Posted by Profound Logic on Apr 20, 2015 11:25:04 AM

COMMON 2015 Conference - April 25-28, Anaheim, CA Who's ready for COMMON 2015? We are!

We look forward to the Annual Meeting and Exposition all year long. We love meeting
IBM i developers from all over the world, and every year we're excited to see new faces. COMMON is also a great opportunity for us to do something we love: educating IBM i users! This year, Profound Logic employees will be giving over 15 sessions and labs throughout the conference! That doesn't include the 1/2 day seminar we're hosting with Arcad Software on April 25.

Our sessions run a wide gamut of topics that include Web 2.0 development, RPG Open Access, Mobile development, Web services, and more. And in addition to those sessions, we're also offering something new: "mini-sessions" at our booth (#202) in the expo hall on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. If you have some time between sessions or after lunch, swing by and see a live demo of our web and mobile development tools, and learn all about the benefits of enterprise modernization.

Here's the complete list of sessions by the Profound Logic Team at COMMON 2015. We hope to see you there - make sure to stop by and introduce yourself!
