LANDesk Interchange ’14 was an absolute blast! Your loyal Spoon team trekked down to Las Vegas a few weeks ago to proudly represent LANDesk’s suite of virtualization products. We shared some hot new features, met other awesome LANDesk partners, and lost way too much money. (Seriously, those craps machines are totally rigged.)
On Tuesday, we were pretty excited to arrive at MGM Skylofts after a long morning of travel. The suite was incredible, and we immediately decided that we would have to throw a party.
Soon after settling in, we left to give our first Interchange presentation: “5 Powerful Reasons to Virtualize Your Apps Now.” Program Manager Victor Churchill led the talk and displayed a few exciting new pieces of Spoon technology. We demonstrated how Spoon can ensure legacy software continuity, guard against Java vulnerabilities, easily package and deploy software, help create sensible BYOD policies, and dramatically simplify QA testing. Kenji, our CEO, had fun with his Q&A session at the end, and we were happy to introduce so many people to Spoon’s capabilities.
After attending a few talks and enjoying an excellent dinner, we took a team outing to Penn & Teller, a Vegas classic.
Although we all loved the performance, Colin from our business development team had a special experience – near the end of the program, Penn Jillette called Colin onstage to assist in one of their final tricks! No pictures were allowed, but we have the tweet to prove it!
The next day, we met even more exciting LANDesk partners, and we were able to take some time to explore the strip.
That night, we had a company party in our loft with fellow conference attendees. After a few drinks and a lot of laughs, we hit the casinos for a fun evening of blackjack, craps, and roulette.
On Thursday, our last full day in Vegas, we gave another Spoon presentation, had a delicious team dinner, attended the Criss Angel magic show, and even played in a late-night poker tournament! Colin and Victor performed admirably, but fell just short of the prize.
Understandably, the week was a bit tiring for Victor…
Despite all of the blackjacks that one dealer hit, we had a great time in Vegas at LANDesk Interchange ’14 – can’t wait for next year!
