Yours truly will be at the big show next week, and I hope that all of you in the blogosphere will be able to sweet talk your management into letting you go as well. For those of you who have already won a golden ticket:
* By all means let's meet in person. When not in a customer or partner meeting, at various times I'll be on duty for Enterprise Verification at the main Cadence booth (#3751, North Hall), or supporting the OVM World booth (#3450, North Hall). Additionally, whenever possible I'll be sneaking into the verification segments of the new "User Tracks" as per my personal preference for "paper centric" shows. Finally, I'll even be in The Purple booth (#1120) Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 5:30-6:00pm as a panelist for "Competitors in Cyberspace: Why Be Friends?"
* I'll be tweeting to highlight and comment on verification-centric events that I believe are relevant and/or extraordinary, and to support "tweetups" on site. As marketer, if I see especially good trade craft (i.e. a truly unique booth design or gimmick), I'll report that as well. My Twitter id is @jhupcey.
* For those who can't make it to DAC in person, like I did for DVCon 2009 I'll post photos and videos whenever possible so you can get a flavor for the show.
See you in SF!
