I was so happy to be invited as an influencer to HPE Discover this year. This is a wrap up of my experiences from the event so far.
One of things I always spend a lot of time on is the community. This is something I’m very passionate about being a VMUG Leader in Denmark.
The Tech community is a tribe and a place to form true relationships. Being the first HPE Discover for me, there is a lot of new faces but also some familiar ones.
I finally got to meet the people behind vBrownbag. Jeffrey and Alistair. I’ve known them from Twitter and VMworld since forever but haven’t had a chance to sit down and talk with them. They are handling the live streaming of HPECoffeeTalk and works as a moderator for the Q&As. On the first night I had a great conversation with Alistair about vBrownbag and communities in general. I would love vBrownbag to visit VMUG Denmark I just need a way to sponsor their visit (Any ideas?)
In a week I will be in Madrid for HPE Discover. I’m so thankful for being invited to the HPE Influencer program 2017 and getting unique opportunities to hear the latest news and meeting with HPE executives and experts.
Via my company Textrovert I get insights in lots of different technologies. I really love this part of my job. 2 years ago I was a system administrator and I see so many exciting new tools I would have loved working with. One of my projects have been working with Aruba. And I’m looking forward to learning more about Clearpass, Beacons and Aruba Central when I get to HPE Discover.
Last week I was at VeeamON in New Orleans with the Veeam Vanguard program. So much content and a great community feeling.
I was very lucky to catch up with Calvin Zito, HPE Storage Evangelist and he agreed on doing two interviews. The first one is a summary of the news focused on Nimble Storage and HPE. You can read more and watch the interview here on HPE storage blog.
HPE announcements May 24th
I’ve been looking very much forward to showing you the second interview. Calvin Zito gave me a chance to hear all the announcements ahead of time and be able to share with you just as they announce. HPE Discover is in a couple of weeks and typically all announcements will be revealed at the event. This time so much other news will happening there and HPE storage team announce their news today. You will hear news on more performance, integration HPE/Nimble, 3PAR and MSA.
I’m still new to video interviews so bare with me – practice makes perfect!
