The speaker selections have been made, the speakers have been notified and the speakers are diligently working on many new presentations that cover Informix 11.7 topics like Flexible Grid and Automatic Storage Provisioning.
There are also many new topics that cover all Informix versions if you haven't made the leap to the latest and greatest yet. We've got Performance Tuning, Troubleshooting and Developer sessions by the IBMers who actually implement the engine code and from DBAs and Developers who use the engine in the field to give you the most well rounded Informix training that money can buy for a fraction of the cost.
I'm also happy to report that the Conference Planning Committee has added more Free Half Day Hands on Labs sessions this year and added more Sunday Half and Full Day Tutorials to help you maximize your training budget.
After all of this Informix training you'll be ready to take advantage of the FREE IBM CERTIFICATION TESTING. Almost any Information Management test will be available for you to take, not just the Informix ones. Take as many as you like as many times as you need to, it don't cost nuthin'. The free certification testing is something the IIUG has been able to provide for many years now and I feel it adds tremendous value to the conference. When I first started attending these conferences, the free certification testing alone was enough to convince my boss and the bean counters at my company that the cost of the conference was worth it. Not sure if you've looked at the Average Joe cost for one of these tests, they ain't cheap and if you don't take advantage of this you are seriously missing out.
With all the Tutorials, Hands on Labs, Technical Sessions and Certification Testing you'll be seeing and doing you're going to need some food in your belly to give you the required energy to make it through the day. I can tell you that you won't go hungry at an IIUG Informix Conference. You'll get 3 meals a day and we're talking real food here, not your typical conference food by any stretch of the imagination.
Finally, in the evenings you can relax with friends and have cold drink or ten and get ready to do it all over again the next day. No drink coupons here, the complimentary beer and wine is usually all you can handle, bro.
