[EN] The Redgate Way in AD 2015

LOGO__FORG2015I’m very very happy to be Friend Of Redgate. I’m member of this fantastic program for last three/four years. My first “Friends of Redgate” sencence appears in my mailbox in fall of 2011. Since this moment I’m trying to be active in this way. My stardard job as Friend is part of evangelization – not as good as my friends Grant Fritchey {TWITTER|BLOG} or Steve Jones {TWITTER|BLOG}, but because they both always inspiring me, I’m trying to be better year by year – is speaking and talking about arround, with Redgate’s ingeniously simple stuff. Speaking continuosly need improvement. Session writing, demo testing, then presenting and collecting opinions is a hard job. Sometimes I failed, sometime I rocking. But improving my session is my primary goal for this year. Not only by quantity but with quality.

In next two weeks I will spend almost three days in Redgate Headquarter in Cambridge. First day will be oriented for two main focus:

     >> Friends of Redgate Things: opinions, ideas, project team exchange, project and product managers talk, constructive advices and more
