Drop box for Hurricane Victims

What if we have a donation box at Spiceworld for people to drop shirts into to go to salvation army?

Could Spice deliver it to Salvation Army or Red Cross for hurricane relief?

Meetup with Healthcare and Banking IT Pros?

This seems to be quite an interesting year for SpiceWorld.  I've been seeing a lot of posts in the last few weeks of coordinating various meet ups.  This got me thinking... maybe IT pros who deal with regulation would like to meet up and chat for a while?  We can talk about what projects we're working on, worries and concerns we have, what we see from auditors, etc.  Anyone interested?

Suggestions for networking with Mgrs, Directors?

Let me start by saying that all the interactions I've had at previous Spiceworld's with folks from all walks of IT life have been meaningful to me and appreciated, this year however I'd like to also focus on potentially chatting with folks in similar manager levels as myself. The thought being the ability to conversate/network/establish permanent lines of communications with other IT Managers/Directors who have to make similar decisions to my would be helpful. Another resources if you will to bounce ideas off of, as well as offer input when they want it.

Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on that.

Code to Automate file upload and download

Hello Everyone,

I am a newbie to this site and coding, I currently work for testing. I am involved in testing a web application which involves uploading a XML file to the website and download feedback file for that upload. I would like to automate this process because its repetitive when it comes to regression. I have no idea where to start, I have Visual studio in my system. Now I have a goal to accomplish. Could anyone direct me where to start and the best way to do it? Thanks in advance for your support.

Interested in a DnD/tabletop get-together?

I'm creating a separate topic for this as I plan to do two separate get-togethers - one for general board/card games (linky here, go subscribe to the thread for updates!) and one for some tabletop gaming since a bunch of people noted their interest in DnD.

I'd be happy to run a session in v3.5 as that's what I've been playing for the past 10 years. If someone else would wanna volunteer to run something in 5e, I'd be happy to hand over DM responsibilities. We could also run concurrent games of different versions, or different games (DnD, Pathfinder, WoD, etc.).


If you'd be interested, vote below for when you'd be free to meet up and I'll try to make it happen. Subscribe to this thread for updates. For the poll options, "daytime" would be late morning or early afternoon.

How dependable are the buses in Austin?

So, after all this time, I'm finally getting to go to Spiceworld. I can't depend on work to pay for it. So, it all came out of my pocket (with the exception of that 40% off I won a few months back, thanks again for that by the way).

As a result of having to cut some financial corners, I've found myself staying at a hotel a little ways out. Thankfully, it looks as if I can still bus it to the convention center.

My question, how dependable are the buses there in Austin? Will I be good to go ahead with using Google Maps to look into the future to try to plan out my timing, or would that just be a waste of time?

Is a Spiceworks tour organized yet?

I'm getting in noon on Monday, so I'd really like to go for once. This is my 4th Spiceworld and I need to check that off my bucket list. Already sad I'm missing the Salt Lick.

Meetup at Buffalo Billiards Wednesday night?

I've noticed that things seem to settle down quite a bit once SpiceWorld is over. Most people are partied out and ready to wind down. Last year, a group of us met up at Buffalo Billiards and had a pretty chill night shooting pool, shuffle board and playing some pinball. It ended up being one of my favorite nights out in Austin, it wasn't a packed bar and I wasn't trying to stress test my liver.

So I'd like to give everyone an open invitation to meetup at Buffalo Billiards around for one last (chill) night out in Austin before you catch your flight out the next day. I think SpiceWorld Festivities end at 6 on Wednesday, so I say meetup around 8ish.

If I remember correctly, Buffalo Billiards table games are pay by the hour, but not expensive. They have pool, shuffle board, darts, foosball, and a bunch of AWESOME pinball machines! 201 E 6th...

First Time With SpiceWorld!

I'm really excited to meet all of you rather soon! I believe I will be one of the greeters on the second and third mornings of SpiceWorld, so prepare for some high fives.

It might be my first time working SpiceWorld, but I am no stranger to conventions. Here are a few tips to help you during your adventure (if this is your first time attending a conference).

  • Wear comfortable shoes. You may be sitting down for a few hours at a time for panels, but there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance. You want to be comfortable.
  • Hand sanitizer is your best friend. To be completely honest, sometimes people will forego the handshake due to fear of getting sick, so I have adapted to casually greeting people the following ways:
    • Handshake
    • Fist Bump
    • Touching Elbows (not even kidding with that)
    • Bear Hug

  • Keep yourself hydrated and have snacks with you....

Anyone interested in a game get-together?

Since I'm driving as usual, I was considering tossing my box of games into the trunk. I wanted to see if there would be any interest in a get-together at some point during the week to hang out and play some games. I wanna see if there's any interest first of all, and if so what people would suggest as a good space we could use. And if we have enough interest in I wanted to see if any GGs might be interested in sponsoring and slapping their name on the meetup.

Games I'd be bringing:

  • Cards Against Humanity (every single pack that's been released)
  • What Do You Meme?
  • Pretending to Adult
  • Dirty Minds
  • Munchkin and Munchkin Cthulhu
  • Superfight
  • Joking Hazard
  • Secret Hitler
  • Encore
  • Imaginiff
  • The Worst Game Ever
  • Camera Roll
  • Liar's Dice
  • Fluxx

Where is everyone coming from

With SpiceWorld around the corner, a thought popped into my head: Just where is everyone coming from for the convention? I'm flying in from the northeast (NY in particular) but I wonder what region is going to have the strongest showing?
