Yesterday was the last day to upload draft presentations for IDUG 2007 - North America (May 6-10), taking place in San Jose, home of the Museum of Quilts and Textiles, not to mention the largest collection of Egyptian artifacts in Western North America, allegedly. So far I have uploaded 1 out of 3 drafts, and in the spirit of prevarication am now writing about it rather than finishing the job.
Browsing the conference grid I see there are 4 separate Informix tracks and plenty of new material. It's reasonable to expect we'll be learning a lot more about Cheetah (IDS 11.10). There is an early bird discount available until March 23rd.
The IBM Information Management Technical Conference 21-25 May 2007 in Düsseldorf, birthplace of Altbier and Kraftwerk, in that order, is currently gathering papers. Early bird discount lasts until February 28.
