NOTE: Post has been updated with links to the videos from Cloud Field Day presentations at HPE. 

HPE Palo Alto_EBC.jpgWhat's Cloud Field Day?

Cloud Field Day is an event that brings vendors and independent bloggers together. Stephen Foskett started Cloud Field Day under his Tech Field Day brand. When I first got active in social media, Stephen was one of the first people I followed and connected with. 

From the website, it says, "Field Day events bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format."  Over the 3 days, the twelve Cloud Field Day delegates visited 9 vendors. Their visit to HPE was the last one on Friday.
