After an uneventful flight from LAX to O’Hare and a two-hour drive, I arrived at Notre Dame University yesterday afternoon about 4:00 PM local time. The Kurogo folks put on a nice mixer at the Morrison Inn for attendees last night from 6:00 – 9:00 PM, and I got an opportunity to meet a number of folks from around the US and Canada who are using the platform. I’m eager to see how people are using and extending it to meet their campus needs!
The facility that we’re using for the event is the Notre Dame Innovation Center, which I’ll post picture for in a future update. A very cool space, it’s really ideal for meetups, hackathons, and incubator-type activities. I wish we had one of these at CSUN! The reception desk of the center has a whole set of “that was easy” Staples-inspired buttons. If you’re wondering, yes I pressed every one of these 🙂
This conference is a number of “firsts” for me: first time at Notre Dame, first time at the Kurogo conference, and first time at a mobile-focused conference. I’ll do my best to capture what’s being presented here, along with a bit of the event’s flavor.
Watch this space!
