We had our very first FIM Team User Group meeting yesterday, with attendees from all around the world. There was some good FIM chat going on in the messaging window – I think this will really be the best thing about these meetings, especially for those who, like I was for a long time, fly solo in their FIM work and don’t get much chance to talk to other people doing the same thing.
As it was a “getting to know you” meeting we did a number of polls. There were around 40 people in the meeting, and around 25 to 30 people responded to each question.

- Primarily Ops: 50%
- Primarily Dev: 30%
