In the last post
I described the Fest07 day organised by the Next Generation User Group
. I was sitting in the audience for the keynote when they gave out the NxtGen awards when I heard my name and discovered that I had won the NxtGen Coventry Best Presentation 2006/2007 award. I was delighted, surprised and humbled. Not sure in what order though. I gave a presentation back in March
at the NxtGen Coventry meeting which was entitled "10 Things To Know Before Internationalizing An Application". This is one of my favourite presentations and I had a great time giving the presentation and everyone seemed to enjoy it and there were lots of interesting questions and we all had a good time. It seems strange to get an award for doing something that was so much fun but I am delighted and very grateful. Thanks to everyone who came to the NxtGen meeting and was so kind with their voting. And thanks also to Rafal Lucawiecki for not speaking at NxtGen Coventry this year. Long may it continue.
