New this year are Interop Roundtables. These small-group sessions, hosted by subject-matter experts, are designed to facilitate conversations around key topics and let you share your expertise with peers.
Monday’s roundtables include discussions on DevOps, hacktivism, mobile app development, and IT burnout. Roundtables run from 12:15 to 1:00 pm and include lunch. Roundtable attendance requires registration.
Please join us this afternoon from 4:30 to 5:30 pm for the Workshop Reception at the Conference Club, Lagoon J, where you can unwind with drinks and snacks and connect with fellow attendees.
Finally, Interop is pleased to host a matching event with NPower/The Community Corps, in which IT pros will be paired up with nonprofit organizations to provide technical consultation and advice. This event runs from 5:30 to 7:00 pm, and registration is required.
