New at LISA '05: The Hit the Ground Running Track
We all know that staying ahead of the game in this dynamic industry is always a challenge. New technologies mean spending hours researching what they do and how best to use them.
This year, technical sessions attendees have the opportunity to get a head start on key technologies with 15-minute talks in the new Hit the Ground Running Track.
Imagine someone coming up to you and saying, "OK, here are the top 5 things you have to know to get started with topic x. Here are the acronyms you'll encounter, here are the two basic concepts, and here are some good Web sites and books you'll want to look at to get deeper into this topic." You'll get that and more from this new track.
With three different sessions covering multiple topics, the Hit the Ground Running Track provides ample opportunities to get a jump start on the must-know topics.
