Hi again! A year ago, I traveled to the SIGCSE '10 conference in Milwaukee, WI to distribute information on our "Informix in a Box" program at the IBM Academic Initiative booth (read here) .
SIGCSE, which stands for "Special Interest Group in Computer Science Education", hosted another conference in Dallas on March 9-12. IBM was still its Gold level sponsor as last year. Again, Informix made a presence by distributing materials on the "Informix in a Box" program at the IBM Academic Initiative booth. This conference is very well visited with teachers from all over the world.
IBM also presented a session on "Can Students Really Develop Software Collaboratively" which talked about using Rational Team Concert (RTC), a collaborative tool aiding the teams to develop software together.
After visiting Milwaukee last year, Informix visited two colleges as a result of that. Let's hope Informix will visit more colleges as the result of the SIGCSE '11 conference in Dallas!
