ReFresh IT is three! It’s weird. Last year’s post talked about all of our exciting accomplishments and changes. This year has been so incredible and crazy all at once. For the record, Burt is still working on his post from year one.
We haven’t done much traveling this year. In January, we returned to CES in Las Vegas so we can stay up-to-date on the latest and greatest tech advancements. We returned to the “Caring for the Caregiver Hack” in Richmond, VA in March. It’s, by far, one of my most favorite events. The students there really get a sense of the impact they can have by working in technology. It’s fun to see their transformation in such a short period of time. I’ve continued to work with the CodeDay AZ group, which is a fantastic event that introduces kids of all coding abilities to programming. Head’s up! The next event is scheduled Nov. 12-13.
We made a big step this year by moving into a new office space in Mesa, AZ. It gives us a lot more room to work on things, hold meetings and have an overall sense of belonging. Although it was scary and happened faster than I thought it would, I have to say that it’s been worth it.
Our goals remain the same in that we want to provide a different type of IT support to our clients and also provide the best support we possibly can and in an efficient manner. We strive daily to become better technologists and we do this by forming partnerships with great vendors and occasionally attend conferences. For example, AZ StRUT made a generous donation of 100 Chromebooks to our charter school client this year. It’s a great organization and we’re happy to be involved with them.
Spoiler alert: we’ll be making some big changes after the first of the year so we can expand the level of support to our clients. We’ll post more about that soon, I’m sure.
As always, I can’t thank all of you enough for your continued support. It means the world to us to have such a genuine client base that understands where we’re at and where we’re going. And, not to mention, thanks to our family and friends for the tremendous level of support they provide. We couldn’t do it without you!
Until next year!
