Heading to Wisconsin (WMCPA)Posted: November 11, 2008
I’m heading to Wisconsin to present at the Winsonsin Midrange Computer Professional Association (WMCPA)’s Fall Conference. I’ll be covering 3 presentations (Customizing the RSE, Debugging, and What’s New in RDi 7.1 and WDSC 7.0) and one open lab (Using RSE, Customizing RSE, and Working offline with projects).
These are standard presentations I have given before, but I get to use and discuss RDi 7.5 publicly for the first time :) WMMCPA has a good lineup of speakers for this event, so if you are in the Wisconsin area then come on over on Friday and learn something new, network, and say hi.
I met Jim Buck (president of WMCPA) for the first time this summer in Rochester at Summer School (education for College and University teachers / professors). This was part of the IBM Academic Initiative, a program for sharing knowledge, support, and software with colleges and universities. I was quite amazed by the number of shcools teaching IBM i and Power systems courses; ranging from RPG through to DB2 on IBM i. If you teach at a College or University (IBM i or otherwise) you should definitely get hooked up with this program.
