The inaugural IBM TechXchange occurred at MGM Grand in Las Vegas from September 11 to September 14 with a respectable attendee count of somewhere around 3000.
I was invited to speak there and did a talk with Emily as a co-speaker. It would be an exaggeration to claim that the talk was well attended, but those who showed up got a very interactive session presented with lots of code samples and questions answered. The slides are, as always available on my SpeakerDeck.
Wherever Emily shows up, there will be morning runs, and IBM TechXchange 2023 was no exception. Running in the morning is the key in Las Vegas when the temperatures are at 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit).
The social activity on Tuesday was at Topgolf, where we could enjoy some food and try out our swings. I was happy to hit the ball a couple of times, but it was great fun nevertheless.
