Its always inspiring to meet and chat with folks, share experiences and find new ways of doing things. I know how busy things can get at conferences, but this is a user conference and lets make time to connect with one another - learn something new and of course share something new!

My number one reason for attending .NEXT is to connect with the broader community!

I've always enjoyed the side conversations, connecting in small groups and meeting people we only chat with over social media. It's going to be an exciting time and things move very fast - so let's take some time to meet in the community lounge and chat!

You can also find me and others on Twitter [go], add your Twitter handle to the list.

What's your #1 Reason for Attending? REPLY to this thread and let others know what you are looking forward to!

For me, meeting other people and hearing their Nutanix stories are the best part. Learning why they chose Nutanix over other platforms, hearing the real world stories of success, failure and how challenges were overcome help me be a better engineer. Putting this information together with the technical topics and deep dives during the conference make the entire experience more than informative, and it's the people connections last beyond the conference.

Networking and seeing what new buttons will be added to the platform are primary for me.

Breaking out of the office, sitting in a new space can spark us to new approaches in our way of thinking 🙂

Being a fairly new customer, I'm looking forward to gaining a better understanding of "what's under the hood" with Nutanix and gather information on how others are leveraging Nutanix to help them in their environment.
The number one reason I send both of my teams, and like to attend .NEXT is the exposure to new technologies and concepts, and to find unique ways to further leverage and expand our existing Nutanix environments.

This will be my second .next conference. The main goal is to see new trends and new technologies. But in reality, It helps us into our journey to a 100% Nutanix and AHV environment.

Would love to go - I'm always super impressed by the innovations Nutanix comes out with. Unfortunetley, I have other plans so I won't be able to attend.

Enjoy all!
Nutanix has become such a major part of our IT operations, it is invaluable to me to attend the .Next conference. To network with Nutanix partners, find out what the latest developments are, what is coming in the future. I really enjoy some of the deep dive classes that serve to enhance my knowledge, even as a daily Nutanix/Prism user.

Sounds great @BobGee as I've mentioned to others be sure to stop by the community lounge and engage with your peers.

Don't worry @JoeLemaire you can feel like you are there by following the blogs and live stream. Also checking back here on the community site for access to the presentations.

Hope to see you both on this community site sharing your knowledge and expertise.

1) Supporting our partnership with Nutanix as one of the certified Nutanix Ready AHV & Integrated solutions.
2) Face to face & ear to ear are still my #1 favorite ways to build existing and begin new relationships.
3) Zenoss will have a booth to showcase our integrated solution. Check out the Nutanix ZenPack in action.
4) Great sessions and keynote lineup.
5) Personal reason - my cousin BJ Boyle has been at Nutanix since the start and we get to meet up in New Orleans to catch up over a meal and/or some great Jazz. Family is always a priority!
6) Location is great. Nice choice and kudos to the team that got NEXT 18 in the Big Easy!
