Don’t panic, it’s not quite October yet, there’s still plenty of time. However, be sure to save the date today for NetApp Insight 2019 in Las Vegas. As usual, this is one event you’re not going to want to miss. Mark your calendar now: October 28 – 30, 2019 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

 

Whether you’re a NetApp diehard like me, or just looking to get quality technical content about what’s new and exciting in our industry, NetApp Insight is the place to be. Each year, NetApp crams the schedule full of a variety of technical sessions that give you the inside track on all the latest and greatest innovations from NetApp. This year’s conference is sure to be packed to the gills with updates on NetApp’s developments in cloud-connected flash, cloud data services, and hybrid cloud infrastructure.

 

You’ll get the chance to hear directly from NetApp’s leadership and technical experts, and they’re always available after their sessions to chat. Come prepared with your toughest questions and bring a notebook. You can even take many of NetApp’s products for a test drive with their Hands-On Labs.

 

NetApp Insight is also the best opportunity you have all year to #GetCertified or to re-up on your existing certifications. The technical training and exams offered at NetApp Insight are second to none, and it’s all included as part of your conference pass. You’re going to want to block some time on your calendar to check out what NetApp University has in store.

 

But, as I’ve always said, the number one reason why I attend NetApp Insight every year is the networking. NetApp Insight is the place to be if you’re looking to build your network, establish new contacts in the industry, or just to catch up with old friends. I am always excited to meet up with the other members of the NetApp A-Team and NetApp United. Since we’re globally distributed, we don’t get many chances to meet in person; it’s a great opportunity that I look forward to each year.

 

Mark your calendars today, and be on the lookout as registration opens soon. You won’t want to miss this.
