I have been fortunate to be selected as a delegate for Cloud Field Day 12 next week, November 3-5, 2021. This will be the first Tech Field Day event being done with in person attendees since the beginning of the pandemic and I’m happy to say I am on my way to San Jose, CA to be in attendance. While I am definitely excited about being able to travel about this I am most excited about the exciting slate of vendors that will be presenting on all things Cloudy. Thus far the delegate panel appears to be very well attended and includes a number of friends and acquaintances such as Nico Stein and Nathan Bennett.
In the interests of full disclosure it is worth noting that Gesalt IT, the company behind Tech Field Day, is covering the costs of my expenses for this trip up to and including travel, lodging and meals while on site. That said I have had no stipulations or requests on commentary from either Gesalt IT or presenting sponsors. In the week prior to the event I was invited to be a guest on the On-Premise IT podcast discussion the premise “The Cloud Is Finally Ready for the Enterprise.”
All presentations will be able to be viewed online live at the base event link https://techfieldday.com/event/cfd12/ and if you are following along the other delegates and I will be happy to pass along questions that are sent via twitter with the #CFD12 tag. In PST times the presentations will be on this schedule:
Wednesday Nov. 3:
8:00 to 9:30 – Prosimo
10:30 to 12:30 – Juniper Networks
Thursday Nov. 4:
8:00 to 10:00 – Ondat (formerly StorageOS)
