Last week I had the privilege to attend the Carolina Users Summit and from what I hear, it is one of the larger VMUGs in the US. I was asked to give a presentation on a recent community project that I collaborated with Ben Thomas on called vOpenData. The presentation goes into some background on the how the project got started, a deeper look at how it works and a live demo including some interesting stats that have not been shared before (CLTVMUG exclusive!).

I would like to thank everyone who attended the session and the great questions that were brought up. For those of you who missed it or could not attend, I have posted the presentation online and you can download it here. I hope everyone enjoyed it and hopefully you will contribute your data as well as help spread the word about vOpenData! Both Ben and I have been quite swamped with work and changes lately, so hopefully we will have some a nice update for everyone real soon!

Even if you know what vOpenData is, I think it is still worthwhile to check out the presentation as it contains a bunch more stats that have never been shared before. Here is a sneak peak of two that I am sure both Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman would be quite proud of:

Lastly, I would like to give a big thanks Charlie Gautreaux for inviting me out to the Charlotte VMUG! I had a great time and met a lot of really cool people!

Thanks for the comment!
