Yes you read the title of this blog post correctly!
Recently I was doing a bit a clear out and I came across a CD of the UKOUG Conference proceedings from 1999. That was my second UKOUG conference and how times have changed.
The CD contained all the conference proceedings consisting of slides and papers.
Here are some familiar names from back in 1999 who you may find presenting at this years conference, some you might remember as being a regular presenter and some are still presenting but not at this years conference.
- Jonathan Lewis
- Carl Dudley
- Fiona Martin
- Peter Robson
- Duncan Mills
- Kent Graziano
- John King
- Toby Price
- Doug Burns
- Dan Hotka
- Joel Goodman
The 1999 Ralph Fiennes did the Keynote speech. I queued up afterwards to get a signed book but they ran out with three people ahead of me :-(
The agenda grid was a bit smaller back then compared to now.
I'll see you again in Birmingham this year, in a few days time :-)
I'll be presenting during the Super Sunday and then again on the Tuesday.
When you are at the UKOUG Conference, addend some sessions that are not in your area. You never know what you might learn. Also get out and about, and explore the Christmas market just outside the conference venue.
