Innovate 2012: 3 more reasons to go!

We have such a great line up of sessions for you this year.  Please check out our new promo page where you will get to meet our wonderful Jazz Development Team, see what they will be presenting to you, and get to know who’s who and what they do on our team.  A record number of our team’s top developers and leaders in our industry are headed to Orlando this year which means more high quality, great technical sessions than ever before! That’s reason #1 to pack your SPF 50 and head to Orlando.

But, if outstanding technical sessions aren’t enough to get you to push the register button, maybe a great night of rock and roll will get you down to Orlando. For all of you 80s rock and roll fans out there, we will be entertained by the classic rock band, Foreigner, at our Wednesday night event at SeaWorld. Who out there hasn’t sung Hot Blooded on at least one occasion whilst playing air guitar and dancing on their coffee table?  Please don’t tell me I’m the only one!  Some vintage rock and roll with a great band and over 4,000 of your closest friends and colleagues is reason #2.

And wait, here’s another reason in the #3 slot

Discovery channel stars, Mt. Everest conquerors, and string field theory founders.   Sarah Backhouse is Founder and Host of Future360 — an online cleantech video network showcasing cutting-edge cleantech innovation from around the globe.  She is the considered the EcoDiva and is a green planet celebrity.  Jamie Clarke is not only an extreme adventurer, but one of the most gifted storytellers on the speaking circuit today.  His pursuit of Mount Everest, the Seven Summits, and the Arabian Desert epitomizes human perseverance, and he shares tales of adventure and an enduring message with audiences around the world.  And Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author, and popularizer of science. He’s the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), and continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory. Cool stuff.

I think you should march yourself straight into the boss’s office and tell her, “I really need to go to Innovate 2012!”   If you are following us here on, it only makes sense that you follow us down to Orlando.  It will definitely be a week that promises great technical sessions, great software, great speakers, and great fun!
