Just got back from our 5th annual Klocwork Customer Advisory Board, graciously hosted in hot and sunny Phoenix, Arizona by one of our top customers. These events are now running like, umm, clockwork, as we have come up with a winning recipe that mixes a nice combination of Klocwork delivered material and customer delivered material over the course of 2 days. We had a great mix of ‘seasoned veterans’ and new members to this year’s CAB which worked out extremely well. We decided to add a keynote speaker to kick our meetings off, which by all accounts was very well received. I think that will now be a permanent part of our meetings going forward.
While we were inside a meeting room for the better part of 2 days, we did have some time to experience the great outdoors in Phoenix. The afterhours ‘event’ this year was riding around the Tonto National Forest…at night, without headlights…in Hummers. Not your garden-variety Hummers either, but bad-ass Hummers that seem unstoppable. Throw in some night-vision goggles, scorpions, cacti, and tarantulas and you’ve got yourself one heck of an outing. If you’re ever in the Phoenix area, you have to check out Desert Storm Hummer Tours.
Every year I come back from CAB wondering how we will top the last one, and it is no different this year. This CAB has set the bar very high, but I’m sure we will find a way to exceed it.
