It's time to start again. A new conference with a new name. Back in November we announced that we were leaving TeamsFest behind and moving forward with Teams Nation. It's a decision that we were thinking about for some time given we wanted to become more inclusive of our audience outside of Europe, but we also wanted to avoid conflict with other parties who had a desire to use the name. Now - as then - we wish them the very best and hope it brings them as much success that we had the last few years. So what have we been up to since then? Over the last two months, we have worked on consolidating our old user group, the European Teams User Group into the Teams Nation Monthly meetup and so far we've have had some awesome sessions from speakers such as Hadrian Nessim Socard, Tomasz Poszytek, Joao Ferreira and Albert Hoitingh. With more attendees than ever before, our meetup group has grown to over 150 members in a really short space of time. We've set up on Twitter. We've set up on LinkedIn. I think Vesku mentioned he spun something up on Insta. It's gone well so far with the kind of incremental growth that is really nice to see. We're already booking up for the monthly meetup into June
So it begins! The registration for TeamsFest is open and we are now on the countdown to the event on Wednesday October 7th. All speakers have confirmed. We have our moderators. We have our schedule.
The Call for Speakers for our third TeamsFest event closes at midday on Friday 31st July. Under 5 days away. I can't quite believe we are here!
I can't believe that TeamsFest is nearly here - I really can't. It seems like only yesterday that Adam, Vesa and I started the call for speakers. This was back in december when we all felt like there was a certain luxury of time. Yet this year has been insanely busy - and I guess we should have known better given we did this back in October for Oktoberfest! Organising a conference has been one of the most rewarding things we've ever done. It's exhausting! - but there's nothing quite like it. That's why we wanted to do it again. We love Teams, we love the community, and we really wanted to bring some of the most passionate and best minds in the field together for a day of celebrating what it is that we love doing. If you love teams, love community and are thinking about joining us then here is 10 reasons why I think you should join us
