After one week in Las Vegas where I attended IBM Think 2018 I’m finally back home in my regular daily routine. It was a great time! Meeting friends and customers, attending IBM and Community sessions as well as giving my own talk.
Beside my IBM Collaboration Solution topics my mate Stoeps and I used much of our time to learn about new tools, methods as well as dig deeper into them. Mostly related to Microservices, Docker and DevOps. We talked with many IBMers, attended Keynotes and talks about these topics.
