Earlier this week, the first ever IBM Connections User Group event took place in London at the the Salvation Army's international headquarters just adjacent to the Millennium Bridge in the centre of London.
The agenda looks like it was a really good one and I really want to congratulate the organizers, speakers, and sponsors for putting together a really good event. As I catch up with all the tweets and blogs about the event, the sentiment is overall very positive. There's even a Lanyrd page that's aggregating all the coverage about the event. It's a shame that I couldn't attend. I really wanted to go but it conflicted with my spouse's birthday and a long weekend over here. Maybe I can participate in the next one.
If you couldn't make your way to London over the July 4th weekend, don't worry. The event's organizers have gone out and shared the session recordings like this one where you see my colleagues Mike Roche talking about the latest release of Connections and hints as to what's coming and Michael Ahern who focuses on the new user lifecycle capabilities within Connections.
The slides for the various presentations have also been captured and shared on Slideshare. I particularly liked this one: I'm Too Busy To Collaborate (haven't we all heard that at least one time) which is also part of the video above so you can see the material that Joseph was speaking to:
