Clearwater Analytics Developer’s Conference 2018

On Friday, October 19, 2018 I had an incredible opportunity to attend Clearwater Analytics’ Developer’s Conference (DevCon). They allowed their employees to invite a friend and thankfully, I have a great friend who works there who invited me as his guest.

Keynote

The keynote speech was titled “Idaho Technology – Past, Present and Future.” It was a fantastic look at the big key players of technology in Idaho’s Treasure Valley. Simplot, Hewlett Packard (HP), Micron, T-Sheets, Metageek, Cradlepoint, and of course Clearwater were just a few of the companies I remember getting a mention. Coming from a company that was spun out from Hewlett Packard (I currently work for Perspecta), it was great to see our heritage on display. However, I couldn’t help but think: “How are we going to get Perspecta on the radar like HP is?”

I thought I would take a moment to write about a few of the seminars that I attended and what I took away from them.

Day 6 of Our 2018 Bend & Lincoln City, Oregon Vacation

Day 4 of Our 2018 Bend & Lincoln City, Oregon Vacation

Don’t go looking for Day 3 of our trip. We were on the road from Bend to Lincoln City, Oregon. I would have taken some photos when we walked down to the beach after checking into our hotel, but after I got to the beach, I realized that I failed to put the SD card back into my camera. D’oh! Sadly, not the first time that has happened to me!

I do have some dashcam videos from Bend to Lincoln City and maybe someday I’ll go through them and post a couple. Ok. Let’s be honest. Probably not!

Day 4, we made a drive up to Tillamook, Oregon. With the main intention of visiting the Tillamook Creamery. Also known as Heaven on Earth! We love cheese!
