i-UG (UK) conference welcomes SiD


For the first time in many years SiD (System i Developer) is returning to the UK to deliver university classes at i-UG’s International i-Power conference that will take place this June in Milton Keynes. SiD university classes are for developers who use IBM i or Power systems and will be presented by the renowned Susan Gantner, Jon Paris and Paul Tuohy.

Mike Ryan, Chairman of i-UG, quoted ‘Having SiD university classes in our conference agenda really closes the circle for us in delivering a conference that contains topics for everybody who works on or with IBM i and Power Systems. SiD adds the final piece to our aim of attracting developers to our annual flagship conference, these university classes normally take place in the US and we are pleased to be able to offer these to developers in the UK.  The SiD classes will run alongside our Hands-on Workshops which take place on day-1 and Jon, Susan and Paul will also be presenting ‘developer’ themed sessions on day-2 in our multi-session agenda.

Attending these university classes or our hands-on workshops represent real value for money, whether you are an i-UG member or not, I don’t think people can find ‘hands on training’ in the UK at the rate we are charging, just one of the benefits of being a User Group member’.

‘i-UG is very aware that Security is a major worry for most IT professions and their companies and, as such, we are pleased to announce that we have arranged for Carol Woodbury, an IMB i security specialist, to deliver a full day workshop on this subject.  I feel that our 2018 conference is the best yet for quality and subject matter’.

2018 is a special year for IBM i with it being the 30th anniversary of the system and the 25th for the User Group. To celebrate, attendees, speakers and sponsors of the conference are invited to a free Gala Dinner, including entertainment, during the first evening of the conference.

We are also pleased to announce that regular contributors to, Andy Youens and Steve Bradshaw, are both presenting sessions/workshops.

Registration opened last week and as seats are limited it would be advised not to leave booking your participation to the last minute. To guarantee your participation visit the website now.
