TFD-LogoTech(nical) Field Day are well know events, organized by Stephen Foskett and his team, with the purpose of bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format.

There are different Tech Field Day events by topic (Storage, Virtualization, Networking, Wireless and, this year, also one on Data), but also some special events live from other IT events: Tech Field Day Extra and Tech Field Day Live. And although not a Tech Field Day event, the same staff has occasionally organized a live Symposium event to showcase a particular area of enterprise IT technology. Usually those events are in US, but past year there was, for the first time (as I remember), also one in European edition: Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld Europe 2014.

Now, finally, is the turn of Italy: the fist Tech Field Day event will be the Tech Field Day Extra at Cisco Live Milan 2015, during the Cisco Live EMEA 2015 on January 26-30.

This event will probably also have a format little different from previous Tech Field Day Extra (stay tuned for more info about it), but will be a great opportunity to have more European edition editions of those kind of events.

The delegates list is not yet complete, but there are already some interesting names. Like in the previous European Tech Field Day Extra, I’m really honored to be part at this event, and will be a great opportunity to improve my skills and knowledge in the networking area (that is probably my weak point) and also will be great opportunity to share experience with some great experts in this area.
