The GestaltIT Tech Field Day is upon us… Stephen Foskett has put together an amazing event. The GestaltIT authors and other peers coming together to listen to the interesting things that some vendors are doing. It’ll be held out in Silicon Valley from November 12th-13th.
Why is this important? Because it will give attendees some good hands-on experiences with the products and not just marketcture slides.
We’ll all be blogging about the event and also tweeting with the #techfieldday hash tag on twitter.
Here are the sponsors:

Here’s the official blurb from the GestaltIT.com site.
Today, we are pleased to demonstrate an expanded vision by announcing the first-ever Gestalt IT event, Tech Field Day! We will be bringing many of our own authors as well as other like-minded folks to Silicon Valley on November 12 and 13, 2009 for a live, in-person event. We have invited some of the most interesting and innovative companies to sponsor the event, presenting their technology and products.
This is not a trade show, a junket, or an analyst day. Rather, the participating sponsors will be engaging the attendees, inviting feedback, and fostering open communication. We were inspired by HP’s series of Tech Days and wanted to broaden the concept, bringing in more products and a broader range of technologies. We also liked the idea of creating and managing a similar event as an independent third party.
