If you’re looking for Cisco in the cloud next week, you’ll have your choice of events. The source of all of this cloud knowledge, Las Vegas. Who knew that was where the cloud started?
First up, Cisco Data Center Cloud team can be found at EMC World, Booth 401, at The Venetian/Palazzo, May 6-9.
For all of the latest information on Cisco’s presence, from theater presentations to demos to speaking sessions, visit www.cisco.com/go/emcworld
We will be shooting the first half of Season 3 of Engineers Unplugged in front of a live audience! Surrounded by whiteboards and as a part of the EMC Elect Space of EMC Square, the social hub, we’re pretty excited about the line up of guests and topics. Want to learn more? Ping me @CommsNinja or visit EngineersUnplugged.com.
There will be unicorns.
But wait, there’s more! Just down the strip, at Mandalay Bay, May 6-10, you’ll find Cisco at Interop. For all of the details on the keynote, speaking sessions, and Booth 1327, visit: www.cisco.com/go/interoplv
If that’s not enough Vegas cloud for one week, Cisco’s Rodrigo Flores will be speaking at the Cloud 2020 Summit, and we’ll be providing coverage.
That’s what’s happening during the day, but what about the community? Where can you meet with your peers? Beyond the numerous official parties, and there are many, here’s where you can meet up with @CiscoDC peers.
- Monday, May 6, 9:30-11:30 pm: Join Matthew Brender (EMC), John Troyer (VMware), and Amy Lewis (that’s me, from Cisco, if that wasn’t readily apparent) for an informal non-sponsored Tweetup (BYOWallet). We podcast as The Geek Whisperers, a show about all things Social Media in Enterprise IT. Social is a part of all of our careers these days, and we’d love to hear what it means to you. Come out and say hi.
- Tuesday, May 7, 11 pm -- 1 am: It’s Vegas, baby! After the official parties end, it’s time for Waffle Club. The first rule of Waffle Club, don’t talk about Waffle Club. Space is limited, and spots are going quick.
- Wednesday, May 8, 10 pm until: Tech Field Day’s Buzzword Bingo Bash! What could be more fun that coming out to apply all the terms you’ve used and abused during the week. This is a crossover event in a neutral location, easy to get to from EMC World or Interop.
So safe travels to all who are coming. We look forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new. Please stop by the booths and say hi, or hunt one of us down by following the Twitter stream.
For everyone watching at home, pop some popcorn, and get ready for the ride. We’ll do all we can to bring the action to you. Send questions, suggestions, and feedback: here on the blog or to @CiscoDC or @CommsNinja. We’re listening!
