Thank you! For making Global AI Bootcamp – Houston Edition a success!

What metric dictates the success of an event? We held our inaugural GlobalAIBootcamp – Houston Edition event on Saturday, and based on the number of smiles, hugs, and relationships built… I felt it was a huge success! Of course, it takes a huge amount of people to support an event…

On December 15 2018 we held the inaugural Global AI Bootcamp in Houston at Avanade’s Houston Digital studio office. Avanade was the only sponsor of this event, where we SOLD OUT and had over 85 registrants on this global event.  We had 60+ attendees show up, and this was in spite of it being a Saturday event in the middle of December!

Special shout out to our Guest Speakers:

Thor Schueler – Kicked off the day with awesome energy.
