SWMSCUG November 2016 Presentation Notes

I had an incredible time yesterday presenting at the Southwest Michigan System Center User Group. Douglas and team definitely know how to throw a user group. There were four expert presenters, a great venue, growlers of beer, fantastic hedgehog swag, and 12 giveaways!
