IIUG Conference 2010

I'm happy to post the announcement of the IIUG Conference 2010 here on The Informix Zone:

Announcing the 2010 International Informix Users Group (IIUG) Conference

The International Informix Users Group (IIUG) will host the third annual Informix Conference April 25 – 28, 2010 at the Overland Park Marriott hotel in Overland Park, KS (Kansas City).

IBM Virtual Conference: Data in Action

IBM presents the second semi-annual Data in Action Virtual Conference. This is an online event directed to IT Executives and Managers.

I've been told by IBM that Informix will be part of this event. Otherwise I would probably not advertise it on The Informix Zone :-) So this is hopefully a good chance to get the latest news and hear what analysts have to say about Informix. However I wouldn't expect too much from this as "analysts" tend to say what the sponsors in the background want them to say :-) Anyway let's give it a try. Here are the details for the event:

Photos from IIUG Kansas

The unsurpassed Frenchmen Jean-Georges Perrin uploaded a whole bunch of conference pictures to Facebook.

Just wondering if they are gambling with IBM about the Informix Marketing budget :-)

Here are the direct links (you need to have a facebook account to watch the photos) :

IDS: New Technology and New Articles

The IIUG conference is running at full speed and IBM delivers interesting features with the brand new IDS release 11.50.xC4. Here are the links to the relevant information:

IIUG Conference

I wish my Informix friends a great and successful conference ! Unfortunately I'll not be able to join the conference as some private things are currently prior-ranking.

Enjoy your stay at the conference, talk to other users about IDS technology and participate in the bunch of technical workshops offered.

A message from Art

A message from my friend Art Kagel regarding the IIUG 2009 Conference:

I'm sending this to all of my contacts, both in my capacity as a member of the International 
Informix Users' Group and as CTO of Oninit, to remind you all that the 2009 IIUG Users' 
Conference is coming up fast.  In a difficult economy we as business people cannot afford to 
lose our edge and one great way to keep honed is constant training.  The half and full day 

Report from Int. Informix User Conference 2008

Report from Int. Informix User Conference 2008

A little delayed but hopefully still interesting: Here is my report about the IIUG conference 2008 that took place in Kansas City, Kansas, USA at the end of April.

The days before the conference

My girlfriend and I stayed for one week in Chicago - The Windy City - before driving to Kansas City. Chicago is a great city with a lot of interesting places and we really enjoyed our stay. The Lake Michigan coast is beautiful and I liked the many bicycle tracks around it (see photo below). There a lot of bikers in the Chicago area, so the sports outfitters offer - beside the traditional focus on basketball, baseball... - also hiqh-quality bike wear. As a passionate mountainbiker and with the for European's convenient currency rate, I really enjoyed shopping :-) We also went to the local Apple store several times and I was amazed about the buzz around the Apple products. The IDS MAC port could be a real clever move by IBM, if they are able to attract the application developers. In the meantime we're now also proud owners of a MacBook :-)
