I had a great night last night I attended the first BTUGUK (BizTalk User Group UK) event. It was held at the Microsoft location in London. The session was hosted by Richard Blewett who I think did a great job presenting some of the new features in BizTalk 2006. He made the session interactive to find out what were the pain points and also the features that you liked. There were about 25 people who attended from as far away as Birmingham, Poole and Kent.
There were lots of offers from people to help support the next event which I think is always a good sign. We are hoping to have more events in different locations so please let us have feedback on locations and content. Richard is hoping to get a web site up and running for the user group so that you can share information but this will take a bit of time.
All the attendees left contact details with Gavin king (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be notified about future events. If you missed out and want to be included please contact us. The user group is independent of Microsoft but we are supporting it to help get it going.
