So, it looks like we are all headed to San Diego at the end of the month to attend GWAVACon. I think we have quite an entourage planning to attend. I am certainly going, as is Dean but also Phil and Daniel who are the 2 T+C product managers as well as a lot of other Novell management and techies. We will, of course, be showing what's coming in GroupWise Bonsai as well as doing many Teaming+Conferencing sessions. This will be my first GWAVACon so I am intruiged to see how it all works, and it is certainly good practice for Brainshare, which is only 10 weeks away.
Talking of Bonsai the beta is doing great. We are having a lot of participation and we have a queue forming in case any of the other sites drop off. Our beta manager, who is new to the GroupWise beta program but a seasoned veteran with other products was amazed at just how much interest and how many requests there are from customers desperate to be on the program. I spend a good portion of my days at the moment saying 'no' to customers wanting to join, which is a nice problem to have really. I wish we could accommodate everyone but it simply becomes too hard and time consuming to manage effectively.
