Keep Your New Year's Resolution With TechU

With the dawn of 2019, many of us embark on an annual tradition of making New Year’s resolutions. Self-improvement goals typically make the list. From losing weight, to exercising regularly, to reading more books, the options for betterment are many. Yet it’s common knowledge that very few people keep their resolutions. A U.S. News & World Report study reports 80 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail by mid-February.
But don’t despair. There’s a resolution that’s easy to keep: investing in your skills development by attending an IBM Systems Technical University (TechU) event. As an IT professional, you’re keenly aware of the breakneck pace of change in the industry. It’s critical to keep your skills current to remain competitive.
IBM Systems TechU events can help you accomplish this with 17 global technical training conferences. Each event delivers lectures, hands-on labs and demos led by IBM Distinguished Engineers, developers, and product experts. Plus, there are multiple roundtable discussions, a robust Solution Center and many professional networking opportunities.
For a peek of what to expect in 2019, watch our TechU worldwide video.
