About the Organizers
Tech Field Day is a regular event that brings together vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format. Independent bloggers, freelance writers, and podcasters have a public presence that has immense influence on the ways that products and companies are perceived and by the general public.
SDNCentral is the leading centralized source of news and resources for network virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN). Networking hardware is a $40 billion market, and SDN has the potential to drastically change the way hardware is bought and sold. With players in the field starving for information to help them determine how or whether SDN can benefit them, we are a community devoted to sharing information, connecting people, and developing the next generation of networking.
Packet Pushers is a podcast and website focussed on data networking. The weekly podcast reaches a highly technical audience of 3500 network engineers and architects.

Coming to #SDDC13? Join us for the Symposium After the Symposium!
According to ancient Greek practice, a symposium meant “to drink together”. It was a traditional venue to debate and revel with others. We won’t have beer and revelry during our SDDC Symposium, but we will afterwards!
The Symposium After the Symposium is the perfect place to collect your thoughts and drive discussion related to Software Defined Data Centers and other topics. Questions will be answered and points will be discussed. But more importantly, there will be beer and wine to drink, and Hors d’oeuvres to eat!
Free tickets are available now! Please register so we will know how many are coming!
