Session/Agenda                   Registration

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

Our industry is in a state of change. Where does that leave your skill set? Improve your existing skills by learning about some of the foundations or learn about new ways to expand your skills. Either way, you will find it here. If you are a manager, what are the skill sets of your employees, and wouldnít you like to expand them? The iSeries is maturing, the economy is struggling, and business demands and pressures are greater than ever before. Todayís I.T. professionals have more demands on them than at any other time. Yet, when do we find the time to meet these demands and invest in ourselves or our employees? Mark your calendar for Tuesday Nov 16, for the 12th annual FASUG All Day Technical Conference.

The best speakers in the iSeries industry will be descending upon Danbury on November 16th. You do not want to miss this educational opportunity. We have all new sessions and speakers this year to provide you with the necessary skills to master some of the new requirements of our industry, while still providing sessions on topics you are currently using.

Look over the grid and see the variety of sessions that are offered. Can you afford to stay at work, and let technology pass you by? Need some help with fundamental RPG? We have some good solid basic RPG foundation classes. Where are you with Web technologies? We have classes on using Webfacing, Websphere, Java Server Pages, JDBC, and .NET. There are classes on Advanced RPG topics, new Tools for Programmers, GUI Editors for the iSeries programmers, and donít forget plenty of topics on Database. For the operation and technical people, we have Systems Management topics like LPAR, Independent ASPs, and Performance. Basically everything you need to know about the iSeries. These sessions will help you get the most out of your investiment in the iSeries. The answers will be found at the FASUG conference on Tuesday November 16st. In one day, you can be exposed to many new topics, as well as learn about existing iSeries/400 technology that you must know. Mark your calendars now.

Whether you are new to the iSeries, or even an expert, there is no better place to enhance your iSeries educational journey. Perhaps you find it difficult to send your staff away or even yourself for a few days at a time? Then FASUGís Twelfth annual iSeries Application Development Day is for you. There are 5 concurrent tracks throughout the day. Your hardest decision may be which sessions to attend.


There are new features and functions being added to the iSeries 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 features and functions? Invest in yourself by attending the Twelfth annual FASUG iSeries Application Development Day. You will learn about: WebSphere, integration with RPG and the Web, RPG IV, Database, LPAR, Advanced RPG topics, Systems Management, and much more. These are topics that you and your company canít afford to miss.

With so many interesting and informative topics to choose from, why not bring the entire staff so you can have someone attend every session. Your investment will pay for itself many times over. Start your iSeries Technical journey on Tuesday Novembet 16th with FASUG.

There 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 five-track one-day format that is within easy commuting distance, all at a very affordable price. With todayís constraints of time, resources, and budgets, where else can you get this much iSeries/400 training for so few dollars?
