For the first time Informix on Campus initiative traveled to the Washington D.C. area. At the Jenzabar Annual Meeting 2009 (JAM '09), conference attendees had a chance to hear about the IBM Academic Initiative (AI) and the Informix on Campus activities.
The initiative is focused towards teachers and faculty members who are responsible for developing Computer Science/Engineering curriculum at educational institutions and the IBM Academic Initiative was well received by those attendees. Thanks to fellow IBMers Debbie Bruchez and Mike Terrell for manning the IBM booth and for creating interest about the IBM AI presentation.In addition to the conference, Informix on Campus is working with IBM business partners to help reach out ot more educational institutions in the Washington D.C. area. We will keep up the momentum and continue reaching out to more campuses.
