The Profound Logic team attends a lot of IBM i user groups throughout the year. And one of the questions we get asked often is, "When will Profound host their own user conference?"
The answer: Very Soon!
In fact, on November 3-4, 2016 in Columbus, OH, we're hosting our very first user conference: PLUS 2016. PLUS (Profound Logic User Seminar, if you hadn't guessed), is the ultimate opportunity for Profound Logic customers and partners to get the most from our products. You can purchase tickets to PLUS here.
But if you still need a good reason to attend PLUS, you're in luck: Here's five of them! (Honestly, there are many more, but I wanted to keep it short. :-) )
1. Add Value to Your Investment
We know that purchasing software for your business is an investment - not only in dollars, but in the time it takes to learn and master that software. By attending PLUS, you'll add significant value to your Profound Logic software investment and ensure ROI. The seminar is made up of in-depth product sessions and hands-on labs, led by our product developers and experts. You'll return to your business armed with the knowledge you need to successfully turbocharge your modernization efforts!
2. Learn from the Experts
Here at Profound, we're extremely proud of the IBM i experts on our team, and want to share their knowledge with you! The sessions and labs at PLUS will be led by none other than these IBM i evangelists and Profound product specialists, including Scott Klement, Brian May, Alex Roytman, and Liam Allan. These experts will be available throughout the sessions, labs, and networking events to answer your questions and give you exclusive access to their wealth of expertise.

3. Get Hands-On Experience
In addition to a schedule full of deep-dive educational sessions, you'll have the opportunity to attend hands-on labs throughout the seminar. All of our labs will be led by Profound Logic developers and experts, including Scott and Brian, on topics ranging from GUI themes to mobile. Lab hosts will provide guided instruction with handouts you can take home with you. This is the ultimate opportunity to "learn by doing" with the complete suite of Profound Logic products.

4. Network with Customers and Partners
Not only will you get the chance to learn from our experts, PLUS 2016 will be a great opportunity to meet other Profound Logic customers and partners, and share your experience. Our Customer and Partner Roundtable events are a great opportunity to share your modernization experience, offer tips and advice to other users, and offer feedback to us that will help Profound offer even better solutions. Our Thursday night dinner at Barney's Brewery will be a lot of fun, and a chance to mingle with the experts, customers, and partners over good food and brews. Additionally, you'll have the chance to show off your accomplishments in our Customer Spotlight presentation!
5. Prepare for the Future
Last, but not least, PLUS 2016 will prepare you for the future of IBM i modernization. We will demonstrate how new solutions - like Profound.js and Agile Development - are faster, safer, and lower-footprint options for legacy business application modernization. Additionally, you'll learn how new Profound Logic solutions will make it easier to hire developers for the IBM i platform, and can open your IBM i business applications to Cloud, IoT, and Watson APIs.
Here's one more bonus reason to attend:
