What to write at the end?
I did not get any more because I had to go back home to work. The journey by car was long enough and I had time to think about what it was like for 2 days in HCL Factory.
It was a great day with lots of interesting information, and it seems that HCL really means “Domino family” seriously.
I’m glad I could be there to meet a bunch of new people.
I’m glad I do not have to end after 25 years of working with Domino / Notes.
Thanks for the invitation, thanks to the all members HCL team.
You do not stop!!
I look forward to May – engage.ug and sutol.cz conference
