WTF Next? Dev ramblings from a master of nothing.

Have a couple free days in Baton Rouge this upcoming week? Well, if you’d like them to be less free there is an upcoming event.

This will be my first trip to the conference, and I’m excited to see what it is about and to learn from speakers from Dell, Microsoft, IBM, and even the CIO of the state of Louisiana (for the keynote)


Here’s the description from the website:

Mark your calendars for one of Baton Rouge Metro’s largest premiere Information Technology events - The Seventeenth Annual Council of Information Service Directors Technology Conference and Expo – October 27 & 28, at the Holiday Inn Select Executive Center located at 4728 Constitution Ave, Baton Rouge, LA.

Be prepared for two activity packed days of presentations and panel discussions from academic, industry, and government sector experts on a variety of timely topics such as,

  • Cyber Security
  • Virtualization
  • Future Directions for the Microsoft Corporation
  • Mashups
  • Web Design
  • The Green Enterprise
  • Health Care Automation & Systems
  • Visualization
  • Geographic Information Systems

Visit over 32 vendor exhibits covering a wide breath of IT services.

Take advantage of networking opportunities with your colleagues from state agencies, higher education institutions, and the private sector.

After a long, intense day of education and professional exchanges with your colleagues, transition to a social and relaxed setting with several hospitality suites and entertainment venues during the evening.

To make sure your energy level is on par with the intensity of the conference, take advantage of two full formal lunches, and loads of snacks between presentations to satisfy almost any appetite.

Meet and hear Louisiana’s new Chief Information Officer, Ed Driesse give insights on Louisiana government’s future direction.
