I came down to Orlando on Thursday night to help prepare for the Opening General Session (OGS). You wouldn't believe how much work goes into this 2 hour presentation. Most of us were up until 1 or 2 a.m. working on stuff - scripts and demos, which started out too long and had to be trimmed to their essence (but still very good). Then back at it at 8 a.m. I hear that it was nice outside. :(
I went to the House of Blues for dinner with the Activities team and a few others. (Good ribs.) Then, a stop by ESPN to meet and greet with Turtle, Gary, Colleen, Carl, Bonnie, the Bob, and probably a few others I can't remember.
On Sunday, the Jumpstarts began. I hear that the 8 a.m. Workplace Designer jumpstart was over-flowing. The WP Designer Doc API session by Philippe Riand had a good crowd, too. The second Designer intro jumpstart was also well attended in a bigger room. We already gave away 400 of the Document API posters.
(The Domino Object Model posters will be in the the product showcase on a table kind of toward the back. Remember - there are 2 of them.)
The party begins soon, and I hope I can go for a little bit. Maureen Leland and I start the first session at 11 a.m. on the main stage, so they better be done with the OGS by then. :)
We're off to a good start!
