Session/Agenda               Registration

One full day Tuesday October 16, 2001, of intensive AS/400 Technical training, at a great price, right in your own backyard.

We have picked a very convenient location.
The Danbury Sheraton (same location as last year, they just changed the hotel from the Hilton to the Sheraton) located in Danbury CT, which is right off I-84 Exit 2 eastbound and Exit 2A westbound (18 Old Ridgebury Rd, Danbury CT).

In 1969 people thought that 2001 would be a space Odyssey, for those in the IT industry, we now know that 2001 is a Technical Odyssey. Last year we survived the millennium, but this year we are starting a new journey. Do you have the skills that you need for your journey? Where are you with Web technologies, whatís new with RPG, Notes, Domino, Clustering, where is SQL taking us, Logical Partitioning of machines (LPAR), Trends & Directions of the iSeries/400, the name iSeries itself. The answers and directions will be found at the FASUG conference on Tuesday October 16th. In one day, you could be exposed to many new topics, as well as learn about existing iSeries/400 technology that you must know.

Whether you are new to the AS/400-iSeries, or even an expert, there is no better place to start your iSeries/400 journey. Perhaps you find it difficult to send your staff away or even yourself for a few days at a time? Then FASUGís ninth annual iSeries/400 Application Development Day, "2001 a FASUG Technical Odyssey", is for you. There are 6 concurrent tracks throughout the day. Your hardest decision may be which sessions to attend.

SPACE IS LIMITED, DONíT DELAY OR YOU WILL MISS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY!

As many of us in the iSeries/400 environment have learned, not only is change inevitable, but also it is happening at a much quicker rate. There are new features and functions being added to the iSeries/400 at an astounding rate. How can you continue to perform the functions of your existing job, yet at the same time learn about these new iSeries/400 features and functions?

You will learn about: WebSphere, integration with RPG and the web Domino, RPG IV, Notes, LPAR, Java, Java Server Pages, RPG Tricks of the trade, VA RPG, System Management, Availability, and much more. These are topics that you and your company canít afford to miss.

Your biggest decision is how many people should you bring, because you will not want to miss a single session. So bring the entire staff, and let them pick their sessions so that you can have someone at each session. Start your iSeries Technical Odyssey on Tuesday October 16 th with FASUG. Your investment in time will pay for itself many times over with all the interesting and informative topics being presented.

T here are many conferences that are available to educate iSeries/400 professionals. We have taken some of the best topics presented at COMMON by some of the best speakers, added a vendor exhibit and "show & tell" area, wrapped this all into a six-track one-day format that is within easy commuting distance, all at a very affordable price. With todayís constraints of time, resources, and dollars, where else can you get this much iSeries/400 training for so few dollars.
