Sunday is when the keynotes are taking place. This is a switch from last year and I think a good decision. The reasoning behind it is to allow for more session times. We need to get the rest of our room setup and configured. One of our sessions will require subnetting to work correctly so we need to physcially seperate the computers by using the switches. Not a great amount of work but hey, get it done today rather than Thursday night or Friday morning.
The venue is a pretty cool place. Of course the arrangement this year is designed to reduce the amount of walking you have to do by placing everything in color coded, categorized locations. This is a pretty cool idea I think. The breakout sessions and other conference sessions are located in various locations througout the conference center so there will still be some walking required. Although not as large as the Orange Country Conference Center in Orlando, the BCEC is still a large place.
A few more preparations and verifications for the room and then some more prep time tonight and we should be ready for kickoff tomorrow. The time zone change is still playing a little on the body just yet as well so it would be nice to get caught up on some more rest before tomorrow. Once we kick off in high gear, there won't be any downshifting until Friday. :-)
See you at the BCEC!
