The unique highlight this year for me was the first ever ADF EMG social night held on Saturday, where I finally had the chance to meet so many ADF community members who I've known over the internet, but never met in person. What? You didn't get an invite? Oh well, better luck next year ;-)
Seriously our budget was limited, so in the happy-dictatorship sort of way I had to limit RSVPs to just 40 people. Hopefully next year we can do something bigger and better for the wider community.
Following directly on from the Saturday social night the ADF EMG ran a full day of sessions at the user group Sunday. I wont go over the content again, but to say thank you very much to all our presenters and helpers, including Gert Poel, Pitier Gillis, Aino Andriessen, Simon Haslam, Ken Mizuta, Lucas Jellema and the FMW roadshow team, Ronald van Luttikhuizen, Guido Schmutz, Luc Bors, Aino Andriessen and Lonneke Dikmans.
Also special thanks must go to Doug Cockroft and Bambi Price for their time and effort in organizing the ADF EMG room behind the scenes via the APOUC. To be blunt Doug and Bambi really do deserve serious thanks because they had to wear a lot of Oracle politics behind the scenes to get the rooms organized (oh, and deal with me fretting too! ;-).
Finally thanks to all the members and OOW delegates for turning up and supporting the group on the day. In the end the ADF EMG exists for you, and I hope you found it worthwhile.
Onto 2013 (oh, and the rest of OOW12 ;-)
