ASNApalooza 2014, the 15th ASNApalooza Developer Conference was held on October 20th and 21st. More than 65 attendees came from all over the US, Canada, and Spain.
The 15th ASNApalooza, ASNA's Developer Conference, was held at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk on October 20th and 21st. Despite media-driven travel paranoia 65 ASNA developers from the US, Canada, and Spain put their tray tables in their upright and locked positions and flew to San Antonio to participate in ASNApalooza 2014.
ASNA's Tim Daniels, John Nickell, Roger Pence, and Eduardo Ross provided attendees two days' worth of their best technical material. The topics covered included mobile development, modern Web development and design, deployment and testing techniques, and various other nerdy topics.
Says Carlos Valero, CEO of ASNA, "I've been a part of Palooza since the first one in 1999 and this one was one of our best ever. We had an excited, motivated group of attendees, the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk provided a great environment for us, and we had many great conversations with our customers. And, the entertainment at the traditional ASNApalooza reception was the best ever!"
While Palooza is all about learning, networking, and sharing, it also features a little fun. The entertainment at this year's ASNApalooza was the supremely talented Elvis impersonator, Forrest Forbus. When not impersonating Elvis, Forrest is also an ASNA customer at Management Controls, Inc. in Alexander City, Alabama. It was a great treat to welcome Elvis at our reception and then at the end surprise attendees with the fact that Elvis is one of their own!
Says John Hennessy, an ASNA developer at US Warranty in Pompano, Florida, "ASNApalooza 2014, once again, great! I had fun, learned new skills, and reinforced current skills. It was great seeing all my old friends and refreshing my ASNA horizons once again in San Antonio."
Forrest Forbus, er Elvis, singing to Palooza attendees about a hunk of burning RPG love!
