Jamie: How did you get initially get involved in Tech Field Day events?
Jennifer: I initially got involved in Tech Field Day because Greg Ferro of Packet Pushers recommended me as a potential delegate.

Jamie: What’s your favorite memory from the early Tech Field Days?
Jennifer: My favorite memory is when Daniel Cybulskie was describing the town he lived in when we were doing the "Hometown Gift Exchange" and he said they had polar bear alarms and we asked what the heck does a polar bear sound like? RARRRRRRRRWR? and a meme was born.

Jamie: What’s the best part about how Tech Field Day events have evolved over time?
Jennifer: The best part about how Tech Field Day events have evolved is how it has it now has Cloud and Security Field Days, and Wireless Field Day has evolved into Mobility Field Day.

Jamie: Do you miss anything about the “old school” Tech Field Day events?
Jennifer: I miss the old gang. Quite a few of us have taken jobs with vendors and as such, can no longer be delegates.

Jamie: How have vendors’ approach to Tech Field Day events changed over time?
Jennifer: I think the vendors’ approach to Tech Field Day events has changed to now being a platform where some companies do their public launch and come out of stealth mode with the live streaming audience that tunes into Tech Field Day events.

Jamie: Why do you continue to participate in Tech Field Day events?
Jennifer: I participate because of the wonderful people I've met through previous Tech Field Day events. The people who are chosen as a delegates are of a high caliber because we are all voted on and vetted for our contribution as well as our ability to get along with others.
