Sometimes it’s a great idea to detach from the virtual world and get solidly educated in the physical world. With real, live instructors and face-to-face conversations with peers. (Peers with beers?) As one excellent example, IBM is sponsoring the System z Technical University in Budapest from May 12 through 16, 2014.
Budapest is in Hungary, in case you’re wondering. Bucharest is in Romania. This May’s zUniversity is in Budapest. If you go to Bucharest you won’t have nearly as much fun from May 12 through 16. Although I’ve heard Bucharest is a lovely place, too. After you visit Budapest you can visit Bucharest if you’d like.
