Shoot-Out at the FME Corral – Miso’s FME World Tour Event
Having built up a reputation for delivering events with a difference, miso’s FME World Tour 2015 did not disappoint. In fact, delegates scored it as one of the best events they’ve ever been to.
Hosted at miso’s headquarters in Birmingham, the event proved so popular that it sold out within weeks. Delegates travelled from across the UK to attend, with some coming from as far as Durham and Kent.
Rather than sticking to the same old format each year, miso always tries to raise the bar by making the sessions even more innovative and engaging. This year they added a fun and thought-provoking session called “Beat the Geek”. Teams of delegates were pitted against miso’s own FME experts to solve common business problems and technical challenges.
Another new and interactive addition to the agenda was the “Shoot out at the FME Corral.” Delegates, raring to go in their cowboy hats, engaged in a showdown against other teams to build the best FME workbench. As a follow up to the day, they were also sent the workspace for use in their own work.
miso also kept some of the old favourites, including the FME Pub Quiz and a presentation from Aaron Koning, from Safe Software. He had travelled all the way from Safe HQ in Canada, to discuss the latest and greatest developments in FME 2015.
The ultimate goal of the event was for everyone to leave buzzing with new concepts and ideas that they could then apply in their own workplace.
Michael McGuiness from Birmingham City Council commented: “A fantastic event, well put together and run. It was impossible to come away not having learnt something new.”
Tom Wicks from Atkins also added: “I found it an engaging, entertaining and useful event that catered for all abilities.”
