I will be attending CHI-NOG 10 this year. Just like I said in a previous posts about CHI-NOG, I am super excited about going to learn some new things and meet some great networking folks.
Snippet from CHI-NOG's website about what it is:
CHI-NOG is the first and the only Chicago based Network Operators Groups. The group was started by network engineers and network architects to create a community, to learn from each other and meet others. We get away from our keyboards and screens to meet in person every year bringing in speakers from all over the US to learn and have a beer with them. CHI-NOG is vendor neutral so we aren’t trying to sell you anything, but you do get a pretty awesome t-shirt each year for attending.
I have attended each since CHI-NOG 07 and have always loved it. The venue is great, the speakers are great, and I always learn a lot. The vendor hall afterwards is usually small and intimate, so you can ask all the questions you want. The vendors are normally pretty laid back instead of being super sales-y.
