Busting the Myth: What Happens in Vegas

Over 11,000 attendees participated in today's HP Discover events. All you had to do was look down the corridors and in the Discover Zone to realize just how many people are at this year's event!

The dizzying number of sessions had me running ragged, zipping from session to session. Comfortable shoes were the key to an enjoyable day.


Every time I sat down in a session or in the ExpertOne lounge, I recognized people I've met at past Discover events. I could fill my entire day networking with ExpertOne certified professionals in the HP ExpertOne lounge (Level 1 - Casanova 601). Listening carefully, I picked up more than a few tips I'll take home and apply to my job. The chance to talk to industry peers, ask questions and learn justify the cost of attending HP Discover.


Over 200 people visited the Pearson VUE test center today. By the end of the week, over 800 people will have sat in a seat in the test center. Many of these people will pass exams and achieve new certifications. At least ten people walked up to me in the ExpertOne lounge to let me know they achieved a new certification.


Looking at the saying "what happens in Vegas" doesn't apply to HP Discover!


What will you take home from HP Discover? Me, tired feet.
