The launch tour is on a holiday break after successful events in Vancouver and Victoria last week. We had good turnout at the Vancouver event and the highlight of the day was the President of VANTUG, Graham Jones, up on stage during the keynote talking about the importance of the community. Coming from a user group background I couldn't agree more with what he said, the community (that is YOU) is important, and a great way to learn and have fun doing it.
At the end of the day we sat back and looked at what it has taken to get this far. Rick's earlier post covered the hardware, but what about all the behind the scenes stuff? Well take a look at this list! 8 Cities so far and.....
