SPECIAL PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS: Tuesday, January 29:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9:00am: Asterisk 1-2-3 Training
============================================================
Come get a well rounded and informative introduction to the Asterisk Project. All are Welcome! Whether you are managing a team deploying an Asterisk implementation, evaluating potential replacements for a legacy telephony solution that's on its last leg, or just a general Asterisk "newbie" excited to learn what Asterisk is capable of, then this talk has something to offer you.

12:00pm: SDN PreCon Workshop
============================================================
Software-defined network is considered by many to be one of the most important, and potentially disruptive, developments in networking since the rise of the Internet. To date, networks and connectivity have come first, and applications have followed. SDN turns this model on its head, approaching networking from an apps-first standpoint.

In this SDN pre conference at ITEXPO Miami, we will define SDN, look at the technologies and components involved in SDN, the use cases of SDN, the players involved in moving SDN forward, and what this all means for networking as we know it.

Thursday, January 31 - 4:00pm
Featuring keynote address by John Sculley (#askjohnsculley)

This is your only chance to see these Startups before they take the world by storm – or their ideas fizzle. At the same time, strengthen relationships with your own colleagues and enjoy a fun evening. Come participate in an evening of entrepreneurial spirit – anchored by an unforgettable presentation by a pioneer in American business, John Sculley. As president of Pepsi, Sculley revolutionized the marketing of consumer goods when he introduced the Pepsi Challenge.

This year's startup presenters will then face intense scrutiny from you – along with a panel of judges – that will guide them and help determine if their path is just, and if their ideas will captivate or disappoint. Watch them pitch their concepts and try to convince you that you are witnessing the birth of the next amazing technology.

Engage with colleagues as you share in an evening where some of today's boldest entrepreneurs put their ideas – and perhaps their life savings – to the test.

Judging Panel: Craig Walker, CEO- Firespotter Labs, Jeff Uphues, Vice President - Cbeyond, Gerry Dehaven, Senior Partner - QAdvisors, Gary Pudles, CEO - AnswerNet (Moderator)
