Informix User Group Meetings in North America


If you are in North Texas, Chicago, Colorado or the Great Northwest and you are an Informix fanatic (why else would you be reading this?) then you need to plan to attend the Local Informix User Group meetings scheduled for the very near future.


Colorado, Great Northwest and North Texas all seem to have a similar tentative agenda:

Come and see how IBM is helping Informix evolve.  
Come and meet peers around the area.  
Come and hear from experts and each other. 

Tentative Agenda
  • 'Stories from Clients - the good, the bad and the ugly' - Mark Scranton, principal, Mark Scranton Group
  • Warehouse Accelerator review and demo - Carlton Doe, IBM
  • A Sneak Peek for Centaurus - the next major Informix release - IBM
Complimentary Lunch will be served


Chicago has a different (non tentative) agenda:

Come and see how IBM is helping Informix evolve.
Come and meet peers around the area.
Come and hear from experts and each other.

Agenda
  • Breakfast (provided by IBM) and networking
  • Upgrading to IDS 11.7, Best Practices, Dr. Pradeep Natarajan - IBM
  • Informix in the Cloud, Nagaraju Inturi - IBM
  • Lunch (provided by IBM)
  • Storage features in IDS, Dr. Pradeep Natarajan - IBM
  • Best Practices in High Availability. Nagaraju Inturi - IBM
I'm very excited to see some activity in the North American User Groups since I live in North America and there hasn't been a lot of activity outside of the Southeastern Informix User Group. Maybe I just don't hear about them down here in Austin, TX. Thanks to Tom Rieger and Rob Beal from IBM who I assume are helping to get these going since they are the contacts for questions about these meetings, sponsors Xtivia and Kazer for sponsoring the meetings and thanks to the speakers Mark Scranton, Carlton Doe, Pradeep Natarajan, Nagaraju Inturi for donating their time to these events.
