We are very pleased to confirm the details of the UK and Ireland Progress User Group Spring Conference which is kindly being hosted once again at the QAD offices.
We have lined up a fantastic program of technical sessions with some very well respected speakers from the OpenEdge community. We also have two workshops planned.
The overall theme for the day is OpenEdge Modernisation, looking at some of the technical aspects, in particular REST, Web handlers, Kendo UI Builder, and diagnostic tools for performance improvements.
The workshops are on Kendo UI Builder, and another on performance improvements. Additionally, we have two case study sessions looking at experiences and tools used in modernisation projects.
Speakers include Peter Judge of Progress, Paul Koufalis of White Star Software and Marko Rüterbories of ConsultingWerk, as well as technical experts from IAP and Pace IT.
We will be hosting a networking evening on Tuesday 4th April to extend the networking opportunities with speakers and fellow members before the conference. This will take place at the Park Regis Hotel, 158 Broad Street, Birmingham B15 1DT from 19:30 to 23:00.
Accommodation details will be available shortly.
It promises to be a very informative day, with plenty of content for everyone.
Please note that the conference is now fully booked.
