Someone shared a funny observation this morning. Vancouver’ites are picky about the weather when they choose to come out to events. If it is raining – they like to stay indoors, if it is sunny, they like to stay outside. By all checks of the weather today, we had a perfect attendance day – overcast, but on the warm side. I particularly like the attendees out west – my third time out this way, very friendly IT Pros and Managers and very interactive.
One thing I have to remember – when I mention I’m from ‘out East – it means the “centre of the universe” to a Westerner – i.e. Toronto/Ontario… Where I’m from (WAY out East – as in the maritimes) we call Toronto/Ontario “Upper Canadians”. So what does someone from out West call a Maritimer? (I am leaving myself open with this question – use the comment link to have your say)
We had a really good turn out for this event – lots of great feedback on the evaluations – thanks so much for helping us understand what you want to know and hear about next time we’re out this way. Interestingly enough we had a number of questions both during the session and on the forms about the setup and configuration of “the demo bot” I lug around with me to do the tour. Because of the interest – I will post up some pictures and specific parts / guts that are inside it as well as the configuration for how we put it through it’s paces of simulating our reference network of 5 or 6 servers/systems at the same time.
As we mentioned during the event – the blogs are our primary method of keeping in touch and connecting back to you after an event. If you have any questions that you didn’t get a chance to ask or if you have some comments you’d like to make here to help us improve for next time – by all means – please use the comments link at the bottom of this post to get your voice heard.
In case you missed the URL for post event resources (hint – it was at the bottom of your agenda) here it is again.
