I had the pleasure of speaking at a 2-day DAPUG workshop in Denmark on October 23-24. The work shop was a full house and sold out. I enjoyed the interactive crowd very much.

Very special thanks go out to Jens Fudge (MVP) and his family. They were awesome hosts for a couple of days after the workshop.
