TechGate Conference 2012

If you live in the Northern Virginia / DC area – your weekends are valuable time that you probably don’t want to give up. However every so often an event pops up like a SharePoint Saturday or MADExpo that makes you turn your head and make plans to attend. In this case it’s the TechGate Conference in Reston taking place on 15 September.

It touts itself as the following:

Sessions in cloud computing, software development, system management and virtualization. Featuring top industry speakers from Amazon.com, Microsoft, Telerik, AIS and others. Many MVPs. Mingle with your peers at the Expo Hall with fun activities, prizes to win, food and beverages.

So if you’ve got the time and interested in cloud computing and virtualization, why not go ahead and register, cost is negligible since parking is free though mileage and wear and tear on your car aren’t covered by the sponsors of the event but nearly everything else is 🙂

AIIM Boot Camp – Washington DC

Looks like AIIM is going to have a free “Basic Training” for today’s information professionals on 16 October 2012 at the Capital Hilton in DC.

Looks like the plan is to provide 5 steps to success using social tech and how to leverage big data. All in all, should be an interesting morning.
