PowerBuilder 11.5 Launch Party

The PowerBuilder 11.0 launch party last year was pretty good. A lot better (IMHO) than the special event. Well, they've having a PowerBuilder 11.5 launch party this year, so mark your calendar.

Wednesday, August 6th - 7:00 – 9:00 pm
House of Blues Restaurant, Crossroads Room

Participate in the PowerBuilder Gear Challenge. Bring your oldest piece of PowerBuilder gear and show your PowerBuilder colors. We have prizes for folks with older PowerBuilder gear. And yes, PowerSoft items are allowed! Start rummaging your office and closet for the PowerBuilder 11.5 Launch Party and the PowerBuilder Gear Challenge.

Affinity Pins are back…

If you signed up for conference sessions, you will be receiving a product affinity pin based on the sessions you chose. Pin selections are:

* Information Anywhere Suite
* PowerBuilder
* PowerDesigner
* Sybase IQ
* Replication Server
* WorkSpace

Hope they're bigger than last years. You had to get so close to people that it was uncomfortable in order to read their pins last year.

TechWave Schedule Planner is online…

Very nice. This year the presenter information is available! You can even use it as search criteria!!


And once again you can import your schedule into Microsoft Outlook. Word to the wise though, wait until just before you leave for TechWave to do that. Last year I did it early, and they changed the schedule afterward (particularly the locations). I kept showing up at the wrong locations.

TechWave Forum is back again…

Hopefully it will be more used/helpful this year. They've certainly spiffed up the interface. Looks like it's Flash based.
