Yesterday, Monday March 18th 2019, was the first full day of NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) at the San Jose Convention Center. The Day 1 Keynote with Jensen Huang is already posted online, and you can find all 2 hours and 40 minutes of major announcements for your viewing pleasure here.

For the last couple years, I have been honored by NVIDIA to be recognized as a vGPU Community Advisor (NGCA), along with 23 other members from around the world.

Of the 24 of us, four of us were hanging out in person for the Day 1 Keynote, as I was joined by Thomas Poppelgaard (@_Poppelgaard), Tony Foster (@wonder_nerd), Sean Massey (@seanpmassey) and our favorite NGCA leader Jared Cowart (@IT_JaredCowart). I believe Jared’s official title at NVIDIA is “Community Cat Wrangler” but I’m not sure.

Unfortunately the NGCA member attendance at GTC this year would have been more significant, but many members were already traveling to Redmond for Microsoft MVP Summit and couldn’t attend both.

Before, during, and after the keynote, there was a massive amount of announcements, news and press releases, 29 in total! I’m sure this isn’t the end of announcements this week, so I’ll be sure to keep the information updated as needed. To make it easier to navigate these announcements and find the relevant info you may be interested in, I have organized these into major categories.
