Those of you who know me, know I’ve been in the IT industry for many years now (15+).
Historically, this blog has been a means of me finding a medium of communication for my thoughts or concerns about various technology products, services, and/or issues. Fortunately, in late 2010 I had the great fortune to choose to quite my job, and my brother-in-law and I struck out on our own, founding SilverPoint Systems Ltd.
Three years, and 11 employees later, I still maintain to this day that leaving that previous position was the best professional decision I ever made.
A by-product of our success, has been the fact that I have not had the time to put towards keeping up my blog for the last 3 years. I hope to do a better job of this moving forward.
That being said, I haven’t always been as fortunate as I am now, in being able to attend various industry conferences. Let’s face it. They take time, and they take money. In my previous position, management wasn’t willing to part with the second. And until this year, we haven’t been able to part with the first. Thanksfully, as our team has grown and matured, we’re now in a position that allows us to go and attend these (IMHO, very critical) industry conferences.
So, it is with that which I find myself this week at IT Nation 2013, in Orlando, FL
After 17 hours of travel, I arrived Tuesday evening to have dinner and get a good night’s sleep.
On Wednesday morning, I awoke refreshed and ready to tackle the day. On my agenda? The Labtech (LT) Intro to Scripting seminar (I have been a LT user since 2008, however I have never had an opportunity to attend any of their formal training sessions).
Afterwards, it was on up to the main pavilion to squeeze through the growd (2400+ strong) of tech colleagues, to visit some key vendors on my list.
The key vendor I spoke to was Quosol, who offers a product we tried to implement about a year ago – with failing colours.
I look forward to Day 2, and the Breakouts and Labs it offers!Comments (0)
