A Jungle of Technology

A session at Boise Code Camp 2016

Saturday 19th March, 2016

3:05pm to 4:20pm (MST)

Session Level: 100

For those of us who've spent our career in a forest of cubes, take the time to hear from the "jungle of technology". Hear stories about IT environments where the flora and fauna are frequently deadly. Find out how to set up a WiFi mesh when lightning is the predominate form of electricity. How do you support a customer when the road hasn't seen 4 wheeled traffic since 1987?

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) exists to relieve human suffering and develop people’s capacity to improve their conditions. We are a Christian organization with members from many different churches around the world.

Before you head back to your beige office furniture on Monday, allow me to leave you with either a reason to be thankful for your present circumstances, or a challenge to work beyond the ordinary
