"Coming here has really opened my eyes to the community; the engagement from the actual developers of IBM, the other companies who operate on the i… it’s really been enlightening to see the community - how engaged, how involved, how nice everyone is. It’s pretty awesome."

- Ryan Nichols, first time attendee at POWERUp 2022

"My favorite thing is the people, the ability to get together with friends, make new friends, and share the experience that you’ve had over the course of time that’s passed since the last POWERUp, and understand what’s new. Understand what’s new with them, what’s new with what they’re doing, what’s new with the platform and … it’s far and away the most efficient way to understand what’s going on."

- Randy Dufault, COMMON Member

"I really enjoy the whole concept of COMMON. I like that people from across the country meet together and you’re able to meet other people who are doing exactly what you’re doing. It’s like investing in myself."

- Shelly Petty, N2i Committee Member
