INETA Europe - Blogging and Contact Information
It is great to see Damir blogging here! I had the chance to meet Damir at TechEd in Amsterdam and get to talk with him about all of his contributions to community in Europe. They are working on some great things with INETA Europe and other community efforts like Codezone.

There are many people blogging their experiences including Ian Pearshouse, Caroline Philips, Jason Kemp, and of course, my team mates, Mario, Shreyas and Morris. There ......

The competitions are well underway and the level of excitement is high! We are all having fun despite being tired - long nights of competition.
