    So much useful information. So many great connections. As usual, hard to choose which sessions. So many great options. Next time: create more ways to access the schedule. Wifi didn't work for everyone, and we had a lot of blind people who needed to check the schedule throughout the day.

      My phone is Android. Samsung Galaxy S III. If I am around, I'd also be willing to help with formatting and testing on various devices. By the way, many of us never succeeded in connecting to the wifi. When I got to the step of submitting the password reset, it kept failing.

    Thank you to John, Sarah, Char and Kathy for the wonderful event! It was a pleasure to present and to meet some of the best people gracing Boston. I intend to come back this way soon and spend time with all of you. I wish I could have stayed longer. Thank you again!

    For those interested, I've got a $25 Lyft credit, should you wish to use Lyft to get to or leave IBM tomorrow. www.lyft.com/invited/jennison1 If the link doesn't work, download the Lyft app and then under Payment enter jennison1 as the promo code.

    • Jennison A.

      An update, the promo codes only work if this will be your first time using Lyft. Even if you've downloaded the app but never requested a ride before, you can still use the code by entering it manually as described above. See you tomorrow!

    Will we need to present govt issued ID to enter the IBM facility (as per previous years at the NERD Center)?

    • CharJTF

      Nope :-) I'll send them a registration form with everyone's name and email address on it, and you'll be marked as "present" when you arrive.

      Note that if I haven't yet received your email address, you will have to provide it that day.

      Hi - I will be attending Sat. the 10th.

      1 · May 5, 2014

  • CharJTF

    I need everyone's email address for registration at IBM. (The email will only be shared with IBM, and they will not use it to contact you.) You can email me directly at char at jtfassociates dot com.

    IBM will use the email address to provide wifi accounts to all who register.

    Thank you!

    (Note: Meetup hides your email address, which is why I have to ask.)
