Just want to inform you about two changes regarding Informix Zone and planetIDS:
Informix - My View
The day started with a Q&A with IBM excutives: Alys Passarelli, Inhi Cho Suh and Rob Thomas. There were a number of good questions and it was an opportunity for the excutives to state their commitment to Informix and describe many of the efforts in progress.
Once again, a good mix of sessions on subjects from customer case studies, database administration, security, best practices, and use of tools such as Eclipse.
The day ended at 4:30 after the delivery of 25 sessions.
This was a great conference with lots of good information and fantatic networking.
At the 2010 IIUG Informix conference Nick Geib from IBM and I did a technical session on python and Informix. One of the examples we gave of how an Informix DBA can leverage python to make his or her life easier was a dbdelete utility, a simple python script that can be used to delete a large amount of data without causing a long transaction, excessive locks and can run some onstats during the delete to determine if we should stop deleting for a little while because it is impacting performance.
After all the good news we have heard so far from IBM about the renewed Informix strategy, The Informix Zone would be interested in your valuable opinion on this important issue.

Thank you !
Just a quick word:
The International Informix Users' Group Conference for 2010 is over. The members of the IIUG Board of Directors are winding down and catching our breath. I'm posting my first ever Blog posting to this my new blog. It's weird.

Well, all good things must come to an end, and the 2010 IIUG conference is no exception.
Apologize for not dropping a note yesterday but was busy attending sessions, meeting customers and soaking the great IIUG hospitality. The conference is wrapping up w/ the last round of sessions underway. The only thing left is the Customer Advisory Council scheduled for Thursday. Several of us were sad to see the conference come to an end. It was a quick 3 days and just felt like time flew. New Informix friends and partnership was developed over the past 3 days. The networking is one of the greatest advantages to come to this conference and we get to meet some die hard Informix fans.
