Hello Informix User Group Leaders,
I wanted to forward this information on to you about opportunities in 2009 for Informix Training and/or User Group Meetings.
There will be Informix Roadshows, Business Partner Bootcamps and one day User Group Meetings that focus on IDS 11.5!
See information below that I received from Cathy Elliott of IBM. If you are interested in hosting a User Group meeting in your city this year, please contact me and I will work with IBM on arranging a full day technical meeting that focuses on the new features in IDS 11.5. ( see bullet below under Local User Group Meetings) Pradeep Kutty of IBM/Informix Advanced Support has put together a great agenda.
Thanks so much! I hope to hear from you soon.

Does your local user group need new ideas for your meetings? IBM and the IIUG have teamed up to create Tech Day content that includes a suggested agenda, presentation materials, demos and speakers who can be available for your user group meeting. Topics include the Informix Roadmap, Continuous Availability (MACH 11), Informix Warehouse, Compression, and other topics that can be customized for your group. This can also be used as an opportunity to reach out to universities in your area by adding an Academic Initiative Information Session.
Contact Cindy Lichtenauer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Pradeep Kutty (email@example.com) to get a Tech Day organized for your local user group.
The Informix Bootcamps are 3-day in-depth technical workshops for IBM Business Partners that focus on IDS 11.5. Detailed presentations and hands-on labs are included where attendees will gain in-depth knowledge of exciting new features and areas including:
Business Partners with applications that currently run on IDS or who are new to IDS can benefit from this workshop by learning how IDS can add value to your solutions and extend your market opportunities. Business consultants who are currently working with or planning to work with IDS for their customers are also welcome to attend.
