Spiceworld 2008- fun times in Austin

3 December, 2008 (17:24) | Mindless Blather

I haven’t posted anything in a while. Too dang busy with nerding. I took the little lady down to Austin to visit the people at Spiceworld 2008. I’ve seen a lot of potential in what they are doing so I decided to throw down the money to fly over and offer some input in person. I think after 3.5 the stability and feature list is going to make Spiceworks a killer little app. I love it for helpdesk. Still don’t use the inventory much but I do use alerts for the computers it does see.

I was very happy to see that most of the attendees had the same problems I had. It was really interesting to see the communication gap between Spiceworks staff (programmers) and us (admins.) Their main argument for not having a client in one of the presentations – they didn’t want us to have to install a program and then keep it updated. I had a really great time telling the CIO of Spiceworks- My job is to install programs and keep them updated.
