Storage Field Day 7 – Day 0

Disclaimer: I recently attended Storage Field Day 7.  My flights, accommodation and other expenses were paid for by Tech Field Day. There is no requirement for me to blog about any of the content presented and I am not compensated in any way for my time at the event.  Some materials presented were discussed under NDA and don’t form part of my blog posts, but could influence future discussions.

This is a quick post to let you know about my first day at Storage Field Day 7. I don’t want to make it a travel blog by any means, but I thought a few touristy snaps from a grainy smartphone were in order.

Here’s a shot of the wing. Of a plane. I took it from BNE to SYD.


They don’t give you a lot of room on United in cattle class. But it’s more about the destination than the journey, and somebody else paid for my ticket.


Still, I got to travel through time, leaving BNE at 10:00 on Saturday 7th and arriving at SFO at 09:15 on Saturday 7th. I literally never get tired of that joke. So I got to spend some time with a friend in the Bay Area prior to catching up with my SFD7 comrades. We did a bunch of stuff, including checking out the Chinese New Year celebrations in SF on Saturday night.


Tuesday evening we all got together and headed to Dasaprakash for some “Fine South Indian Cuisine”. It was different to the Indian fare I normally have in Australia, and made for a nice change.

Anyway, enough with the holiday snaps. I just wanted to thank Stephen and Claire for having me back, making sure everything is running according to plan and for just being really very decent people. Look out for some posts related to the Tech Field Day sessions in the next few weeks. And if you’re in a useful timezone, check out the live streams from the event here.
