[Live Blog] Oracle OpenWorld 2017 Monday Keynote

This will be a loosely structured combination of live commentary plus pulling in what I and others post on Twitter. This is my first Oracle OpenWorld so wanted to prioritize getting to one keynote at least. Starting out as many keynotes do with a DJ onstage - the hall is moderate sized. Definitely not small … Continue reading [Live Blog] Oracle OpenWorld 2017 Monday Keynote

[Live Blog] Microsoft Ignite 2017 – Azure Technology Keynote

Same DJ in between keynotes as before the first keynote. Everyone has wristbands underneath their chairs so can participate in the keynote in some way. Presumably Azure can make lots of LEDs blink at the same time. https://twitter.com/andriven/status/912327443146567680 Starting with Scott Guthrie, MS Executive VP (I think) - time to go deeper into MS Azure … Continue reading [Live Blog] Microsoft Ignite 2017 – Azure Technology Keynote

This ended up being a non-traditional live blog - I'm trying out tweet curation for the first part at least.

Disclosure - this is a live blog. I'll do my best for it to be coherent but I'm prioritizing rapid updates + keeping up with the most polished formatting.

Dell EMC World 2016 – Closing Thoughts

This is an overdue post from Dell EMC World (Oct 17-20) - my final one actually. Full disclosure that DellEMC paid for my flight/hotel/conference pass. Also, full disclosure that I’ve since then accepted a position with a company that competes with EMC in certain areas (blog post on that to come later this week). You … Continue reading Dell EMC World 2016 – Closing Thoughts
