So I went to my first user group in the UK. I was really impressed on the quality. I had a great opportunity to meet Nathan Winters, the founder and interacted with people in the community. Another reason I had a great time at the user group *besides the pizza* was because Russell Kirk, CTO of Grey Convergence was speaking about Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and the crazy multi-thousand seat deployments he rolled out in the last few months. He was able to give the audience a very candid mid-level overview of the product as well as the do's and don'ts regarding deployment. It was engaging and very much a two-way presentation. I encourage anyone in the London are who deal with IT infrastructure to come out the next user group meeting which is hosted in Microsoft's brand new Victoria Street office!
