Sophocles, Euripides, Terence, HPE: Theatre sessions at Microsoft Ignite, Part 1

OK, so perhaps one of the authors listed in the headline may not quite be on a par with the other three. That same one may also not be quite as good in terms of character development or in the exposition of the tragic consequences of unbridled hubris. But if innovative IT solutions are your main area of interest, HPE can weave quite a play and plot that’s guaranteed to interest you … and finish up each work with a happy ending. That’s more than can be said for a couple of our classical authors for sure.   

general card 1.jpgThe HPE theatre sessions that will be presented at HPE Booth 2125 at next week’s Microsoft Ignite are a great case in point. Here’s a sample of the 30 or so “plays” that HPE and our partners will be presenting.
