Informix on Campus in Brazil


Last week, from 05/30/2011 to 06/03/2011, was performed in Campo Grande, MS, Brazil, the first Informix course via IBM On Campus project, named Introduction to Informix.

Students, and Alexandre Marini / Miguel Carbone

The event was realized on SGI - Superintendência de Gestão da Informação - from SEFAZ-MS, with 24 students participating, together with UFMS - Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso do Sul, one of our local Universities.

Course topics covered the following subjects:

a. OPPENING ON ACADEMIC PROJECT (INFORMIX ON CAMPUS)
b. INTRODUCTION TO INFORMIX
c. VIRTUALIZATION AND INFORMIX
d. INFORMIX ARCHITECTURE
e. DATABASE OBJECTS, DESIGN DATABASE, SQL
f. TRIGGERS / STORED PROCEDURES LANGUAGE
g. INDEXING
h. CONCORRENCY AND LOCKING

Despite our few machines limitation (in lab) to the course, general avaliation was extremely good, since students that would never heard about Informix, considered it a good choice to their database studies area, as one more technology to be aplied on labor market, with several case studies presented in classes, including great companies and industrial utilizations around the world, in their several sectors, and also market comparisons.
Mr Alexandre Marini thought the students, with a great help from Mr Miguel Carbone (thanks a lot, Miguel)!

We appreciate every student participation, and we´d like to congratulate: Mr Pradeep Natarajan, Mss Veronica Gomes (they really helped in every possible ways - time was short), and also send special thanks to Vanessa (Alexandre Marini´s wife), who kindly made some cakes to the students celebrate the last day.

The cakes - students really loved it!

We hope this is the first Brazilian course, from many others that will come. It´s always a great opportunity to spread our excellent product to students who will be working in a couple of years on our local markets.

Best regards!
