Interop Las Vegas kicks off in just a matter of days, and while I am excited to go experience all of the great content and meet many of our site's readers there, the thought of it actually makes my head hurt a little. There are so many good sessions and workshops, and so many excellent speakers, it's honestly hard to take it all in. When you consider that the discussion focuses on challenging technology topics, it makes going to a conference awfully hard work.
Luckily the organizers of Interop realize that attendees need to have their thinking caps on during most of the conference, so they are working extra hard to inject fun and games into activities throughout the day. The idea is to make fun an integral part of the conference, so that even if you are working and learning the entire time you're there (like I plan to), you can still enjoy yourself and have a great time.
You'll want to start out by exploring the Interop HQ at Expo Booth #2139. This serves as the home of free swag and prizes (fun!) and serves as the Interop social media command center. Social media will go live-and-in-person here, with your Tweets giving you the opportunity to win an iPad Mini, T-shirts, sunglasses, and more. You can even get cozy IRL with friends old and new in and old-fashioned photo booth.
The HQ will also feature free food -- and only fun food is allowed!
