The System Center Universe 2013 conference is coming up this week – Thursday, Jan. 31st!  Set aside a day to spend listening to some of the top System Center Speakers and get to know some more people in the System Center community!  The event will be held in person in Irving, TX and a FREE live broadcast will be streamed over the web to regional System Center user group locations and right to your PC!  All of the sessions will be recorded and made available online afterwards so you can watch them again or catch up on sessions you missed out on due to a boring meeting.

Use the hashtag #SCU2013 to keep up with all the action on twitter.  We’ll be tweeting a ton on the day of the conference.  It makes it a lot more fun to participate through Twitter.  Last year SCU was a trending topic in Austin.

Also, if you haven't already seen some of the funny videos the Catapult (hosts for the event) team put out, you should definitely check them out:

 

See you there!
