Solaris Technical Day on the 23rd May in Vienna

Update: the registration link is live!

What is the best way to directly exchange information with your fellow engineers running UNIX platforms or applications thereupon? In our opinion it is a face-to-face chat by a conference-coffee or by an after-conference beer. To enable this kind of less formal technical information exchange we set up a technical event, the Solaris Day 2013 in Vienna

We invite customers, partners, SystemEngineers, DBAs, ApplicationEngineers, and anyone else interested in Solaris technologies to join us on the 23rd May, in Vienna in the Urania to review past, present and future Solaris technologies, discuss real-world customer usecases, learn about the ways Solaris features are utilized in different scenarios. 

What do you need to know?

I.    The event is on May 23, in Vienna, in the Urania.
II.   The presentations will be held in english, for we have invited and expect an international audience
III.  The registration link is live. Also, save the date into your calendar (do it now! 23rd May, 12:45-19:00) 
IV.  To participate in the technical Hands-on-Labs bring along your laptop with a 64-bit OS and an up to date VirtualBox installation (can be done withing minutes).
V.   This is a free event, only registration is necessary to reserve resources.
VI.   We are looking forward to seeing you
