Last year I skipped Uptime Symposium given I didn't qualify for a media pass. So, I went to the hotel bar and met 99% of the people I would want to meet and was there for 12 hours straight. This year I am in the bay area during uptime, but didn't have the time I had last year.
Uptime just announced there are free exhibit passes, so I thought I could see if there was anything interesting.
LAST CHANCE FOR A FREE PASS TO THE DATA CENTER PROFESSIONAL INDUSTRY EVENT OF THE YEAR!
Register for a FREE EXPO PASS!
But, I looked at the times when the expo was open, and I am busy during all those times.
Exposition Hall will be available to you during these hours:
- Mon 5-7pm
- Tues 12-2:30pm, 5:30-7:30pm
- Wed 12:30-3pm
So, I'll be passing on Uptime's free offer for the exposition. The good thing is I'll be able to talk to some friends who are at the show and hear if they found anything interesting.
One guy I recently met is presenting and he is a newbie to Uptime, I'll be curious what he has to say about the conference and his observations. Sometimes it is good to get a new set of eyes to look at what is going on.
