Last week, I presented at Techorama Belgium 2018 in Antwerp.
In terms of travel, this was the ideal event for me, since the organization scheduled my presentation for the last time slot on Day 1. Being an early starter, this meant I could work a normal day (for me, that’s 7AM – 3:30PM), then travel to Antwerp, throw my slide deck together and still be in time for the session, starting at 5:45 PM.
On Wednesday May 23, I arrived at around 16:30 at Kinepolis. I talked to a couple of speakers and a couple of attendees, who happened to be former colleagues. Then, I put the finishing touches to my slide deck and headed over to room 16 for my presentation on Azure AD Connect.
After my session it was time for the Techorama speaker buffet in the Lindner Hotel, next to Antwerp Central train station. Leaving my car at Kinepolis for the night, I hopped on the shuttle to the hotel, checked in, and enjoyed the evening with my fellow speakers.
After a good night’s rest and some breakfast, I opted for the shuttle again to get me back to Kinepolis. Hanging out with some of the speakers, having lunch and attending sessions were the highlights of this day.
Thanks to all the people attending, sitting in on my session and, of course, the people who stuck around after my session for the interesting discussions. Thanks to the Techorama organization for making it better every year and, of course, my fellow speakers who are always fun to hang out with.
