Along with all the well-deserved attention that COBOL received when it hit 50, the mainframe enjoyed when it hit the half-century and CICS will surely pick up when it hits the same landmark, another tech high water mark is about to be reached.
It’s the 60th anniversary of a US-based, internationally-focused event that provides a great platform for free-thinking and idea-sharing. No, not Woodstock – that was practically yesterday compared to this. Younger than Cher and more popular than the chair, SHARE remains the go-to event for tech pros looking to learn, network – and maybe influence industry thinking.
There really is nothing like it. The list of partners says plenty. Big Blue remains the Strategic Partner and other names provide the endorsement that potential attendees are looking for, including Oracle, BMC and these guys.
Meet the people
For these organizations, SHARE represents a great opportunity to get the user-driven perspective that drives the creation of problem-solving products that meet genuine business needs. For delegates, this is the place to get up to speed on the hottest enterprise IT topics and choose from more than 500 technical education sessions.
Technical sessions like this one. It’s our lunch and learn. So that’s free food and a taste of a streamlined mainframe application build process on the side. Ed Airey and Bob Schoppert give out the good stuff that could help you build, test and manage better mainframe applications, faster.
Micro Focus loves SHARE. It’s where we get to showcase our stuff to people who get it. It’s where we hear about their strategic challenges and discuss ways we can help them on their application modernization journey. Who knows what theme will be this year? We’re hearing a lot about the challenges of sourcing the right development skills – and we have good news on that score.
Meet Micro Focus!
We never miss SHARE and we’ll be there again this year. We’ll be bringing our roadshow along to the Orlando event on August 9–14 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Florida.
So come along and see us at Booth #307. You can’t miss the elephant. It’s a big year. It would be great to SHARE it with you.
