as MWLUG, is a great opportunity to learn more about the future of the IBM/HCL Collaboration products (Notes, Domino, Sametime, Connections, and more) directly from the product managers and executives at HCL. When CollabSphere takes place on October 28 to 30, the HCL acquisition of the products should have taken place, but you will still see many familiar faces on stage and at the round-table discussions, as a large number of IBM:ers followed the products over to HCL. This is obviously a sign that they belive in the future of the collaboration tools under HCL’s control.
In addition there will be many other sessions from business partners and customers, where you will learn the latest and greatest, as well as best practices, for everything related to the platforms. I have attending MWLUG and CollabSphere for several years, and the sessions are always top notch. Not only do I always learn new things, I also get inspired and energized to do new things with Notes and Domino.
This is also a great opportunity to network, both with HCL executives, product managers and developers, and with other customers and business partners.
The cost of the conference is only $100, which is a steal if you look at what you get. Most of the cost for the conference is covered by sponsors.
If you want to share your knowledge at CollabSphere, the call for abstracts is also open now. Submit your session, and perhaps you get to present to your peers in Boston in the end of October!
I hope to see you in Boston!
