Just had an idea for a future Spiceworld Session - Security - Hacking - Dueling

Since we are always focusing on network Security and the issues surrounding that. I wonder if it could be setup so that you could get a Whitehat -Vs- Blackhat demonstration. Where the whitehat hacker is on the inside of a test network working on securing it while the blackhat is on the outside trying to break in.

During the session, they would both explain what is happening, and how we as IT can use this information to go and protect our own networks. This session could even be happening through out the day in a specific area of the convention. It could even be reset and the process could start over again as hacker tries to infiltrate the system.

I know that we have all heard this information many different times, but maybe a visual might help us to understand how it all happens. Thus giving us information to take back home to the...

SpiceWorld Startup Zone Returning for 2019!

Hey hey SpiceHeads - Adam here from the Marketing team. As you'd probably expect, the entire team is hard at work on all things SpiceWorld '19 so expect some news very soon across a number of fronts.

But today, I'm excited to share that the Startup Zone will be returning to SpiceWorld in September!

As you'll probably recall, the Startup Zone made it's first-ever appearance at SpiceWorld '18, and by all accounts - both yours and the startups who participated - it was a rousing success. You loved the opportunity to connect with startup companies innovating across a number of technology categories, and they loved connecting with you to hear your ideas, challenges, and ways they could better serve IT pros.

We're in the process now of building our invite list, and we'd love your input! Comment below with any IT-related startups you think...

Updates Posted to Spiceworld Page/Forum

Has anyone else noticed that the updates of Sponsors is slower to come in this year. With Spiceworld starting two weeks earlier. I generally use the Sponsors and Agenda to convince my boss that I should go because content is inline with the projects we have for the upcoming year.

How far from SpiceWorld are you? And are you planning to go?

So, SpiceWorld topics are being discussed. Now I'm Wondering, how far are you from Austin, and do you plan to go? (Even do you want to)

I'll start you off with an example:

  • I want to go.
  • I plan to go. (Have ticket to SW and hotel booking... life may change but that's the plan)
  • According to google maps: I'm  3,475 km away driving, or  "5 h 50 min+" flying. (2,883.79 km on  https://www.distance.to/Edmonton/Austin website)

Your turn. 🤣
