Cool WES 2008 Newbie

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, this will be my first time as WES, I am there for the entire week and I am looking for suggestions as to what breakout sessions to attend, what events to attend and just some general advice for a newbie. I am arriving on the 11th and leaving on the 16th (from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada). Unfortunately I have taken all of the training courses offered, so I have a feeling there may be alot of downtime in my day (hence why I would like some suggestions).

Thanks!

I'm going from Edmonton too, will also by my first WES. Going from the 11th-19th(staying for the long weekend for a holiday

The big thing is to go to attendwes.com and look at the sessions and prioritize which ones you want to go to, and know that ahead of time, since the actual schedule of when they will happen isn't posted until WES starts.

Right on! Any suggested breakout sessions (maybe there are some similar to last year that are worth going to again that you recommend)

Also, I heard John Mayer is playing there? Are there parties there as well?

No there are no parties at wes at all. everyone is tucked up asleep in their own bed by um 10:00pm ready for the 07:00 breakfasdt breakout session.

Not sure why you started a new thread however - there's a great WES thread here http://www.blackberryforums.com/bes-...es-2008-a.html
