On 14th of November 2013, there was a conference "GigaCon. Data Center & Private Cloud" organized by SW Konferencje Sp. z o.o. Sp. k. and BAMT Sp. z o.o. Sp. k. at Hotel Mercure, Poznań, Poland. My friend, Sebastian Jary, attended this conference with an interesting presentation, which – no doubts – is worth to be distinguished on Turing's Man Blog. It was titled (in Polish): "Dobre praktyki w procesie planowania, budowy i eksploatacji ośrodków przetwarzania danych z perspektywy inwestora" (in English: "Good practices in the process of planning, construction and maintenance of data center facilities from the investor's perspective").
I had a pleasure to review Sebastian's presentation before the event, so I know it was very well composed and full of informative, practical material. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend "GigaCon. Data Center & Private Cloud" to see his lecture life. We had only some occasions to train together before the event and make some reviews. However, I could be sure that Sebastian is not left alone, because our team member – Zenon Ruta – was there on the audience, being his supporter.
Therefore, I would like to recommend to check the presentation, which is now available on-line – at least for all industry representatives, who are able to read in Polish (well, we can still try to use Google Translate to get the overall idea behind original presentation).
Sebastian Jary on "GigaCon. Data Center & Private Cloud 2013" conference, in Poznań, Poland...
Such events like conferences or workshops are great places where we can exchange important information, gain new ideas, market news and trends insight – and finally, also develop ourselves in the professional field, including a good opportunity to grow our own network of contacts. This helps to build a strong industry community in Poland, as well as is a great opportunity to learn a lot from others. There is no better method than to confront our own experience, results and ideas with the wider public – and discuss what can be done better or different way. A great time to summarize and re-think the past and collect enough information to plan future moves.
What's more? I'm glad we (Data Centre Services Team/Nordea) realized our commitments for year 2013. Not only we agreed to perform very well at work and defined strictly professional targets related to internal projects and daily activities, but also we decided to share our current knowledge and experience with other industry experts. The idea was to develop new skills in both professional and personal field. I believe this worked for us.
And now... It's a good moment to start thinking about forthcoming year's challenges. There are some interesting opportunities on the horizon :-)
