PyCon 2011 Atlanta

March 31, 2011

We attended the PyCon 2011 in Atlanta, GA early this month, which is the longest conference I’ve ever attended (March 9-17, 9 days total) but it was so worth it! We’re mainly a Java shop and we’re fairly new to Python so PyCon really showed us what we can do with Python and all these tools available for it that could really help us with our development. After the conference we’re pretty much convinced that …

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2010

November 26, 2010

I was at the bookstore last week and I saw this book (or magazine, can’t remember) about this list of events to attend before you die. Among them were Mardi Gras, Carnivale, and then the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade came up. I was like, “hey, that’s coming up soon and it’s only about an hour away, I should check it out” and so I did.

I actually haven’t paid much attention to it before, I’ve …

July 25, 2008

Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day!

I know this post is a bit late.

Anyway, we attended the Tech Ed 2008 IT Professionals in Orlando, Florida last month (June 10-13) and it was a lot of fun! Lots to do and learn. There were a lot of people who attended (close to 9,500 according to Microsoft).

This is my first Tech Ed and I’m really glad I was able to go to this one. There were …

Heroes Happen Here

March 5, 2008

My co-workers and I attended the Microsoft launch event in New York yesterday for Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008, and SQL Server 2008. The theme of the event was “HEROES happen {here},” where the heroes are the IT workers who make the technology work.

Overall, the event was pretty good, there were a few technical glitches during the keynote but nothing major. All of their demos were running in Hyper-V.

I attended …
