We’ve got May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and more this month, but CA Technologies thinks a day is not enough to celebrate the mainframe.
All month long, mainframe software vendor CA Technologies is hosting what it calls May Mainframe Madness 2012 (MMM2012). From its own description, the online event offers “more than 100+ valuable sessions, demos, papers and other valuable tools available over every business day in May.” Most of those tools are CA-specific but the idea of a month-long series of hour-long keynote addresses is highly appealing.
Registration lasts all month as well. You’ve already missed out on several days of mini-lectures, but coming up are talks on security management, CA’s DB2 database, storage management, Linux on System Z, MICS resource management and more. Though most of the speakers are CA employees, the varied topics will surely overlap somebody’s interests. The CA Mainframe Twitter account has been listing the sessions, but you can find a full list on their website as well.
And in case you’re in the market for a trip across the states, here’s a fun little list of other trade shows coming up in the near future. I’m not sure how the SpaceCraft Technology Expo made it into the IT list, but hey, you know I’m game for space tech.
