I'm in the Netherlands for a software test drive. They've given us a video camera. It's not my thing to watch videos, preferring to read my news and entertainment, so I've already missed a ton of video opportunities. On the way over here I took a few days in New Orleans - but sadly I have no video to share for there. Wait, actually, I do have a minute of some street musicians singing one of my favorites standards, Saint James Infirmary. I'll try to have more trip video to share in a post soon.
The main purpose of this trip is to get feedback from some of our European clients on Stella beta software. We are looking to validate that we did not miss something big regarding this market's piping software needs. Until now, most of our feedback has been from North America, so it was time to talk more to people in the Northern European market. As a secondary aim we hope to gather input on enhancements desired for the next release. Along the way, we will make a video postcard documenting our visit -- I do hope it turns out well! We've been having fun with CADTEAM, the reseller here. Damian (on the left) may even be having too much fun with CADTEAM's senior technical application manager B.J.
