In what can only be considered excellent news, I’ll be heading to the US in early March for another Storage Field Day event. If you haven’t heard of the very excellent Tech Field Day events, you should check them out. I’m looking forward to time travel and spending time with some really smart people for a few days. It’s also worth checking back on the Storage Field Day 12 website during the event (March 8 – 10) as there’ll be video streaming and updated links to additional content. You can also see the list of delegates and event-related articles that have been published.
I think it’s a great line-up of presenting companies this time around. There are a few I’m very familiar with and some I’ve not seen in action before.
It’s not quite a total greybeard convention this time around, but I think that’s only because of Jon‘s relentless focus on personal grooming. I won’t do the delegate rundown, but having met a number of these people I can assure the videos will be worth watching.
Here’s the rough schedule (all times are ‘Merican Pacific and may change).

I’d like to publicly thank in advance the nice folks from Tech Field Day who’ve seen fit to have me back, as well as my employer for giving me time to attend these events. Also big thanks to the companies presenting. It’s going to be a lot of fun. Seriously.
