After almost three weeks I finally got back home to my family last night and it was great to see my kids and wife again. Three weeks is a really long time to be away. But wow what a three weeks it was. First a very successful Collaboration University in Chicago and then repeated in London the week after. I had three sessions on Themes, Dojo & JSON and Tags & Categories inside Quickr. I got positive reactions on all of them but maybe mostly on the Tags & Categories session. More on that in a later posting.

After CU I flew over to Västerås, Sweden to visit my family over there. 5 days of visiting with my father and mother and siblings was just great. In only a few days I managed to eat both moose, Swedish craw fish and Swedish roe deer. All superbly prepared by my sister and sister-in-law. The chanterelle sauce that we had with the roe deer was unbelievable.

Monday evening I left Sweden and flew back to London where Carl Tyler picked my up at the airport and I got to spend a couple of nights with his parents outside London. Tuesday we went to Oxford where we walked around for a few hours looking at the old universities there. Very nice. Thank you Carl (and Carl’s parents) for a couple of wonderful days.

It is great to be out on these speaker engagements and visit friends you only see a few times a year but boy is it nice to back home with family again.

Collaboration University 2008 - Chicago & London

So I’m off to Collaboration University after the last few weeks being very hectic. Wrapping up a few customer projects needed to be finished before it all starts and of course the CU slides and demo code as well. I’m out for almost 3 weeks straight this time, first Chicago and then off to London for the repeated event there.

The last few days I get to back to the old country (Sweden) and visit with my family there. I’m also visiting with a couple of old friends preparing for our football trip to New York in October-November. More on that later.

I have three sessions at CU this year:

  • Quickr Custom Themes: What a Difference a Version Makes!
  • Leveraging the Dojo Toolkit, JavaScript, and JSON in Quickr
  • Tags and Categories in Quickr: How to Add, Use and Present

I’m really looking forward to Collaboration University this year. Record attendance and great locations are going to make a great conference.

CU there.
