Kscope is a whirlwind adventure. I have been very lucky to be able to attend Kscope 3 years in a row.

Here is a recap of my week!

Welcome Reception

I was a bit late coming in on Sunday and sadly missed the informative Sunday Symposium. However, I did arrive in time to attend the fun Welcome Reception where we were encouraged to dress as our favorite character.

On Wednesday, I was invited to be on a panel. We had a fantastic conversation with great audience participation.

I was honored to join a fantastic group of people for dinner. There I was awarded Oracle Ace Associate, along side many other very deserving individuals.

Catching up with Friends

I’ve made some wonder friends at Kscope over the last few years. Several of them were here again this year and it is always a great pleasure to see everyone again!

Representing US-Analytics

This year I was able to help out in our Vendor Booth which was a blast. I enjoyed being able to talk shop with people as they stopped by during breaks. We had the best shirts at the conference as well!

Special Event

The special event this year was fantastic. Driving racing go-karts, daring the heights on the rope course, and of course rocking the bright colors!
