IBM was a gold level sponsor there, so IBM had its own booth at the expo! So many teachers came to meet us to learn about IBM Academic Initiative in general, also about our "Informix in a Box" program.
Li-Te Cheng, Jeff Gibbs, Jeff Brody, Sharon McFadden (not pictured), and I shared booth duty.
IBM also held a sponsor session on two topics:
- "Lessons From Teaching Teamwork with Rational Team Concert" (Jean-Michel Lemieux and Tim Klinger)
- "Software for a Cause - A Discussion About Student Projects for Organizations in Need" (Li-Te Cheng)
Overall, I think Informix has made a nice presence at the conference booth with many teachers and several students stopping by. Our Informix shirts and DVDs were so hot, we ran out of them in under than 2 hours! All we have left was this:
I hope to start seeing random people wearing Informix on Campus shirts soon :)
Keep an eye out for upcoming college trips!
