Virtual Education Overcomes the Time, Cost and Travel Barrier

Posted on November 17, 2015 by Bill Langston

We regularly hear customers say they need and want ongoing education but can’t leave their office to attend a conference, user group meeting, or training class. This problem might be due to job duties, budget, or family obligations. We certainly understand.

Fortunately, if you’re an IBM i operator, programmer/analyst, or administrator, there is a FREE event coming soon that can provide some of the education you want—right at your desk. It’s the COMMON Virtual Conference & Expo on December 15, 2015. We hope you will click on the link above, take a look at the agenda, and register to attend. We’ll explain. 

What’s COMMON?
COMMON is an international IBM user group that organizes educational events online and around the world. Although the COMMON user group has been around for decades, we know many IBM i customers are not COMMON members, are unaware of COMMON, or have never attended a COMMON sponsored event. If that’s you, take note: this virtual conference is open to everyone.  You do not need to join COMMON. There is no fee to attend, but you do need to register.

What’s a Virtual Conference?
Think Webinar. The virtual conference consists of a full day of top experts presenting sessions in a Webinar format that you can view at your desk. You can pick topics that interest you and move in and out of the virtual conference throughout the day.

What If I’m Busy on December 15?
COMMON will keep the sessions available on demand for several weeks afterwards, so you can go back and watch them again or catch topics you missed. The key is to register now so that you’ll receive the login instructions and have the opportunity to view all the sessions you want, even if you can’t attend on December 15.

NGS is one of the sponsors of the COMMON Virtual Conference & Expo. We’ll be giving a session on migration alternatives for IBM Query/400 users, and some NGS staff members will be available to “chat” with you in the virtual expo.
