[EN] Do ya wanna get rocked? T -48 hours till KulenDayz & MVP CEE Summit!

LOGO__KulenDayz2012 I expected that August 2012 will be free of the community, conferences, meetings – and have some free days. I was wrong. As always. Except wedding party (not mine fortunatelly) and three days near Baltic Sea Coast with fantastic ladies I’m going to my first MVP Summit. Wait! In August? Easy. It’s not full MVP Summit (held as always in Feb/Mar in Redmond). Inside one of the biggest south European community conference: KulenDayz 2012 I’m going to MVP CEE & Italy Summit 2012.

KulenDayz 2012 is prepared by Microsoft Community Osijek together with Microsoft Croatia with support from INETA, Hupro, MIC Varaždin and Mreža. Conference is bringing together leading IT Experts from the region with local IT Community and giving them a chance to spend a weekend filled with attractive sessions presented by top speakers and relaxing at Kopacki Rit Nature Park and enjoying unspoiled nature.

MVP CEE & Italy Summit is more like a social event, an opportunity to meet other MVPs from the Region, networking and mingling with each other, and get to know the Microsoft vision for the next Fiscal Year (FY13, which started on July, 1st).

My trip for this event is not easy: by bus from Wroclaw to Warsaw, next night train from Warsaw to Budapest and after by daily train form Budapest to Osijek. I’m happy to stay one day in Budapest (for my lovely sightseeing) on Thursday. On Friday we have day for MVP’s and on Saturday many great sessions in seven tracks: Office 365, Development,Database, Private Cloud, Windows Phone, Project Management, Chalk & Talk

Amazing, isn’t? But of course sessions are not most important. For me the community, old friends and new faces are most important. Sharing knowledge, experiences and ideas. Hope to meet a lot of my friends from European community. So…


Let’s get, let’s get, let’s get, let’s get rocked
Let’s get, let’s get, let’s get, let’s get rocked
Let’s go all the way
Get it night’n’day
Come on, let’s get, let’s get, let’s get, let’s get rocked
