The Houston AS/400` User Group, provides AS/400 educational information and related presentations, to its members on a monthly basis approximately 11 times per year.
- Just what is this user group? It's
an independent organization (supported, but not sponsored, by IBM).
We have by-laws, a bank account, and officers (volunteers from among
the membership). We meet monthly except during December, to discuss
topics related to the AS/400. Some are technical, some are
management related. Recent meetings have centered around Java,
Internet, and WebSphere. IBM presents new product information as
soon as it is available. Presenters may be from IBM, other vendors,
or members of the group.
- Who can come to the meetings?
Anyone interested in the iSeries or AS/400. You do not have to own
an iSeries or AS/400 to become a member; users of other systems,
consultants, etc., are all welcome. (Our mailing list is not
- When are the meetings held? The
meetings are usually held the third Thursday of the month. We try to
alternate between day & evening meetings. Due to speaker schedules,
holidays, and other conflicts, it is not always possible to predict
the meeting date.
There may be one or two presentations, with a very brief business meeting stuck in there somewhere. Most important, there is always plenty of time to mingle with other folks in the iSeries-AS/400 community.
- Where are the meetings held? We
like to move around the Houston metropolitan area and have different
iSeries-AS/400 users host the meetings, so that no one always has a
long way to drive. However, the majority of the meetings are held
at IBM's Riverway location.
- HOW MUCH?
- How much does it
