Thursday's DIWUG meeting


Last Thursday we held another DIWUG meeting. This one was a special one! We had an all-time high number of visitors. 99 people registered and in the end 85 actually attended the evening event that was held at our own Macaw office at Schiphol-Rijk. It was just able to hold all 85 attendees. Luckily food and drinks were well taken care of :-).


As usual there were two presentations:

  • A SharePoint User eXperience by Sandra de Ridder from Sparked (slides)
  • Functioneel ontwerpen voor MOSS by Maurice de Bakker and Jaap Mollema from TamTam (slides)

There were no hardcore technical topics this time, but really interesting presentations on other aspects of SharePoint. The presentations were well received and caused some interesting discussions that continued after the sessions over a beer.


I would like to thank everyone that helped make this a great evening, Karin and the reception at Macaw, the speakers, the Dutch SharePoint community that showed up in such high numbers and made this evening really enjoyable and a great success. And of course the fellow DIWUG organizers Marianne (@mariannerd) and Dirk (@Zirk77).


I hope to see you all again at the upcoming events!
