SHARE Providence 2017: “Big Happenings in a Little Place Will be Wicked Awesome!”
I’m not sure I can recall SHARE ever being held in the smallest state in the union, but is there a better place for big happenings than New England in the summer? Besides, by the time we leave SHARE Providence 2017 we will all have adopted “wicked awesome” as part of our vocabulary. Like having the opportunity to meet new friends and catch-up with old colleagues to discuss recent advancements in the Z IBM mainframe world will be… “wicked awesome.”
