Notes 8.5 Upgrade Workshop in June

The upgrade workshop that we hosted at the of May was a huge success.  We ended up having to turn people away.  As the result, due to popular demand, so to speak, we are hosting another workshop at the end of June.

On June 24th and 25th we will host a Notes/Domino 8.5 upgrade workshop in Schaumburg at PSC.  Detailed information on the workshop and registration is on the PSC website.  So, if you didn’t get a chance to make it to the first workshop, hope we’ll see you on the 24th.

Notes 8.5 upgrade workshop

On Wednesday and Thursday of this week we [PSC] and IBM hosted a Notes 8.5 upgrade workshop. The workshop was held at IBM Innovation Center downtown Chicago and it was a great event. Thank you everyone who found 2 days in their busy schedules to join us for the workshop. The event was “sold out”. We had no empty seats in the room and unfortunately we had to turn away a few people who tried to register at the last moment. Not to worry, we are planning to hold more workshops during the summer. Please come to the PSC site for event information and registration.

The workshop focused on showcasing the new and exciting features of Notes and Domino 8.5: things like DAOS, ID Vault, Shared Logon, XPages. The agenda is a good mix of presentations and hands-on labs, so not only did the attendees get to listen about the new features, they got to feel and touch them, practice setting them up and using them.

All in all, a great event. I’m looking forward to hosting a few more of these during the summer.

Currently, we’re looking at hosting 1 workshop in Schaumburg at the PSC office on June 24 – 25.

In addition, we’re planning to host another workshop downtown Chicago at the IBM center just before MWLUG on August 25 – 26.  Seating will be limited again, so please stay tuned for registration announcements.

IBM and PSC to host a Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 Upgrade Workshop

I am happy to announce that on May 27th PSC and IBM will co-host a Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 Upgrade Workshop.  This is a 2-day absolutely free event to be held at the IBM Innovation Center downtown Chicago.  We’ll even cater continental breakfast and lunch.  All the particulars are listed below.  To register for this event you need to come to the PSC website.  Space is limited and we already have a number of people registered for the event.  So, if you are interested in attending, register soon.

Introduction
Presentations and Hands-on Lab Exercises for a 1 or 2 day Proof of Technology, with materials focusing on Notes® End User, Domino® Administration, and Domino Application Development enhancements in version 8.5.  (Please indicate which day or days you will attend in the Special Instructions box when you register.)
Objective
The Notes & Domino 8.5 Upgrade is intended to provide the customer with an in-depth examination of the new capabilities of version 8.5 of the products.  For existing customers, this exploration will help them assess the additional value and potential impact to their existing environment.  For new customers, this exploration will not only give them a hands-on experience with a product new to them but it will also reinforce our advantages over the competition, such as the power of applications.  At the conclusion of the Proof of Technology, the customer will leave with an excitement about the business problems this new version can help solve.
