Comments from attendees

"The web lab was great, a lot good information. I would of liked more time for the labs and/or worked with a partner." - Margaret
"Thank you for allowing me to attend your event. ...I am not on the iSeries development team. However my supervisor asked me to attend to see what was available as I will be assisting our AS400 crew whenever possible with the transition from “green-screen” to a GUI user interface.

Even as an outsider I found the presentation to be very informative. Your speaker did a wonderful job of presenting the material, and the lab exercises were easy to follow and understand. However I was surprised by the somewhat lukewarm reception by the iSeries attendees. Could it be that they are so ingrained in the status-quo that they resist the movement to web-based delivery?" - Brian
"...I enjoyed the session very much. I would have enjoyed more time on the hands on part. Hopefully, we can finish working through the demos on our own system." - Barbara
"Excellent Meeting. We didn't just hear about the features, we were able to try them out for ourselves and see what could be done. More was accomplished in the 4 hours of lecture/labs than could ever be done by reading magazine articles and white papers, or by the famous trial-n-error techniques. Fantastic return for $25." - Paul
