For all you first timers, don't haul your laptop around with you, carry your sunglasses everywhere you go, and keep your BlackBerry fully charged.

Same here BB, left the WY Police when they were being forced to go down the WinMo route (have since backtracked and stayed with Berrys as they saw the light), if anyone gets the chance to go to WES I would recommend it as it a blast (big up to the 2007 Crew) as it is well worth the investment!

I'm going on WES too. This is my first visit on such this conference. Maybe I took my wife with me. I live she in hotel and let spend a time how she would like.

Default What to expect at WES

From some of the post here it sounds like there's more to the event than what goes on during the day.

I'm heading out there from the UK for my first WES and wondered if anyone can give me some tips about what goes on 'after hours' and how to get the most from it.

What's all the talk about Blue Man Group, Kiss etc?

Thanks

Mate you will have a ball, trust me! It's the same as similar confs in that all day you sit around and get told how to do stuff you already know in a better way or how to do some stuff you didn't know about. Then at night you go out and go a bit mad but the diff with this place is that you have the theme parks 15 mins away, very cool . There is generally at least one organised event by a vendor etc but even when there isn't, there is always something going on to keep you busy! doesn't look like I will be going but I am sure one of these lucky buggers will hook up with you.

Also speak to your major network and see what they have got going on (unless you are with Voda, they are a bit clueless about WES). So jealous mate.

There was talk about some of us getting together to go see Blue Man Group on the Sunday before WES or the Friday afterwards. Not happening now.

There was a rumor that KISS was to be the WES Party entertainment. Nothing else confirmed though.

There are 3 major theme parks within minutes of the conference.
Walt Disney World
Universal Studios
SeaWorld

Take your pick and have some fun!

Unhappy

I am officially NOT going....

We had one of our very best server admins put his 2 weeks in on Monday and that means we have to pick up the slack. Which means I will be doing Citrix training instead. I suppose this is a good thing since it means more opportunities, but I was looking forward to seeing you guys again.

But hey, at least I will be in Orlando tomorrow for my honeymoon .

I'll be there with 2 people from my company. Should be a blast as always.

Also, I feel like I should be fighting with stuwhite. Or at least our avatars should be.

haha I saw your avatar and smiled but tbh it wouldn't be a fight. The puny son of Jor-el is nothing against the might of General Zod, sorry dude .

I wont' be going this year. I *may* have been able to swing it if the Canadian dollar was still at par, but sine it's 20% lower now, and the economy has tanked, it's a no go.

Which is really too bad, looking at 5.0 would have been nice.

Oh well, will aim for 2010

Sorry, but I am going to have to disagree there.



Plus, come on, Zod is the bad guy. The bad guy never beats Superman.

Oh please. Your puny attempts at Google image searching just remind me how easy it will be for Zod to rule this infantile race.

But yeah, it's a shame Zod has to lose, far stronger character than Superman. But we digress......

Well, John Mayer's summer tour was sponsored by RIM last summer and he was the entertainment at WES. This summer they are sponsoring U2...

I like starting rumors.
