The Chicago Infomrix User Group meeting looks to be a good one. Here is the invite email form Rob Beal...
Hello Informix Users!
Well, we finally have an agenda for the fall meeting!!
I hope you have saved the date, eg. Thursday, September 10th, to come to our meeting. As we discussed at the last meeting, this quarters theme will be around Application Development. We have an exciting agenda planned. We are pleased to announce that the esteemed Jonathan Leffler will be coming to Schaumburg to speak on Informix 4GL. We also have a local guru, Mr. Jamie Gebhard, who will be speaking on the new Informix Virtual Appliance and explore what that means to the Informix community.
So, down to the details...
As I said, the next meeting will be on Thursday, September 10th at the IBM Schaumburg offices (please note: NOT DOWNTOWN!!).
Here is the agenda:
8:30 - 9:00 Continental Breakfast (provided by IBM)
9:00 - 10:15 The Informix Virtual Appliance, or "Where do I get all the Free Stuff!". Presented by Jamie Gebhard, IDS developer
10:15 - 10:30 Break
10:30 - 11:45 Informix 4GL Roadmap presented by Jonathan Leffler, Senior Technical Staff Member, IBM Informix
11:45 - 1:00 Lunch (provided by IBM)
1:00 - 2:15 SQL Tuning w/IDS 11.5, Tips & Tricks. Presented by Jeff Filippi
2:15 - 2:30 Break
2:30 - 3:45 Application Development for Informix using GeneXus. Presented by Roy Hart, GeneXus
3:45 - 5:00 Networking
If you saw Jeff's SQL Tuning presentation a couple of years ago, please plan to see this one. He has re-done it for all the new features available in 11.5, and its really good!
For those of you who may not have been to the IBM offices in Schaumburg, we are located at 10 N. Martingale Road, Woodfield Preserve. The building is about a mile south of the Woodfield Mall area. We will be in the South White Pines room on the second floor.
We really hope you can make it to this meeting as it should be a good one. If you can make it, please contact me, Rob Beal, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if you have any questions as well.
We hope to see you there! and as always, thanks for your continued support of Informix!
