September has now become a series of IT industry events. From VMware VMworld to SolarWinds THWACKcamp to Oracle OpenWorld to Microsoft Ignite, it seems like an endless procession of speaking sessions, in booth demo presentations and conversations with IT professionals in those communities.  That last aspect that is my favorite aspect of industry events. The work we do needs to have meaning and the people interaction is my fuel for that meaningful fire. Technologies, people, and processes will always change. Similarly, the desire to learn, evolve and move forward remains the constant for successful integration into any new paradigm. Be constant in your evolution.

 

Here's a brief recap of occurrences at recent events that I had the great privilege of attending and participating in:

Let me know if you'll be at any of these events, always happy to connect with THWACK community members and converse the IT day away.
