Testimonials Sent To Us After the Conference
latest project has improved an order of magnitude over what it
would have been without the conference.
- I have
only been to one worthwhile conference in the past five years
(and I go to 5 to 6 a year as attendee, exhibitor, and speaker
only because I have to for our business) and you know which
conference that is! All meat, no fluff and smart
presenters and attendees.
- TB Con
was the most worthwhile conference I have been to as there is
so much for someone like me.
- I got a
copy of the CD this week and it contains a lot of useful info.
If you couldn't attend the conference (unfortunately I didn't
make it this year) you can still purchase the CD from Platte
Canyon. It's worth it.
conference was great, the hospitality fantastic and the

a good mix of sessions for the beginner, as well as, the more
certainly assembled a great team of presenters. My only
problem was deciding on what stream to attend as every
presentation was right on the button. In a way, I was
relieved the whole thing came to a successful conclusion --
any more lectures and I would have suffered from information
overload. For what its worth, I recommend you stay with
your present conference format and scope, you have a winning
- Thank you
so much for the wonderful conference. It was my first
time and I came back so motivated. Since I am new with
Instructor I will likely have a lot of questions for the
listserv and others.
- I had a
fantastic time at the conference and am definitely looking
forward to next year. Thanks to both you and Jeff and your
support crew for a job well done. It's like summer camp for
the 'older' folks. Learned a lot & had fun in the process.
- I had a
wonderful time at the conference!! Besides it being very
informative, I really enjoyed the opportunity to talk with all
of the users of ToolBook and here about all of the exciting
and new ideas they have. I am looking very forward to
next years conference and hope by them I can consider myself
more of an experienced developer with ToolBook. Until
then, I shall continue pushing onward in my developments.
again for all of the hospitality extended in Colorado
for a well ran conference. You, Jeff and the rest of the
staff were so nice, friendly and so accommodating. Learned a
lot, met some good people and enjoyed the little Colorado
springs I saw

learned a lot (or exactly how much I don't know).
- TBCON was
well organized and enriching.

has been a real help in my job. I found tons of hints
and tips there and will be back in the future.

looking forward to getting the CD... I agree with the other
input you've gotten, I have lots of good ideas!

Jeff should really take pride in pulling off such an ambitious

incorporating ideas from the conference into some of our
projects. We are hoping to do a lot of customizing later
this fall. I'm already looking forward to next year's
great work at the conference. We look forward to seeing you
again next year in Colorado Springs!
Users Conference! I had a great time, accommodations
were surprisingly comfortable (Loomis Hall), food was out of
this world and of course the session themselves were A number
1! My Hats off to the entire team.
conference was great. I'm already using some of the
ideas I got from it, specifically designing my own user
interfaces using Photoshop. It's a lot easier than I
thought. I look forward to getting the conference CD so
I can review a lot of the other presentations.
- I very
much enjoyed the conference -- it was very well organized, and
I liked the "small" feeling of it with easy access
to the presenters and other attendees. The scope of material
covered was very good too. I'm looking forward to the CD as
well!!! (no pressure)
- As I told
Jeff, it was a great conference just loaded with real
solutions not promises of what you should be able to do.
for your enormous efforts on behalf of each attendee.
- It was a
great learning experience.
wanted to take this opportunity to tell you what a great
conference this was. I spent 20 years in the Conference
/ Convention / Trade Show business and I can say from
experience that this was one of the smoothest running, best
organized, valuable, and fun conferences I have ever been
around. You guys deserve a round of applause for such a
great job. I'm looking forward to being there next year.
again for an outstanding conference.

add my thanks for the great conference. I and my co-worker

useful information. Hope to be there next year!

I found something of value in every session I attended.
Great Job to you and Jeff.
