i-UG’s i-POWER Midlands Conference

i-UG, the UK’s largest active user group for users of IBM i, is delighted to announce that registration is now open for the final i-POWER conference of 2020.

This will be i-UG’s second virtual conference, following on from the hugely successful virtual International i-POWER conference in June and hopefully, subject to prevailing UK government guidelines, i-UG will be able to host at least some part of the conference at a live venue, thus making it a hybrid – part live / part virtual conference.

For this reason, once again i-UG has reserved facilities at the Mount Hotel in Wolverhampton and is giving delegates the option to choose to attend

  • in person or
  • virtually

The choice is entirely up to you but in-person places will obviously be limited.
If plans for in-person sessions are cancelled, the conference will still go ahead on 10th December as a 100% virtual conference.

Speakers and topics confirmed for the conference so far are:

  • David Spurway – The current IBM i roadmap (including the latest news on the POWER9 G models and the up-coming POWER10 servers)
  • Carol Woodbury – Managing Security using SQL Services
  • Birgitta Hauser – Generating and consuming IFS Files and Web-Services with embedded SQL
  • Andy Youens – Containers on IBM i

More information on these sessions and details on additional sessions will be released over the next few weeks and updated on the i-UG web site.
