Network Field Day
I’m at the airport and reflecting over the crazy week ahead while furiously completing work on my day job. Before I get into an amazing silver tube and travel at supersonic speeds in the least comfortable seat that money can buy, I’d like to talk about the events of the week and whats happening.
For most of Tuesday, I’ll be preparing for the OpenFlow Symposium (and generally panicking about the idea of that many smart people in the room and me being part of the moderation panel – how did that happen).
I still have times available between 0900 – 1100, and 1500-1700 to meet with vendors, marketing or PR people. If you would like to meet up, then email me: email@example.com and I’d look forward setting a time.
Network Beers – Tuesday Evening
Following in the grand tradition of Storage Beers of drinking alcohol and talking about IT infrastructure please feel free to stop by and have a drink with other Network folks. Some of the Tech Field Day bloggers (I’m not entirely sure who) will be there, and hoping to have a small group of people to talk shop and meet some new people. You don’t need an invitation, just turn up at the Doubletree and look for nerdy people near the Tech Field Day.
Tuesday – starting at 6pm until whenever you decide to go home. Location – Applied OpenFlow Symposium, Doubletree Hotel, 2050 Gateway Place, San Jose, CA 95110
Why – Because too much networking would never be enough.
OpenFlow is a itch I can’t help but scratch. So the idea to have a panel that brings the vendors together to talk about the business impacts
We will be streaming the event live from the TechField Day website.
If you have questions,
- Use Twitter: @etherealmind
- Use Google Plus – Greg Ferro Google+ – add my name to the list of people so I’ll get notified about it.
- email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have times dedicated to taking questions from the audience so tune in to hear your questions asked and answered by the panel.
You can follow the OpenFlow Symposium on twitter with #OFS11 hashtag #OFS11
