SPICEWORLD 2018 Pictures Post

Community Manager - please move me in the appropriate category if this is wrong. I've been searching for a place to post my pics and see others' pics from Spiceworld.

I don't want to overload the servers - so here is my link https://photos.app.goo.gl/cw4RmBaBL92xZ2cL6

I did not take very many pictures -especially not selfies -as you can probably tell..

Post-Spiceworld - What did you learn?

Hello hello!

This year's Spiceworld was a blast, but now comes the fun part- writing up what you learned to justify the trip to your CFO/Director/etc. How do you typically write this up? Bullets or paragraphs? In-depth technical detail, or broad picture? This was my first time, so I'd love to hear how you typically present your trip to the higher ups.

Spiceworld

Hi,

I attended spiceworld last week.  I was wondering whether there is a site somewhere that lists all of the exhibit vendors, as well as recaps of the sessions.

Thank you SpiceWorld 2018!


I don't know about you but the entire Webroot team had a great time and a really successful SpiceWorld. It's hard to believe that SpiceWorld 2018 has come and gone but I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth to talk with our team or pulled me aside during the event. It was GREAT to meet you in person and put a name with a face. One of the best things about this conference is to make that personal connection with the folks you talk to day-in and day-out on the community. It's incredibly powerful.
We're always looking to improve so if there's something that you'd like to see us do or do differently next year, let us know!
Thanks again to everyone who made this SpiceWorld the best one yet!

What is your SpiceWorld budget?

Hi folks!

I've been hoping to attend SpiceWorld for several years. I have been working to convince my boss of the benefit of me attending unsuccessfully. I think my best bet to attend is to finance the trip myself. With that said, aside from scoring a $99 ticket by this Friday for next year, what is the average cost to attend SpiceWorld?

Can you please share your ballpark cost including hotel, food, transit, etc? I'm aware airfare varies depending on where I'm coming from, but everything else should be relatively similar for everyone. If I know how much I need between now and next year it makes it that much easier to save up.

Thanks and hope to see you all in Austin next year!

-Sean

Everyone is a customer - Wed AM Session 2018 Spiceworld

Uploading the "Everyone is a customer" session I presented on Wed @ 9:30am .... fun times! Session is actually about 35mins worth of speaking and left as an open discussion afterwards so that you could get all sides from L1 techs to CIOs (I have had that range of attendees at the sessions) along with their opinions which helps. I modified it at the last minute as I had some changes, but the uploaded one on here is the final one I presented that day.

I have had many years of both customer service and then working in IT as well, and meshed both together to try and provide both the best technical AND customer service to make the end user experience as good as possible and also empower the end users too. This means that not only do they learn some ways to make their jobs easier, but also makes IT's life easier by meaning the end users don't...

Courtyard extra parking charges SpiceWorld2018

Hi Everyone.

I am back home from another great conference.  Going over my hotel bill to submit for reimbursement, and notice that i was charged for 5 nights worth of parking at 35.00 a night.  I did not have a car.  I am thinking it was just a mistake, i called them and they fixed the issue.  Here is the thing, my friend Eric who also stayed at the Courtyard had the same "mistake" on his bill.

So if you stayed at the courtyard please take a look at your bill and make sure there are not any extra charges you paid for. 

Besides that I enjoyed my stay at that hotel.

Qaudrotech error at SW2018 free stuff

Hi everyone,

If you attended Spiceworld 2018 and we got to meet you, thanks for taking time to talk or at least listen. Amy and I had so much fun but now are tired for sure. Quadrotech sponsored a literature drop at the Keynote speaker Bruce Schneier and he was Awesome. He made me think about security and big data a bit differently.

To get to the point of this post, Quadrotech had a bit of an opps. We heard that the link didn't work and with in seconds and had our team on it. It was fixed and wanted to let you know that if you wanted to head back over to the site on the picture below you can still register or not. The drawing will be held on Sunday and we will ship it out to you. So I guess it is a good thing for those of you that didn't make it because now you too can sign up too.

Frank Abagnale at Spiceworld 2018: A fraudster turned crime buster

AUSTIN, TEXAS — IT pros play many roles at work, sometimes comprising the entirety of theirdepartment. They spend their days wearing countless hats, assuming new professional identities on a near-daily basis as the work requires.

Frank Abagnale, too, has worn many hats — but unlike most attendees at SpiceWorld 2018 here, his early roles were far from authentic (or even legal).

As portrayed in the 2002 Steven Spielberg film Catch Me If You Can, Abagnale pursued a prolific career of cons, deception, and fraud that started before the age of 18 and ended with a string of prison sentences.

As a sequel, Abagnale put his criminal insights in the service of the FBI to help law enforcement take down the sort of cybercriminals IT pros guard against every day.

"As you know, I've had a lot of people tell my story," Abagnale told a packed keynote...

AnnieCannons at SpiceWorld: Teaching IT skills to human-trafficking survivors

AUSTIN, TEXAS — In Tuesday's powerful final session at SpiceWorld 2018, AnnieCannons co-founders Jessica Hubley and Laura Hackney joined Spiceworks Vice President of Business Operations Nicole Tanzillo to discuss their organization's work: empowering survivors of human trafficking by equipping them with the skills they need for careers in technology.

Merriam-Webster defines human trafficking as "organized criminal activityin which human beings are treated as possessions to be controlled and exploited (as by being forced into prostitution or involuntary labor)." This global business reaps hundreds of billions of dollars annually from the forced labor of vulnerable people, especially women. Without other skills and training to support themselves and their families, millions of people are trafficked every year — whether into forced...

Shaping up to be one of the BEST SpiceWorlds !

There is still another full day left in SpiceWorld but I am already feeling that this has been one of the best in the last few years.
--the multiple big name keynote speakers is huge
--the increase in vendors creates quite the buzz in the exhibit area
--love the startup zone
--the user sessions seem to go deeper than last year
--SpiceWorker seemed real enthused about the new direction of development
--some real good foosball players in the chill lounge :-)

What do others think?   How do you think 2018 SW compares to the last 3 or 4 ???

The future of incident response: Bruce Schneier keynotes SpiceWorld

AUSTIN, TEXAS — IT pros in search of the inside line on security and privacy flocked Tuesday afternoon to hear from renowned cryptographer and security legendBruce Schneier. The theme of his keynote address at SpiceWorld 2018: We live in a world where vulnerabilities are everywhere, and we got here for a variety of reasons.

For one thing, technology is often developed quickly for a market with an appetite for fast, cheap products that neglects to design for security by default.

As an example, Schneier cited the internet. "The internet was never designed with security in mind," Schneier declared, because when it was initially being developed, "the internet wasn't being used for anything important."

And while computers have gained ubiquity as highly extensible, general-purpose machines capable of doing almost anything, that same...
