Sun Customer Engineering Conference 2007

Just two weeks until Sun’s major Field Technologist get together – the Customer Engineering Conference (CEC) 2007.

This is a yearly event – being held in Las Vagas this year – and virtually in Second Life.

Over 3,600 Sun Customer Engineers and around 300 Sun Partners from around the world will meet in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The event always feature keynotes from Sun executives but this year will also include Industry leaders too.

There will be a ton of things going on during the event – all around field focused, customer engineering.

Apparently it will “deliver critical training with focused technical tracks and breakout sessions”, plus there will be “a demo pavilion, and abundant networking opportunities for all participants”.

The real highlight for me will be seeing Andy Bechtolsheim:

The Value of Design: Sun’s Systems Launch

Join John Fowler and Andy Bechtolsheim on Tuesday, October 9th, at the launch of the next-generation CoolThreads servers and blade designed for virtualization. You will also hear about the latest Sun systems based on the Intel and AMD quad-core processors, and innovations in storage and software that more easily enable virtualization and web-scale computing.

And to all my friends going to the conference – see you there !
