That’s a Wrap!




Thank you for everyone who attended this year’s Micro Focus Developer Conference! We hope you enjoyed the jam-packed days of customer testimonials, technical demos, COBOL discussions and industry speakers as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing you again in February 2013 for the next Micro Focus conference!

In our blog post on day one of the conference, we highlighted the top-level discussion of COBOL’s everlasting value and role in carrying business forward. In day two, attendees got an in-depth, technical look at how this is done. Attendees dove in with sessions such as “Visual COBOL: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from the Field” delivered by Micro Focus customer Idea Integration, along with “Functional Testing of COBOL Applications with SilkTest” delivered by Archie Roboostoff, our Borland Solutions Portfolio Director.

Catch a glimpse of the excitement with Steve Biondi, Micro Focus President of North America, in the below video.
