My Lotusphere / Connect justification letter
Thanks to Hitesh, who filled in my contact form for reminding about this!
8 years ago (!) I wrote a nice little document justifying my attendance at Lotusphere 2005. As we get nearer to Connect '13, it might come in useful again for a few people. So here it is. A quick document explaining what to your boss why he or she should be paying for you to go to Orlando in January.
Of course, it may badly need updating - but the principles are sound. It's good training. It will let you plan your IBM investment for the next year and it's fantastic networking. Thankfully I won't be needing to use it myself this year but consider it an open source document. If you have comments or updates - let me know or post them here.
