The Tuesday night expo hall reception featured the F.I.R.S.T. Robotics Team comprised of local youth who have an affinity for technology. The mission of the program is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

The team reached the Semi-Finals with the robot they built that launches Frisbees. The kids showcased their robot on the expo floor and even let some of the attendees drive the robot which was a huge success with Vision’s functional IT crowd. In addition to showing off their robot, the kids spent the evening telling attendees about F.I.R.S.T. Robotics, and many attendees were excited to go home and tell their own children about the program.

Stephen Gillett and his family were in attendance, and presented...

The Connect team is having a busy week at Vision conference. We're sponsoring the charging stations and have had lots of great opportunities to meet our community members and introduce customers to Connect. We also had a great design session with our Trusted Advisors, who are a group of dedicated customers and partners. Here's TA Tony Sterling, working the lock at the charging station.



If you're attending the conference, please stop by one of the two charging stations, and introduce yourself - we usually recognize Connect user IDs - everyone knows ohzone, but come meet the person behind the avatar!
