What is your favorite thing in Vegas?

Whenever I go to Vegas for vacation, I am amazed with the variety of entertainment that the city offers. I guess my favorite thing in Vegas is the shows, especially the Cirque du Soleil.  If you haven’t seen one of their shows, I would highly recommend you to go. Now, if you have seen a Cirque du Soleil show, what’s your favorite?

 

The energy and performance of their shows is fantastic, the agility of the acrobats moving around within the magnificent stage and sounds effects make me think:   how much preparation do they need to get to that level of perfection! Everything is so well put together… it’s perfect!

 

The interesting thing is that we, in IT, are not too different. There is a lot of creation and preparation to deliver applications to our customers.  … especially if you strive for perfection.

 

The fact is that to ensure that the application will perform to perfection requires a lot of preparation as well as testing for quality.

 

Well, the time is rapidly approaching for HP’s largest conference ( HP Discover) and besides of the excitement of the conference in Vegas, there will be so many great news stories…

Why I’m really going to HP Discover 2012

I’m part of our product marketing team and HP Discover is certainly somewhere in the job description.   But, that’s not why I’m really going.

 

Of course it could be that I love Vegas and the excitement and energy of the whole environment, but that’s not why.

 

Or, it could be a great agenda with over 50 application focused track sessions focusing on topics such as:

-       How people are doing mobile testing

-       Testing with Virtualized Services

-       LoadRunner, Performance Center and Diagnostics

-       Manual and Automated Testing

-       What’s new in performance testing

-       Project and Portfolio Management best practices

-       Agile

-       Etc,

 

but that’s not why.

Perhaps it’s the keynote sessions to hear from customers such as Jeffery Katzenberg and Dreamworks or our CEO, Meg Whitman,

Maybe the closing celebration featuring Sheryl Crow and Don Henley?

Nope…

 

Those are all great reasons to go to HP Discover, but for me, the real reason is You.  I go to HP Discover for the opportunity to connect with you - my peers and learn about your challenges and successes.  There are few events in the world, where more dedicated and focused IT professionals gather and connect with each other.   I hope to see you at HP Discover –  Don’t forget to use the code DSCVRSW to save $300  when you register.  -> HP Discover Registration
