Next stop Edinburgh – the European Technical Boot Camp 2019
The NonStop community is very much alive and kicking and is gathering every year at local and regional user group events around the world. The event season has picked up speed this year, and the next stop of the ‘NonStop event train’ is going to be at Edinburgh, Scotland, where this year’s European Technical Boot Camp (ETBC – formerly known as eBITUG and European NonStop Hotspot (GTUG)) takes place from 13-15 May.
All the NonStop user events, big and small, provide a great forum for customers and vendors alike to come together, discuss and explore ideas and requirements and to enjoy each others company.
But what makes these events so appealing for the ‘NonStop tribe’? What’s in it for the users and vendors who invest their time and money to attend?
While online community platforms are a very good way to connect with your peers remotely and globally, it is the peer-to-peer or face-to-face communication that makes user group events like the ETBC or TBC (to name but a few) so successful. It’s the best opportunity for NonStop users to meet up with the main vendors in the market and senior representatives of HPE. It allows them to collaborate and to network. Working with other customers and the vendors to exchange ideas and customer needs can even result in the development of new features, applications, and products that address those requirements. Meeting and speaking with other NonStop customers attending the many presentations can allow one to improve their skills and to learn about features and processes that perhaps were not known before. Additionally, it is always good to meet others who have experienced similar situations so that collaboration can be more efficient and fulfilling. For customers, vendors and HPE alike, user group meetings are a cost-effective way of meeting many NonStop market stakeholders in one go.
comforte’s commitment to the NonStop market and user group events remains undiminished.
