Presenting at Rittman-Mead Forum in Atlanta this May

Just a quick note –

I’ll be presenting this year at Rittman-Mead’s first US based forum.  This year its in Atlanta May 26th-27th.   There will be a whole host of different speakers there – I’m looking forward to attending all of the sessions.

One cool thing about this forum is that it is designed for architects and developers who’ve been using OBI for a while.  That means no marketing or roadmap fluff, and no intro to OBI sessions.

Space is limited so sign up now!
