The desert beckons again, but I  won't have room to see Red Rock Canyon this time around! I've got a full schedule of events set up for me in Las Vegas next week for the Aruba Airheads Conference. The group of blogger attendees I'll be traveling with are:

I've never been to an Aruba Airheads Conference before, so I'm sure I'll have lots to report. The agenda for the event starts off with the opening speakers:
Aruba Weather Report - Dominic Orr, President & CEO

Microsoft’s Lync Deployment over Wi-Fi – Victoria Poncini, Microsoft
Enabling Wireless Beyond the Hospital – Nico Arcino, Kaiser
Aruba Technology Update & Demos – Keerti Melkote & Friends

Then we move onto the "hands-on" portion of the event:

Tech Playground: See live demonstrations and speak with the experts on Remote Networking, Virtual Controllers, Mobility Controller, ClearPass, AirWave, Outdoor Mesh.

The technical breakout sessions vary from introductory to technical deep dives (click to expand):

Expect to hear lots more from me next week as I report back what I see and hear at the event. We will be recording a special “Tech Field Day Roundtable” video discussion as well.  Full disclosure: this trip is sponsored by Aruba in conjunction with Foskett Services to bring us bloggers together to get our candid opinions and feedback.
