New Projects

OpenNTF at LoLa
OpenNTF was this week represented at LoLa where some promotional videos were shot. More on this soon.

OpenNTF Chairman Vince Schuurman and myself, Steve Castledine, will be in attendance at UKLUG in Edinburgh October 8th and 9th. As well as being available for general help, we will be doing a session on OpenNTF where we hope to cram as much useful information on OpenNTF past and present together with how we can help your organisation today in one hour as possible. We will be posting the slides here on that date. Fingers crossed get ready for some cool announcements.
