OF '08: “…setup to provide great content”

When I left my house on November 5th, 2007 to catch a ride to the airport it was a dreary, cool 5°C outside.  I arrived in Las Vegas later that afternoon to a rush of warm, dry air in my face, and pledged to get outside at some point over the next three days to walk the strip and get some sunshine.  Unfortunately, I never saw any of those nice 20° Vegas rays – there was far too much excitement going on inside Mandalay Bay during the day to pry myself away.

I’m certainly not alone in my enthusiasm for the OpenForce event.  Although different people have different reasons for attending the conference, they all seem to agree that the event in Las Vegas is unrivalled in its capacity to bring so members of the DotNetNuke community together, under one roof, in such an incredibly enjoyable environment.

Some of these members of the DotNetNuke community took some time out of their busy pre-conference schedules this week to tell me why they would be attending OpenForce ’08.  These individuals represent companies that have exhibitor booths on the conference floor, speakers presenting sessions, and who have graciously donated products/services to be given away at the event.

First up – Mitchel Sellers.  Many of the people in the DotNetNuke community are probably familiar with Mitchel.  He is the Project Lead for the DotNetNuke Documents Module.  He also writes many tutorial-style articles, and is in the process of authoring the upcoming book “Professional DotNetNuke 5 Module Programming.”   I met briefly with Mitch at OpenForce ’07, but am looking forward to chatting him up more this year.  ~BW

“OpenForce '08 is really shaping up to be a must attend event in my opinion,” says Mitchell.  “First of all I am very excited that I will have a booth in Expo Hall to finally have a way to truly meet members of the DotNetNuke community that I have had the opportunity to interact with over the past few years. So be sure to stop by booth 606 and say ‘Hello!’”

“In addition to the networking opportunities with community members speaker sessions are really setup to provide great content.”

“I am personally looking forward to Tom Kraak's presentation "Intro to Search Engine Optimization with DotNetNuke." I work with Tom on a regular basis, and he is one of the best DNN SEO people that I know, and I have personally benefited from his advice over the past few years. After attending his session I am sure that everyone will leave with information that can be used to improve our existing sites!”   - Mitchel Sellers is the CEO of IowaComputerGurus Inc.
