Down Under All Over Again

Categories: 2010 Mastering ... Melbourne Dave Rathbun @ 11:02 pm

I got an exciting email earlier… it seems that I have been invited to attend (and present at) the second annual Mastering Business Objects conference in Australia. In my opinion, the conference last year was an excellent event (and I’m not just saying that because I got to go.) I tend to prefer smaller gatherings like user groups or smaller conferences because I get to meet and interact with a lot more people. Oh, and I got to go surfing. :)

This year the event will move a bit south to Melbourne. Here are the specific details as recently published:

Mastering Business Objects
May 31 2010 – June 2 2010
Grand Hyatt, Melbourne, Australia

I will post more details as they become available.

It’s funny because just this evening I was talking to Daniel (my 3rd grader) and he wanted to know (as he was petting one of our family cats) if any cats were poisonous. I told him that as far as I knew, there was only one poisonous mammal, the platypus. Which is native to… Australia. :) After a quick visit to Wikipedia I know now that there are a variety of shrews that are also poisonous, but I felt good about the fact that I at least remembered the platypus.
