I learned about Bob from Andrew Sonner, who worked with me on a FEMA contract. I have mentioned the value of the exchange between knowledge seekers, forum moderators, and forum participants at BO courses, at customer sites and at meetings related to Knowledge Management. The word has not spread as far as it should have; so many missed learning opportunities!!!
Suggestion: Consultants on engagements, or Business Objects instructors teaching a course should relate stories of their successes using the forum.

Great site... I just send al my collegues (BI and DWH unit)
a search engine sent me - specifically, as requested, it was google.
I found out about Bob from the Osborne Business Objects book.
Previous searches yielded nothing...I knew that an online presence had to be [i:320e08d894]somewhere[/i:320e08d894] out there but I came up with nothing. :wah: Perhaps I was searching feebly because 'I found Bob' via Google after registering.
I migrated from the listserv. :)
[Business Objects forum] in Google gets you to BoB.
First two links are to the official french site, 3rd link is to here :)
I came to know of BoB via the McGraw Hill book: The Complete Reference: Business Objects, by Cindi Howson.
I learned about BOB from a colleague. She was told about it from a BO instructor who taught an Advanced Designer class in Montreal.
I think it was a google search...either way I am glad I found it. =)
edit: I think I searched for "Business Objects forum"
Found the site by Gooogle search of Business Objects Forums
Google Search for - BusinessObjects Universe SDK
went through quite a few sites before hitting this one, am glad I stuck it through :)
I learned about BOB at the International Conference.
I was impressed this week...I was at a potential client and I was asked if there were any forums...I mentioned that we should go to www.busobj.forumtopics.com ...they said "OH! You mean BOB!!!" I was thrilled to find out that when they were getting references from other BO customers that they said they couldn't live without BOB!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I heard it from my friend and am glad to know about this forum.
I used a Google search looking for help with BO. This site was in the results.
A search engin sent me to bob, it was google.co.uk - it was near the top of the list and was what I was looking for.
I learned about BOB while doing a search on google for business objects help and came across it.... and really pleased i have as its provided me with so much help and info. And this is before ive haad the confidence to post questions ....
Thanks so much everyone :D
