UK Power i user group i-UG has announced the dates of its biggest conference of the year.
International i-Power 2015 will take place at the Wyboston Lakes Executive Centre (pictured) in Wyboston, Bedfordshire, on September 9 and 10. PowerWire is media sponsor.
Before that, on Tuesday May 19, i-UG will convene at major Power Systems distributor Arrow ECS’s HQ in London’s City. The London event will be a reprise of the Common Europe-affiliated group’s packed out event in Rochdale in February.
Speakers include IBM’s David Spurway on upgrades, Binary’s Andrew Ireland and James Cole on WebQuery, and Go Print’s Kevin Askew on the 3D printing revolution. PowerWire‘s very own Steve Bradshaw will also be appearing to talk about Power i performance monitoring. You can find out more and register for the event here.
Apart from offering his monthly words of technical wisdom to our readers, Bradshaw doubles up as i-UG’s technical director. The user group’s biggest get-together of the year will also feature a couple more fellow PowerWire authors.
While the full details of the conference’s second day have yet to be finalised, workshops on the first will be held by Glenn Robinson on VIOS and Pete Samways on PHP. Steve himself will hold sessions on IBM i Navigator.
Other star speakers confirmed for the first day include the ever-entertaining Paul Tuohy, who will be explaining the awesomeness of SQL, plus a whole day’s worth of insight from Big Blue’s uber-expert Alison Butterill, the corporation’s IBM i Product Offering Manager.
We’ll publish the details of International i-Power’s full line-up as soon as we get them. In the meantime, check out the conference’s website. For i-UG members, the workshop day on September 9 costs £150 and it’s £50 to attend the sessions on September 10. Members can attend both for £200.
For non-members, it’s £200 for the workshops, £100 for the next day or £300 for both.
