My colleagues and I on the Lotusphere content team received a nice vote of confidence today -- the summary conference ratings from Lotusphere 2007 were incredibly positive.  One particular highlight says that we picked the right sessions for the conference:

"In addition, in 89% of the sessions (up from 75% in the last two years), the majority of attendee respondents said that the information presented in the sessions affected their decision to further consider or implement the IBM/Lotus product or solution discussed in the session."
Cool beans.

So what were the top-rated sessions?  Based on the ratings for quality and relevance of information (not the speaker rating), the top sessions were:
BP311 -- The Great Code Giveaway -- Web 2.0 edition Rob Novak and Viktor Krantz, SNAPPS
HND207 -- WebSphere Portal and Lotus Domino: Getting them talking... Kathleen McGivney, IBM and Paul Mooney, Bluewave
BP404 -- Virtual approaches to development using VMWare Carl Tyler, Instant Technologies
JMP205 -- Sametime 7.5 Wes Morgan, IBM
BP104 -- Worst Practices in Lotus Domino environments Bill Buchan, HADSL and Paul Mooney, Bluewave
ID109 -- Lotus Notes hints, tips, and tricks Alan Lepofsky, IBM
HND105 -- The ultimate makeover of a Lotus Domino site using CSS Scott Good and Henry Newberry, Teamwork Solutions
JMP301 -- JavaScript and AJAX JumpStart Scott Good, Teamwork Solutions
AD108  -- Best Practices for Creating Portlets with IBM WebSphere Portlet Factory Ruth Seltzer, IBM
HND104 -- AJAX for IBM Lotus Domino Hands-on Scott Good, Teamwork Solutions

All of those sessions scored an amazing 2.94-2.97 out of 3.0 on quality and relevance.  Another 25 sessions scored above 2.85.

While these scores are an incredible accomplishment, there are few surprises in there.  These names represent standout talent in our industry -- and community -- and it's great to see them recognized as such.
