The road to Barcelona—on my way to HP Discover

I just loved the “Road to…” movie series with Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour and Bing Crosby.  Singapore, Zanzibar, 250px-Bob_Hope,_Bing_Crosby_and_Dorothy_Lamour_in_Road_to_Bali.jpgMorocco, Utopia, Rio, Bali and Hong Kong were the destinations of these fun films from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.  I hope that my trip to Barcelona for HP Discover will not be filled with all of the antics of the film series; but I am looking forward to all of the opportunities to meet with our customers. Here are some of my planned HP Discover destinations: 


  • Vivit Worldwide in the user community lounge within the Hub in the Discover Zone.  I am planning to visit the Vivit booth to network and play foosball. I also hope to encourage current and prospective members to enter into prize drawings for authentic Barcelona football jerseys!  You can learn more about Vivit’s activities at Discover on their website.
  • The HAVEn wall in the Software Pavilion in the Discover Zone.  I want to learn more about our Big Data solution that includes Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, Enterprise Security and “n” Apps from our partners that will be showing off their HAVEn based applications.
  • The Innovation Theater with presentations from our customers, partners and HP experts.  I want to learn about how NASCAR and Dreamworks are leveraging Big Data technology, or how to steal 60 million dollars in 60 seconds and the future according to HP Labs.
  • The Blogger Lounge in Hall five where industry top bloggers will be creating posts and video interviews during the event.  I am looking forward to participating in the live Mobile Apps Development video event from the Blogger Lounge on December 11. 

While Dorothy, Bob and Bing explored exotic locals, my road adventure will take me to the Fira Gran Via, the Sagrada FamÍlia, the Gaudi House and the Gothic Quarter.  These looks like an amazing sites in one of Europe’s top destinations.170px-Barcelona_Iglesia_Sagrada_Familia.jpg
