Day-Trip to Lingen

Yesterday I spent the day in Lingen to attend the CIM Lingen. The conference starts at 09:00, meaning I had to catch a train from Düsseldorf around 06:00.

The train consisted of old cars from many different eras, including this kind I remember travelling in as a kid in the 1980s.

At the conference

CIM Lingen is a conference with a special focus on Microsoft solutions and thus perfect for me. A lot of MVPs from Germany went there, presenting on Azure and Internet of Things among other things.

Best of all, the conference is entirely free to attend.

CIM Lingen Klein

It is held on the campus of Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences whose building was formerly a locomotive factory. And although it was equipped with all the amenities of a modern university, it still has a nice industrial flair and wide open interior spaces where there once was the factory floor.

Around town

Before and after the event there was some time to walk around and take in the sights. What a beautiful small town.

This was my first time at CIM Lingen, but I know that I’ll probably go again next year 09-Sep-2017.
