IBM z13 Technical IBM Redbooks Workshop

Here's a promising 1-day workshop from Redbooks, introducing nearly every technical aspect of the new IBM z13.

The workshop objectives
"The course participant will learn how to exploit the IBM z13 hardware and software infrastructure to effectively run modern mainframe workloads/solutions. The 1-day workshop will provide a detailed description of the new features and functions of the z13 and the IBM z Systems BladeCenter Extension (zBX) Model 004, thereby enabling clients, BPs, and IBMers to plan, implement, and operate the system environment in an expedited manner."
Here's a list of the main topics, but go to the workshop page itself for the full agenda.
Overview of the z13
z13 technical details
zBX Model 004
Software : Operating Systems support
z13 environmentals
z13 connectivity
STP enhancements
Planning and implementation considerations
Installation and migration

Statements of Direction
There's a worldwide coverage of the workshop and of course I'm looking for places near to Belgium and I think the most obvious choices would be London on Monday February 23, 2015 or Paris on Friday February 27, 2015. In Paris the workshop is given in French. The fees are 500£ for London and 600€ for Paris.
