For the last 5 years, IE’s invited customers to sample the latest technologies and some of the best local beer and food as part of our OktoberTekfest event. It’s a great opportunity to see the latest products and solutions offered by IE and our partners, to meet the IE staff and have some fun. As part of the planning team for IE, it falls on me to determine what Collaboration technology we’re going to present to give our customers a glimpse of the future and prepare their organizations for what’s to come. This is no easy task. There are so many technologies with so much potential. This year we thought we’d take a slightly different approach with one demo. We wanted to not only showcase our partner’s tech but also what creative things our technical team can do with them.
We thought about what technology could we show at a German Oktoberfest-inspired event. An event with a fully functional beer garden, lots of beer flowing, and the smell of brats, pretzels and other great food. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could combine two of our favorite things, technology AND beer? And then it hit us, we’ll build a KegBot!
