Ignite 2017 is over and we left Vancouver with great memories, new connections and the promise of continuing conversations on Live!   Our theme this year: #GetAnswers and how Live Community can help (future) users get the information/answers they need to be successful with Palo Alto Networks.  The power of community was visible from Monday 6pm when the exhibit hall opened up to Thursday 1:30pm when it closed.  Until the last minute, attendees came to the booth to ask more questions, help provide an answer to a question or just chat with our experts and their peers.   The team LIve Community was present in a big way at Ignite.  For those of you who came by the booth, we hope you got to meet with at least one but hopefully all of our Sr Solutions Engineers: Tom Piens a.k.a. @reaper, Kim Wens a.k.a. @kiwi and Joe Delio a.k.a. @jdelio.  And Jeff Browning, Dir. of Communities a.k.a. @RetiredOnMars and Christine Arnould, your Sr Community Manager a.k.a. @carnould were also on deck to talk community!   The booth - questions answered! And the goodies... More than 165 questions were asked on the booth during Ignite, and about 145 were answered!  And many conversations sparked out from our Q&A board as users were meeting live! Goodies  were ready to be handed out!   To get a feel for what Live Community is and our booth at Ignite: WATCH our Sizzle Reel from Ignite!   LiveLounge @ Ignite Live Community hosted its first ever LiveLounge, an exclusive gathering of Palo Alto Networks and Live Community dedicated users. 40 of us came together in a trendy penthouse in Gastown, to get to know each other and share tips and knowledge through LiveTalks.  7 users went on stage to share their insight on the migration tool, admin tips, GlobalProtect and more.     Now we are all back online, let’s continue the conversations, keep asking questions and answering those questions.  Show your skills, share your knowledge..that is the power of community.  :-)   ‘Til May 2018 in Anaheim!   @carnould
