For those of you who have attended Lotusphere, you knew it was a special event. Sadly, 2015 is the last year for Lotusphere (aka IBM Connect, aka IBM ConnectED). My colleague Stuart McIntyre sums it up in his blog the essence of what that event has meant to so many people who attended. Enjoy the good read.
IBM Connect evolves to meet the needsof our technical clients and partners
In 2015, IBM Connect will transform into an even more in-depth technical event,“IBM ConnectED” that provides the deep “nuts and bolts” technical experience that is so important to our long-standing technical community.
Specifically designed for technologists of all levels, including CIOs, IT managers and practitioners, this new event will offer deep-dive technical sessions, demos, labs and roundtables, access to IBM technical experts, and more.
