Of Course there is More to Life than Data

One of the great things about IT/Dev Connections is that it brings together experts and communities spanning technologies and platforms throughout Information Technology.  While of course data is the most important atmosphere in IT (I might be biased in this regard) we're not alone.  Our value would not be accessible without other technologies working in concert and doing so in an optimal and informed fashion.  IT/Dev Connections allows all of us, across all technical disciplines, to learn complimentary technologies while also focusing on our primary areas of interest.  In that regard I recommend taking some time to also review the offerings from the other tracks as well when evaluating your plans to attend IT/Dev Connections this September.
