Busy week!

Andy's presentation at the Microsoft Access User Group on Wednesday was made more tricky when his Microsoft co-presenter failed to show, but it takes more than that to put Andy off and he carried on regardless with his presentation on linking Access applications to SQL Server data "in the cloud".

I did my "Deploying Access Systems" presentation just after lunch and just about managed to keep the audience awake! If you're interested, you can download the presentations yourself at:

This week has also seen 3 presentations delivered to potential new Tracker clients (all are asbestos surveying businesses), some Tracker training, a couple of client account management meetings and this all happened while our team fell to pieces with most contracting shingles! Who said that running a small business was easy...

Presenting at the Microsoft Access User Group tomorrow

Andy and I are both presenting at the Microsoft Access User Group tomorrow in Reading.

Andy is talking about SQL Server "in the cloud" and how Access can connect to it. I'm doing an hour later in the day on deploying Access apps and how best to support them.

I'm also delivering some training for Tracker Web Server in the morning and then showing Tracker to a potential new client on Thursday. Busy couple of days!
