I just got a chance to look into a new offering at this year’s NextStep 2010 conference – Network Breakfast Roundtable discussions. While many of you like to write and share ideas online like I do, there is nothing better than getting to sit face to face and discuss a topic that is top-of-mind for you. This is what these sessions are all about.
What a great idea!
The Network Breakfast Roundtable discussions let you choose what you want to discuss and provides the forum to interact with many of OutSystems’ internal folks whom you may have had the opportunity to talk with on the phone, hear in a video, read a response in the Technical Forum, etc in a face to face setting. Each roundtable offers the opportunity to discuss the topics that are top-of-mind for you. Ask questions. Tackle challenges and share success. The discussion can go where you want to take it!
The NextStep planning team has worked with OutSystems R&D, Product Management and Solutions Deliver experts to define 11 topics on which to engage you, the OutSystems community.
