Our first US event runs April 30 through May 4 in Orlando. Its deep dive technical sessions can help you grow the skills you’ve demonstrated by earning the IBM Professional Certification credential. If you’re a true blue “techie,” here are five reasons you’ll want to attend:

  1. Grow your skills via 750+ in-depth lectures, demos and labs delivered by IBM Distinguished Engineers, developers and product experts. Learn how to plan, architect, install, configure, migrate, operate and tune IBM infrastructure on IBM Z, IBM Power Systems and IBM Storage. Topics include:

This full week of sessions lets you go deep on IBM Z with hands-on training delivered by IBM Technical Training Instructors.In addition, we are partnering with Interskill Learning on a post-event learning package. Attendees of the z/OS for Rookies track can take 53 Z mainframe e-learning courses at no additional cost. The Interskill courses are available from the time you register for TechU through July 31, 2018. Best of all, you can qualify for up to six IBM Open Badges when you successfully complete these Interskill e-learning courses.
  3. Prepare to pass key exams with IBM Storage Certification Boot Camps.
    IBM Storage Certification Boot Camps can help you quickly grasp the core concepts of key IBM Storage hardware and Spectrum software products to prepare you for these Storage certification exams:
