Click2learn ToolBook Design Awards
Congratulations to Teach Concepts AG and Guido Walter for winning the
Click2learn ToolBook Design Award in the category of "Most Creative Use of
ToolBook." Their beautiful application, "Tutorial db-direct MC 3.0," was
selected for its thorough realization of training needs.
Congratulations also to QLogic Corporation and Duane Engle for winning the "Best
ToolBook Online Training" category. Due to a logistics mix-up with conference
staff, this entry was not reviewed at TBCON but the award was made after the
Thank you to Click2learn for sponsoring this contest and Scott Anderson of
Click2learn for organizing the judging!
Mauro Rech took first prize again -- this year with John Hall helping out. Don
Bowyer’s fun web-enabled Connection’s game took second, while Simon Price and
Chet Kenisell finished third. The judging was especially difficult this year,
with the whole pack finishing tightly together. Other Hack Ack participants
were Ron Wincek, Virginia Bender, Bill Armstrong, and Peter Jackson all of whom
created and presented some wonderful applications. All six Hack Ack entries
plus "exhibition only" entries from Denny Dedmore and Michael Brophy are
distributed on the conference CD.
Very good mix of basic, intermediate, and advanced sessions from which to choose.
In addition to material gained from sessions, the cross talk after hours was invaluable. Excellent for contacts too!
First of all, it was awesome...lots to do and some really great sessions!!! The socials were really really fun, the lodgings were better this year (at least for me anyway in those new apartments), and there was lots to be learned!
I just wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great conference. You're really providing a service to all of us struggling developers. The facilities are great and the informal atmosphere builds a great sense of community.
I would highly recommend attending TBCON. My work colleagues and I have attended the past two TBCONs and feel that each year what we have learned at TBCON has accelerated our use and knowledge of ToolBook by at least 6 months. There are many sessions at TBCON that are good for beginners; but I would especially recommend the preconference workshops as they will enable you to get hands-on experience using ToolBook. Best of all, you will meet lots of people who will become valuable resources for you as you become more familiar with ToolBook.
