Another 7x24 Exchange - Great People and Content

Green (Low Carbon) Data Center Blog

Author: Dave Ohara

I am back at 7x24 Exchange and trying out a switch to iOS only devices. I am using iPad Pro with a Logitech Create keyboard. The conference has just started officially.

Well for me it started at 4 pm when I walked in the lobby and started with people. Great people. Many were presenting and reminded me of the ideas they are discussing. Attendance is over 700 and the conference carries on in its relevance in the industry.
