Share this post:

For the very first time, IBM Think is headed to the Golden City – San Francisco, California. Think is a conference designed to bring attendees together to sharpen skills, grow professional networks, engage with industry experts and have some fun! You’ll find IBM Systems at the Cloud & Infrastructure campus. There, attendees will have an immersive experience showcasing client stories, interactive think tanks, theater sessions and demos of IBM technologies including quantum computing. Whether you’re attending Think in person or following the action from afar, there are several ways to stay in touch with what’s happening through the web and social media.

Linus Tech Tips in real life

YouTube personality and technology aficionado Linus Sebastian will be joining us at Think 2019. While in San Francisco, Linus will be hands-on with the latest tech, chatting with industry experts and hosting a meetup on Thursday, February 14th with Think attendees. The meetup will be held Thursday afternoon in the Cloud & Infrastructure Campus Think Tank I from 1:30-2:10PM PST. Be sure to follow Linus Tech Tips on Twitter to catch the latest from him at Think.

Industry leaders on the ground

Occasionally IBM Systems invites industry social influencers to attend our events and share their unique points of view. Registration and accommodations are covered by IBM Systems for these “Social VIPs”; however, the content and opinions expressed come directly from the influencers and don’t necessarily reflect the views of IBM.

Jump in the conversation and engage today with #think2019 and #IBMpartner.
