Had the chance to attend another LCTY in Cologne yesterday. The event was held by ebf, an IBM Premier Business Partner. It was free of charge and therefore, to be honest, my expectations were not to high.
But I was positively surprised. All session had a high standard. Traveler, Sametime 8.5, Connections & Quickr, LotusLive. Except one session held by an ebf consultant and anther one by a RIM representative , all others were presented by IBM staff .
The content was a good addition to the previous LCTY in Düsseldorf where I was not able to attend sessions on this topics.
Once again, Ed Brill opened the event with an one hour keynote speech. He answered questions from the audience at the end of his speech.
After 7 sessions in 7 hours including short coffee breaks and a fantastic lunch, I spent another 2 hours in the car to get home thru heavy traffic.
