IBM Systems technical events are THE place to build your skills, gain technology insights and grow your professional network. Feedback from last year’s events revealed a strong desire for local training. So in 2016, IBM has launched IBMTechU Comes to You, a variety of three-day mini-conferences across the US where you can experience in-depth training on IBM z Systems, IBM Power Systems and IBM Storage.
Here are five reasons you’ll want to attend an IBM Systems Technical University:
- IBM Technical University Comes to You events are local and run for just three days, which may save you airfare and hotel costs. Choose from events in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago or San Francisco. Plus, since they are short events, you can have less time away from your office. There are multiple discounts for early registration, group discounts and more!
Experience high quality, technical training led by IBM developers and product experts. IBM Technical Universities offer nearly 200 focused, skill-building sessions on key IBM Systems technologies. Many include hands-on labs. Here's a sample of popular session topics:

- Networking! Expand your professional network in a small, welcoming setting.

Many IBM Technical Universities feature panel discussions where where you can learn from others' challenges and successes and share your own.
- Explore new products from IBM and IBM business partners in the Solution Center. Vendors will be on hand to showcase their latest offerings. The Solution Center is your go-to destination for browsing the latest technologies while getting your questions answered by experts.
- Earn your IBM Professional Certification via onsite certification testing. You can validate your expertise when you gain the valuable credential of an IBM Certified Professional. Plus, you pay only USD $100 per exam -- a 50 percent discount from what you'd pay at a testing center.
