[ NOTE: machine translation with the help of DeepL translator without additional proofreading and spell checking ]


Fresh from the Pure Storage Accelerate 2019 registration in Austin/Texas a few pictures and directly to the hotel room to share the first impressions directly with the community.


The journey from Frankfurt/Germany (with flight LH468) on Saturday was - contrary to expectations - quite stress-free. A short delayed takeoff at 10:18 (UTC +02:00) and a little turbulent landing at 14:50 (UTC -05:00). However, the flight time of about 11h is already quite long ...


Impressions Saturday: City of Austin & EMEA Partner Reception


After passing the security check, we took an Uber to the hotel on the Colorado River. From there you have about 10min walk to the fairgrounds. The outside temperatures are not without the dry air at about 37 degrees. First stretch your legs and walk a few meters, buy drinks and take snapshots - Austin is beautiful!..:

Then briefly to the hotel and freshen up for the Pure Storage EMEA partner reception. With hungry stomachs we went to a bar in the direction of the party mile 301 E 6th St. Here the streets are also completely cleared of cars during the evening, closed and exclusively accessible for pedestrians to the discos and bars. Late it did not become ... against 22:00 o'clock missed me the jet lag then so gradually a blow:


Impressions Sunday: 11:00 Registration possible


Sleeping in was as expected: at 6:12 am my inner clock told me - RISE! Since the sun rose only around 7:15, it was still dark and I used the time for a short training session. The hungry stomach was satisfied with omelettes in a small cafe. Afterwards we went to the registration in the direction of the exhibition center. We still had to wait a little, because registration was only possible from 11:00.

After a short security check, we went into the building.


The "fellow admirers"/DELL provide a statement


At 11:00 a.m. sharp, the first "riots" / "blue march" in front of the Convention Center. Little by little DELL Technologies printed Bikecabs/Biketaxis arrive directly in front of the fair entrance.

The already arrived Pure Community amused themselves splendidly about this small attention.


On the way to the hotel, I was offered a free ride with my welcome gift directly "want to take a free ride". So dear Pure Community - you can probably be driven for free over the next few days. or ->


It's 2:02 pm. I'm going to relax a bit before the program continues this evening.


The next days will be exciting. Stay tuned!
