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.

It was a great conference. I only regret is that I had to leave a little early (missed the Tuesday night activities). I will be back next year.
This TB community is very collegial. I'm glad I finally got to attend TBCON.
My favorite part was all the helpful ideas that materialized when it became known I had a "code" problem.
Love the sessions, the networking, and the warm, friendly environment! Super Help Desk!
My favorite parts were 1) the people and getting to know how other people utilize ToolBook and 2) how the instructors and staff were willing to share.
The community of developers attracted to this conference is among the most talented and helpful groups I've ever encountered.
I really enjoyed my time at the conference. So much information and not enough time.
Excellent as always!
Thank you very much for hosting the ToolBook and VBTrain.Net conference - I had no idea how much I was truly missing by not attending. I'm so impressed by what I learned that I'll be sending other people from my office to attend as well - outstanding.
I thought the conference was excellent! You guys put on a great show. Hopefully, I can convince the powers to be to attend/present next year! Thank you again for all the hard work and long hours you put in to make it a success!
Great conference! How you guys pull it off with only 24 hrs in a day (and be able to play basketball) amazes me.
