Appx Goes on the Road!
For some years now, ASI has been hosting tremendously successful APPX conferences in the USA. However, we realise that the cost and time involved in travelling to the USA has prevented many of our international resellers and customers from attending those conferences. Having previously hosted a conference in Latin America, we are now taking APPX on the road again and are delighted to announce that CWI will be hosting its first European APPX Conference later this year.
To answer all the questions that our resellers have been asking since we first mentioned the possibility of a European conference, the details are as follows:
When will it be held?
15 & 16 November, 2007.
NH Hotel Amsterdam Centre, Stadhouderskade 7, 1054ES Amsterdam
All APPX distributors, resellers and customers worldwide are welcome to attend.
Will CWI be offering any training?
Yes! We are offering 3 days of specialised training prior to the conference. Click here for full details.
Can we expect to see a representative from ASI at the conference?
Steve Frizzell, President of ASI, has very kindly agreed to be our guest speaker.
Will we be able to find out about the proposed content for future releases of APPX?
We anticipate that APPX 4.3 will have been released before November but, for those resellers and customers who haven't had a chance to review that release in any great detail by then, we will be presenting a 4.3 overview session on Thursday morning followed by a 4.4 overview by Steve Frizzell.
I'm not an APPX programmer - will there be anything of interest to me?
We will, of course, endeavour to cater for both nontechnical and technical attendees. To that end, Thursday afternoon will be broken into two 'tracks' - a technical track for programmers/system administrators and an end-user track. The programmer track will cover topics such as connecting to ODBC databases and performance tuning, using the new Appxdsvc/uappxd, strategies for migrating to GUI and Language Translation. The user track will cover topics such as self-service support, using the SQL report writer, ODBC/Excel and using Disposition Defaults.
I have developed a great application/suite of applications that I'd like to showcase to other resellers as well as customers - will I have an opportunity to do that?
Friday morning's first session will comprise reseller and customer presentations. A number of our resellers and their customers have already expressed an interest in presenting their applications but there are still some slots available for more speakers. If you would like the chance to show off your APPX applications, please email email@example.com with details. The only requirements are that the presentations be in English and be made available to us in electronic format after the conference so that we can make them available for download. In order for us to organise the time appropriately, the deadline for submission of presentation requests is 28 September.
Since this will be the first time for years that international resellers have been together, will CWI be hosting a reseller-only meeting?
On Friday afternoon we will hold a brief 'CWI Reseller only' meeting. It's not often we have so many of our resellers in one place, so this is a great opportunity to get together and discuss any issues you may have. We also plan to launch our new Reseller Portal which should help reduce the paperwork load and simplify sales and transaction reporting.
Are you organising any social activities?
We will be hosting two specific events: a) a welcome reception in the NH Hotel on the evening of Wednesday 14 November and b) a canal boat dinner cruise on the evening of Thursday 15 November. The conference agenda is, of course, subject to change. The latest information will always be available here.
