COMMON Focus 2008 – San Francisco, California – Oct 5 -8

David Vasta David Vasta Profile: David Vasta

COMMON Focus 2008, our annual workshop conference event, returns after a highly successful debut last year and will be held this year from October 5 – 8, 2008 in San Francisco, California.  This unique conference offering will feature three days of intense, focused education on leading-edge IBM i-related topics.

COMMON Focus is designed to be a smaller, more intimate event with a limited number of attendees – allowing them for more one-on-one interaction with the speakers and each other.  Attendees can attend only one workshop per day, providing them the opportunity to focus their educational needs on a specific topic each day and gain in-depth education of each topic.

This innovative conference event will offer 15 in-depth, all-day educational workshops – both in lab and lecture-style formats – in a wide range of topic areas.  The workshops planned for COMMON Focus 2008 will include the following:
