I will be back in Las Vegas for HP Discover this year. The conference runs June 4th – 7th and I am really excited to jump in and get more information about the direction HP is going, especially when it comes to networking. I went to InterOP a few weeks ago to learn more about HP Networking post the 3Com merger, but I didn’t get to spend as much time as I would have liked to learning about their new developments. Since I was in Houston learning about HP Gen8 Servers I arrived Tuesday late evening so I missed the first full day of the show.
I last attended HP Discover (then called HP Tech Forum) back in 2010 and it was an awesome event. This years show will features keynotes by IT thought leaders, the HP Discover Zone (what HP calls the expo floor), and 800+ business and technical sessions.
- Go in-depth on Nonstop, HP-UX, OpenVMS, Storage. There will be 25+ Hands-on Labs available at the conference. Labs are longer than regular breakouts, so you have time to dive into the details.
- See the complete ecosystem of HP and partner solutions for enterprise business, all in one place at the same time.
- Get 5 free certification exams worth $875.
If you haven’t already signed up for HP Discover your time is running short. It is one week from Monday! I have been given the opportunity to extend a $300 discount if you use the promotion code “BLOG“. Along with this discount, I also get entered into a contest to win a free trip to any HP event, as well as a couple of laptops. So, if you sign up, not only do you get to go to HP Discover and hang out with cool people like me, but most importantly, you will also be helping me win a trip to another HP event!
All joking aside, I hope to see you there. I will be covering the event live via twitter and posting about what i find interesting.
