After a long day of travel got to Denver and then drove down to Colorado Springs. The weather here is amazing, 75 degrees Fahrenheit and nice cool breeze.
Starting tonight HP has put together an aggressive agenda for all the attendees, with a kickoff Dinner tonight and then back-to-back two days of information technology and training sessions.
Had a chance to rest for a while and then decided to go to Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs.
Headed to the Phantom Canyon Micro Brewery in downtown Colorado Springs, unfortunately no pictures.
Stay tuned for a new blog post everyday during the HP TechDay 2009 Event.
See you folks tomorrow, an early AM start.
