Two weeks ago, several Tenable colleagues and I traveled to Boston to attend and speak at the SOURCE conference. The SOURCE conferences, founded by Stacy Thayer, are small in size but big on content.

SOURCE Boston was held at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The above picture was taken at the hotel looking out over Seaport Lane.
