Palm Beach IT Users Group 08 Oct 13, Windstream, West Palm Beach, Fl

Join us at our next meeting and attend Manuel Palachuk’s The 10 golden Rules of PSA. Here’s a brief description of what Manuel will be covering:
Whether you’re a one person shop or 50, you must have some guidelines of how you plan to break down the work into an organized fashion and how you will communicate with the client along the way.
You don’t have to be an MSP or use a PSA to work efficiently and be profitable but you do need a system and a method. These ten golden rules can be the seed for your own system if you have none, or you can adopt them in whole. Either way, this is your opportunity to take your service delivery to the next level. Join our guest Manuel Palachuk for this interactive conversation that starts with the unbreakable rules of the service ticket and end with communication with the client.
This meeting will be held back at Windstream Communications on 1641 Worthington Avenue, Suite 140, West Palm Beach, Florida  33409, and we’ll be meeting at our normal time of 6:30 pm. Presentation will start promptly at 7:00 pm, so please register soon so that we not only have enough seating, but enough food and drink as well.
Also in attendance will be Mr. Adam Rozenzweig of Cartridge World, who will briefly talk about his business and who will also be providing us with food and refreshments for the evening.
For everyone that will be attending, please provide a warm welcome to Ms. Jennifer Cohen-Louth, who will now be our new hostess at Windstream (don’t worry, I’m sure that Lynne will still be visiting us every once in a while).
One final item; we will start to present (and depending upon the presenter’s acceptance, will also record) future meeting presentations. Check back frequently to find out what other new and improved things will be implemented.

That was the invitation and here is the summary from our Organizer:

I want to thank everyone who attended (both physically and remotely) our meeting last night. Manny’s presentation was great and on point with what we do and how we run (or should run) our businesses.

Question for the remote attendees; how was the presentation from your end? Were you able to hear everything clearly? Please provide us with some feedback and please be brutally honest as we are trying out several products and want to use the best one based upon member feedback.

Thank you once again Manuel Palachuk for your presentation, thank you Adam from Cartridge World for your presentation and the pizza & sodas, and last but not least, thank you Jennifer for continuing to host our user group meetings at Windstream!

By the way, it was great to see Lynne Keane from that other telecom company show up last night, too!

NSU Hosts FBI Presentation on National Cyber Security Awareness

Nova Southeastern University's FBI Special Presentation on National Cyber Security
Event Details: Thursday, October 3 at 6:00 p.m. Nova
Southeastern University Carl DeSantis Building, Knight
Auditorium Hall, Room 1124 3301 College Avenue Fort

No photo essay this time.  Active FBI Agents apparently remain a bit camera shy. Regardless, a great presentation on the subject matter.  Amazingly conducted without Power Point!

NSU remains one of the area's most gracious hosts in the area for this type of event.  Light snacks were very excellent, Thank You!

Also, kudo's to :

For his continued support to the IT community in South Florida.

Did you miss it?  You still have time to make the next three events this month!  See the poster above.

Deerfield Beach Coder's Cafe at Caffeine Spaces, Boca Raton, Oct '13

Coder's Cafe - Caffeine Spaces Boca - Tuesday 10/01/2013 @ 6:30 PM - Cloud Deployment Options Today - Jess Coburn - Appliedi.Net

There’s not a one size fits all cloud solution today and likely never will be one. As you look to deploy your web application, there's more than one path to the cloud. In this presentation we'll review how you can deploy many of the Azure services yourself, with the same tools, the same technology and even the same user interface but in your datacenter, on your servers and customized to your unique business needs and we’ll go over some of the advantages and disadvantages associated with that.

Also come and check out Caffeine Spaces, a collaborative workspace in the EDC Incubator at FAU in Boca.

Ok, that was the invite announcement.  Did you miss it?  check out the Photo Essay and see what happened.
