Vision_Logo (2)

The Krewe is proud to announce that Vision Solutions  has teamed up with us to present the Sunday Meet N Greet at Microsoft TechEd 2013 in New Orleans!

We are super excited about this because, like The Krewe, Vision Solutions knows how to throw a Rockin party and have a good time. More information will be posted soon, but here is what we can tell you now:

Doors open for the event at 6:30pm on Sunday, June 3rd and run until 10:30pm. It will be held at Republic. If you’ve never been to Republic, it’s an awesome venue and close to the convention center. Food, Drinks, and live music by Papa-C  & the Slammin’ Horns are all covered. Sign-up for the event will be sometime in May. Follow @Thekrewe or join the group on Facebook for the inside scoop.

And because one event is never enough, we are working on an event on Monday night following the vendor expo. This will be a more laided back event offering more opportunities for networking and conversation. Details are still being worked out on this as we are still finalizing sponsors for the event.

Stay Tuned for more information as it becomes available…

Getting the Band Back together for TechEd

The Krewe is proud to announce that Vision Solutions will be bringing the band to TechEd again!

The new band, Double Vision, will continue the legacy of Cluster Funk, which was always a Krewe and TechEd attendee favorite.

 So far the event info is as follows:

Date/Time:  Wednesday, June 13th from 7-10:30pm

Location:  Magaritaville at Universal Citywalk

So how do you get in? Well, as a sponsor of our Meet N Greet, Vision has offered up 10o VIP slots for members of the group. If you wish to receive the registration information to RSVP for the party, send an email to requesting an invite.

Official Invite Information:

Double-Take has simply evolved into a rock-star solution for replication, migration and availability for Windows and Linux. The launch of 6.0 is making a lot of noise in a big way – so big we’re bringing back a band.

Join us at Margaritaville for the world premiere of DoubleVision, our new band featuring talent from Vision Solutions and Double-Take. The event is sure to be one of the major highlights at TechEd. Passes are limited for this not-to-be-missed event…

Also help us spread the word about Double-Take 6.0. Simply Tweet to @VSI_Doubletake about how our new best-in-class solutions meet your business continuity needs, and you’ll be eligible for the drawings at the Double-Take Evolution Experience.

Don’t miss the celebration. And don’t miss out on Double-Take 6.0! Stop by Booth #2223

Time to Pay IT Forward…#TheKrewe Style!

You may hear me reference cryptic stuff or make vague statements about “the next phase” of The Krewe. Well, this is it. Paying it Forward! That is The Krewe version 3.0 in my eyes. Parties are great, Networking is awesome, but nothing beats helping out those who are not as fortunate as we are. Now here’s your opportunity to give back to the community we will be making home for a week.

Thanks to GeekGive and Microsoft TechEd, there are a number of events you can help out at. Check out Brandy’s blog post for more information.

So how does The Krewe fit into this? Well, if you are in Orlando on Saturday before 5pm AND consider yourself part of The Krewe, I expect to see you at the serving meals event for the Coalition for the Homeless. Just register here and we’ll get more details out later. As for the remaining events, I am going to be working with Brandy to coordinate times for the group to participate in assembling care packages and painting some murals.  All information on these two opportunities will be communicated via @TheKrewe and our Facebook page.  The other event is working with Habitat for Humanity and is an all day event on Saturday.  If you get in on Friday, this might be something to consider it

Please consider carving out some time in your TechEd schedule for these events.

Thanks in Advance!

Eventbrite - TheKrewe Meet N Greet at Microsoft TechEd 2012

This is the place to be on Sunday night to kick off your week at Microsoft TechEd 2012!


Join us at Howl at the Moon for an evening of networking and fun!

For a number of years, The Krewe has gotten together the night before TechEd to meet new faces and renew old friendships. This year is no different; just in a bigger venue! This year, we have the entire place to ourselves with food and beverages for all. We will have food and open bar from 8-10pm and cash bar for the remainder of the evening thanks to our awesome sponsors!


There is no better way to meet others in the TechEd community and build bonds that will last long past the conference.


Make sure not to miss this event!
