Coming up: My 10th Kscope!

In June 2010 I attended ODTUG Kaleidoscope 2010 in Washington D.C. I got this T-shirt:


But I didn't get just a T-shirt, I got an awesome experience. And most importantly I got to be part of a fabulous community of friends all over the globe without whom I wouldn't be where I am today.

Being hooked from day one, I've been to each and every Kscope since - attending, speaking, ambassadoring, volunteering at all community service days, having fun, helping others, getting help, and so on. In short: getting my yearly inoculation against LowTech Syndrome.

It's also taken me around the US:

Kscope13New Orleans, Louisiana
Kscope14Seattle, Washington
Kscope15Hollywood, Florida
Kscope16Chicago, Illinois
Kscope17San Antonio, Texas
Kscope18Orlando, Florida
Kscope19Seattle, Washington

And now I am just *so* ready to go to Seattle for Kscope19 (my 10th anniversary Kscope), where I've got a packed schedule:


Add to that:

  • Attending 8(ish) other presentations and learn something (still trying to decide which.)
  • Mingle and chat at Breakfast, Lunch, Coffee/Tea Breaks, Happy Hours, etc.
  • Visiting Exhibit Hall and see what's new.
  • Meet as many old and new friends as possible.

When flying back home, I'll be bushed, but believe you me - it's worth it!

I'm not alone in thinking Kscope is a great conference. I do have a couple of colleagues from Trivadis also speaking:

Dani Schnider will be speaking about:


We're all looking forward to seeing you all in Seattle for ODTUG Kscope19.
