Submitting and getting accepted to present a talk at any conference is just the first step. If you want to ensure you get a good turnout to your talk, you need to work the attendees. A task that becomes even more difficult when you’re scheduled to speak on the last day.
It’s at times like these that you need to grind and hustle – not to mention recruit all the help you can get.
Being my first time in Austin, Texas I was slightly disappointed to be honest. I was expecting, boot-wearing, tobacco chewing and big hat wearing cowboys walking around open-carrying. But Austin is actually a really nice place – albeit a little hot for a London-boy like me.
Spiceworks put on a great show though and AlienVault won the ‘showstopper’ award as voted by attendees – a great win for the team.
Next I move onto Anaheim for (ISC)2 Congress – which is a con I am always looking forward to every year!
