Man speaking in front of Dell-sponsored panel at SXSWedu 2013We always enjoy SXSWedu week in our hometown of Austin, TX, and this week kicks off our biggest presence at the show yet!

Our education team and Intel will be hosting the #DellVenue, the hottest pop-up for education technology conversations and connections in town, in Brush Square Park today - Wednesday. The #DellVenue is super modern, totally wired and stocked with the latest Dell technology to boost productivity and spark creativity. Come hang out at the #DellVenue to catch-up on email, meet with colleagues and play with our new line of products.  

We’ll also have a series of sessions, networking opportunities and conversations outlined below. Stop by and see us any time! If you’re not planning to attend SXSWedu, but located in Austin, you can register for free access to the Education Expo and the #DellVenue here on Tuesday, March 4 beginning at 2pm.

You can also follow the action on Twitter via the hashtags noted here and potentially find yourself on our Social Media Command Center wall like Carl Hooker did last year and noted in his blog comparing SXSWedu to NASSP.
