I am pleased to announce that Mike Ruane will be over from the USA for the week commencing 28th September 2015 and this will be a very special week for anyone working with OpenInsight in the EMEA region.
The week is still in the planning stage at the moment and I will be writing to my OpenInsight developers in the region shortly with more details. However, we plan to hold our usual RUG meeting on the Tuesday morning (29th September 2015) and this will be followed by a very special OpenInsight 10 training session over the next couple of days (afternoon of the 29th and then all day on the 30th September and 1st October).
There was a mountain of information provided at the recent Revelation World Conference in Texas and I hope to share just a small overview of this information during the training sessions on offer.
The plan is therefore to hold the usual RUG meeting during the Tuesday morning, running up to lunchtime. This will be a free to attend session and it will provide everyone with an opportunity to hear about how Revelation are doing, plans for the future, etc. I also hope that Mike will provide us with a very brief overview of the OpenInsight 10 release.
Everyone will be welcome to have lunch with us at the conference centre and then we will change from the usual RUG schedule to begin a more in depth look at OpenInsight 10. This afternoon session and the next two days (Wednesday and Thursday) will be given over to getting deeper into the forthcoming OpenInsight 10 release. Both Mike and Carl will be on hand to take you through the massive changes to the API, the Presentation Layer and the Universal Driver, as well as Performance Enhancements, new System Admin Tools, etc. etc. In addition, Mike will discuss the options for the conversion process and how you can have your data tables optimised as part of the process – getting to OpenInsight 10 is not a simple one click upgrade!!!
There will be a charge for the two and half day training session, but based on what I learned at the conference earlier this year, it will be well worth the expense and time. If you are a professional OpenInsight developer, a professional MultiValue developer or you head up an OI or MV based development team, this is a three day event that you cannot afford to miss.
Granted, you could dive into the beta software or the full release when it is available, but the changes are wide and varied. For example, Carl alone spoke for over four hours at the conference, covering the Form Designer and Presentation Layer changes. Mike took the best part of three hours to run through the OpenInsight 10 overview and the conversion process and there were over 20 hours of facts, features, statistics, enhancements and more.
I therefore highly recommend that you consider this training session to make sure that you and your business is best prepared for the new version and that you can get the most from it for yourself, your business and more importantly your clients.
This is the most significant release since Revelation took OpenInsight into the 32-bit world. Use this one time opportunity to get ahead of the game and be better prepared for this ground breaking OpenInsight release.
To register your interest in either the RUG or the training session (or both), please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I am expecting the RUG places to fill very quickly, so please don’t delay.
