Are You Ready for BrainShare? Part II Shawn Dickerson, Novell eDirectory product marketing manager

We're now just a few days away from the kickoff of BrainShare 2004 in Salt Lake City. Hopefully that means you're putting the finishes touches on your conference agenda and looking forward to what promises to be one killer event.

For the folks here at Novell, the few days prior to BrainShare are generally filled with polishing presentations, tweaking demos and not a whole lot of sleep. But the end result is always worth it.

Last week we talked about the BrainShare session tracks that will offer tips, tricks, tools and roadmaps for Novell eDirectory. But the sessions aren't the only way to get the scoop on Novell's industry-leading directory service. Here are a few other must-sees at BrainShare:

  • Spend some time at the eDirectory tables in the One Net Solutions Lab, located in Exhibit Halls C & D of the Salt Palace. Novell engineers, consultants and support personnel will be showcasing some of the latest advancements in eDirectory and related technologies. Among other things, we'll be demoing new capabilities that boost directory reliability and performance, a live 100 million-user eDirectory tree running on SUSE Linux, Kerberos-based authentication, new methods for managing digital certificates, embedded directory technology and the latest network management tools.
  • Check out the eDirectory materials in your registration bag. There's a technical insert that outlines the new features in eDirectory since BrainShare 2003, as well as free evaluation copies of eDirectory and iManager on the Nsure Resource DVD.
  • Be sure not to miss the BrainShare keynotes, which as always, will set the tone for the conference and highlight new Novell products and solutions, including some upcoming milestones in the directory and identity management space.

If you'd like a single quick reference document that highlights all these eDirectory-related activities, including the list of sessions from last week's column, you can download this pdf file.

It's going to be a great BrainShare. Hope to see you there!
