European System z Technical Conference Begins

(Originally posted 2007-04-16.)

The agenda this time is chock full of great sessions. I’ve “marked my card” for every single session.

Bob Hoey – marketing guy though he is – is giving a keynote speech that fills one with a lot of hope for the mainframe. (Bob, if you know nothing else about him, participated in the infamous “IBM Mainframe Marketing” videos that appeared on You-Tube a few months ago.)

So I’m really looking forward to this week, knowing I’ll meet a bunch of great customers, developers, colleagues in the field, business partners and vendors. In fact I already did. 🙂 And you’ll be relieved to note I read all of my 3 presentations in the past few days, including 2 of them on the plane over.

Will be Twittering through the week and maybe will blog more on the conference. Anyone reading this also here?

And it’s warm and sunny here in the München Hilton, right by the Englischer Garten. 🙂 Wish you were here.
