If you usually check the Informix blogs, you've probably notice that IBM will present a virtual event on February 25th. This event is about Information Management, not necessarily focused on a specific product. Accordingly to the announcements you'll have the opportunity to chat with several specialists. You can see more information on Guy Bowerman's blog. The event registration can be found here.
Meanwhile, a colleague from France, Laurent Valenza is involved in the proof of technology that will take place in Paris on March 12. It will include hands on tutorials, and presentations about migration, MACH 11 and Open Admin tool. Please check the detailed agenda and the confirmation email at IIUG's page: http://www.iiug.org/news/announcements/pot_12mar2009.php
I had the pleasure to meet Laurent in 2008 and I'm sure his contribution will make this event worthwhile.
To finalize this post, a reference to a document Eric Hebert posted on his Informix Zone site. It's a translation to English of an interview of Jerry Keesee to Czech ComputerWord.
