This year I and another colleague of my organization (Inter Access) will be participating in LEAP (Lead Enterprise Architect Program). This is a program organized by Microsoft Netherlands and initiated by Dik Bijl for Lead enterprise Architects. The program starts in the Netherlands with four afternoon sessions of presentations, discussions and cases and ends with one week in Redmond (January 2008) with presentations of the architect leaders of Microsoft and some off-topic entertainment in de evenings. I am looking forward to this to get acquainted with fellow architects from Holland. Kick off will be September this year. I will post my experiences later on this year.
