My first trip to SUGCON EU was full of honors and humbling. First, simply to be selected and make the list of only around 60 or so speakers out of a large pool of talented speakers and sessions. Second, simply to see all the other sessions and the innovation that is taking place across the Sitecore ecosystem at such an amazing rate.
I was present to see Lars Floe Nielsen ask Pieter Brinkman and a small team of "Retired MVP's" (former MVP's now Sitecore employees) to do some "real work". In just two weeks they built a SitecoreUG.com clone that included HOLOLENS integration! It was awesome and even Lars joking "agreed it was slightly innovative".
