Greetings from Boston where I am at the 2010 IBM System z Technical University. Yesterday was a great day with over 800 attendees at the conference. The exhibit hall was very busy last night with attendees flooding in to see IBM's new zEnterprise and all of the firms in the exhibit hall that support solutions on the platform. There are many IBM Destination z members in the exhibit hall this year, including six who have sponsored our zZingo card promotion. At this conference attendees who visit our six sponsors can earn an on-site chair massage and a chance to win a new iPad. zZingo card sponsors include: Hostbridge Technologies, 21st Century Software, Intellimagic, Mainline Information Systems, Trident Services and Vicom Infinity.
Other Destination z members at the show are PSR, Novell, Red Hat, IBM Systems Magazine, zJournal/Mainframe Executive, Cloud Compiling, Velocity Software, Interskill Learning, PKWARE, Innovation Data Processing are a few I have seen. Also I have seen members of H&W and Progress Software at this event.
If you are here in Boston, stop by the IBM Destination z booth (94) and say hello!
Until next time, yours in z,
