This week we have the International Informix Users' Group annual conference. It is being held at the Overland Park Marriott.
Here's a bit of trivia for you: In 2008, Overland Park was listed as the 9th best place to live in the US. No doubt having the Informix lab close helped its ranking :-). You can check it at:CNNMoney.com
Sunday was a day of tutorials with eight tracks running at once. I arrived in the early afternoon. It is amazing how quickly you can get into interesting conversations, discussing different projects and business solutions.
The evening reception was a success with lots of networking and good food. This is a great start to what should be a very interesting and useful conference. Monday starts with a keynote from Dr. Arvind Krishna and continues with five tracks on a variety of subjects.
