Min-e-Con is Here!
As the statement below says, we have ended our annual conference in its original format. However, we have just created the 2011 Min-e-Con to be held May 24 - 26, 2011 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Click here to learn all the details.
Statement from Jeff Rhodes
President, Platte Canyon Multimedia Software Corporation
We have reluctantly decided to end The ToolBook User’s Conference/e-Learning
Authoring Conference. While we know that this conference has been a
professional highlight for many of you, we feel the need to concentrate on our
core strengths, namely creating software for Improving the Lives of Training
It has been a joy to get to know all of you who have attended the conference
over the past twelve years. Thank you for all your support. Rest assured, we’ll
spend the time that we would have used on the conference making our product
line even stronger. We also may try to organize some webinars or other online
events as well.

This was my first TBCON after years of wanting to go. Even though my colleagues have raved about it, it far surpassed my expectations. The collegiate tone one gets from this list serve was magnified in spades by Jeff's and his family's gracious hosting, fun, everyone's open and helpful contributions of knowledge, fun, sharing of files and know-how, and...did I mention fun and sharing knowledge?
You put on an impressive conference – can’t wait ‘til next year’s!
By the way, great experience at my first TBCON last week! Good presentations, friendly people, and good take aways! Can't wait to get my hands on the presenter's materials!
Excellent, excellent! You folks make us feel like "royalty." Thank you very much!
It was information overload--a good thing. I just wish I could be in two or more places at once.
Exceeded my expectations.
My favorite part was the atmosphere and being able to talk and have discussions with the TBK experts and SumTotal Systems staff.
Much different than a 'typical' conference. People freely sharing ideas, tips, and actual ToolBook/OpenScript/etc. files! Exactly what I was hoping for. Well done!
This is just a short "Thank You" to everyone that was at TBCON this year. This was my first experience, and it was GREAT! I learned a lot and got a lot of great ideas. I dealt with some concepts that have been really hard for me to grasp, but was explained them in a manner that I could understand. Not to mention all the info on VBTrain and the .Net stuff. On that note, this is to anyone that has never been to TBCON, "GO"! Not only is it a good time, but a excellent learning forum. Do what ever it takes to make it to the conference next year, beg the boss, scrounge up the change for travel and expenses, whatever it takes, it will be worth it.
Best run/most valuable conference I've ever attended.
