NOBOUG Winter 2008

FYI, NOBOUG’s February 12, 2008 has been cancelled due to weather!

I’ve accepted an invitation to speak at the February 12, 2008 Northern Ohio Business Objects User Group (NOBOUG) in Cleveland, Ohio. I will present Secure Universes with Restriction Sets, my Insight 2007 presentation. Last February, I presented my Insight 2006 presentation at NOBOUG with massive snowfall. If you’re a Cleveland-area Business Objects or Crystal Reports enthusiast, I hope to see you there!

One thought on “NOBOUG Winter 2008”

  1. Hi Dallas,

    Great to see a blog about Business Objects, there isn’t too many around. I watch the feed from your site and a few others, but I stumbled across it again today trying to figure out where to get my Migration training done in Australia.

    I’ve just started a BO blog too if you’re interested (

    Kind regards,
    Josh Fletcher
