O yes, thanks to Gill Cleeren, Community Days is the place to be in Belgium on June 21st, for the 6th time in a row! And what’s even better, at least one of the sessions will be a LightSwitch session, presented by yours truly.
I proposed two possible talks to Gill, and he just confirmed that at least one will definitely be on the agenda! Which is awesome news, but also implies I have to prioritize. Tell me, if you are / would be attending Community Days, which session would you prefer?
