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.
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.
