Keep up with the @SCUGDay5 buzz on Twitter #TE14D5


It’s truly amazing what happens when the System Center community comes together and makes such a special event possible. It was a painstaking 4 weeks for Maarten Goet, Cameron Fuller and myself. I don’t know how we were able to pull this off while trying to manage our day jobs. J The logistics around the event were nowhere near what we expected. From exceeding our initial budget by over double, to having to rebrand two times and once just a week before the event, to committing generous financial supporters, to coordinating with FOUR different venue vendors, to too many other things to list. Day-5 had some amazing presenters from all over the world that quenched our thirst for a 5th day System Center. As if that wasn’t enough we threw the icing on the cake by finishing off the event by unwinding to Maarten’s and Cameron’s famous System Center Trivia, over a local Texas brew. We’re immensely proud of the finished product that was “Day-5” and the amount of raw value the community received. We are also grateful to Microsoft and Microsoft Partners making this event financially possible for the community.
