Well it looks like my relaxing break from speaking and attending conferences is quickly coming to and end.  On the one hand I am excited to get back to the “conference circuit” on the other I enjoyed being able to stay home and get a ton of stuff done :) Over the next few weeks I will speaking at several events, so if you are attending any of these conferences be sure to stop by say hi and see whats new with Bluemix!

DevNexus Feb 15th-17th

This was one of my favorite conferences from last year and I excited to not only be speaking again but giving 2 sessions this year.  Links to the sessions are below.

IBM InterConnect Feb 21st -25th

IBM InterConnect has become IBM’s premier conference with topics that include Cloud, IoT, Watson, Mobile, Security, and much much more.  Last year there were 20,000+ attendees.  I really enjoyed the conference and am looking forward to attending again.  I will be giving a 15 minute lightening talk on MQTT in the dev@ track.  The dev@ track looks like it is shaping up to be a nice mini conference just for developers.  All technical topics, no sales or marketing.  If your the technical type attending Interconnect I suggest you spend some time in the dev@ tack.


O’Reilly Fluent March 8th-10th

This will be my first time attending Fluent and my first time speaking.  I am really looking forward to it.  I will again be giving a session on MQTT.
