About this guide
On behalf of the Seattle Area System Administrators Guild, the League of Professional System Administrators and all of our sponsors, welcome to casitconf’13!
This is the third year for casitconf and we’re very glad you’re here to join us. No matter how wonderful the technical and tutorial sessions are they just lack that certain something that makes them worthwhile without you, the attendee, being here to participate. No matter if you’re here for just one half-day class or taking the full two days of tutorials and technical sessions we are certain you’ll get something out of the conference.
We want to make sure that you take advantage of the really useful opportunities presented by a regional conference: Talking with your fellow attendees. Take advantage of the breaks, lunch, and the Friday evening reception to get to know others here. This kind of networking is amazingly helpful whether it’s to discuss workplace issues, solve technical problems, or just connect better with your peers. We refer to this as the “hallway track” and for many of us it’s one of the most important parts of conference attendance.
We hope this year’s conference provides you with skills, knowledge, and connections that serve you well. We’ll see you at next year’s conference.
Also, please take a moment to read the conference Anti-Harassment Policy.
