Voting should begin any time now for sessions at BrainShare 2011 (the website says it begins today, in fact, but it looks like it’s not quite set up). The conference is scheduled for October 9-13 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and it will be the first time for customers to see what Attachmate is like in person. In fact, the BrainShare homepage advertises, “Hear the new IT vision from the visionaries themselves.”
The early registration email to SUSE customers proclaims:
SUSE will have a dedicated and significant presence at BrainShare with participation in the keynotes, and with its own demo area in the IT Central, as well as its own conference session category with special Linux and Open Source session tracks. All components of the SUSE Business Unit (including the Enterprise Linux Server related business, the SUSE Studio/Appliance part, and the openSUSE project) will be presented to BrainShare attendees.
If I were a SUSE customer, I think I’d be trying harder than usual to get my boss to spring for sending me after all the changes that have occurred this year. Attachmate will be judged by its performance at this show, and I think the future of SUSE depends on it. I know that after my discussion with Nils Braukmann, SUSE president and general manager, I had some remaining questions about the future of the operating system and future technical innovation.
What do you want to hear from SUSE? Are you planning to attend BrainShare 2011?
