Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was lucky enough to attend the IBM Pulse 2014 conference for free by supporting the conference staff as one of the many hallway monitors. Despite staying on my feet for several hours until lunchtime, I thought it was fun to direct wandering attendees to the MGM Grand Garden Arena, North Pavilion, Marquee Ballroom, or Conference Center rooms.
For example, I received common questions like “Where’s room 108?”, “Where’s lunch being served?”, or “Where’s the Expo?” Luckily, I studied the MGM conference maps beforehand! But the best part was seeing familiar IBM TRIRIGA faces like @JoyceTse, @Melanie_Antonio, and @SmarterAssets, or meeting familiar names in person for the first time like @TristanOGorman1.
Hi, my name is Jay, and I’m an IBM TRIRIGA information developer at IBM. To give you a taste of my Monday at IBM Pulse, here are 55 photos which walk you from the general session in the Grand Garden Arena, to the breakout sessions in the Conference Center, to lunch in the North Pavilion, and finally to the Solution Expo in the Marquee Ballroom. Definitely an eye-popping experience!
Do I have an update?
Eight months after climbing through the IBM clouds, I descended into the DevLearn Expo!
