Meeting Dutch Questionmark users in Utrecht

Posted by Steve Lay

When I told a friend that I was visiting Utrecht recently, they said I should make time to see the fantastic railway museum there. So I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that the 2012 Dutch Questionmark Users Conference was being held in the Spoorwegmuseum.

The presentations (in Dutch) from some of the sessions are available online from the conference home page. An Excel add-in developed by Michel Duijvestijn at the Hogeschool Rotterdam is also available for download. The plug-in allows results downloaded from your Questionmark repository to be adjusted, e.g., to remove any unwanted questions, and then re-calculated! Our Dutch customers are always very innovative in the way they use Questionmark technologies.

I would like to thank our hosts, Stoas, for putting on such a fantastic event. Sadly, my Dutch was not up to following all the proceedings,but everyone was very kind when I had to stand in on the panel session at the last minute. There were lots of interesting topics discussed, and there was plenty of interest in Questionmark Secure and our mobile delivery solutions.

All in all it was a great day out, as I hope these pictures will convey.
