IIUG Conference 2012 – Very Short Recap

This years conference, according to organizers was the biggest ever! Don’t know if the reason was moving to San Diego, but it was certainly nice to visit a new place. The sessions were great, keynotes as well, got to know some new guys, to make some deals, and the opportunity to speak to Jerry Keesee.

A bit of local-patriotism. Croatia being a relatively small country, got two very nice acknowledgments this year. My very own professor Mirta Baranović got the IIUG Directors Award (together with Scott Lashley). Also, our Adria IUG president, Hrvoje Zokovic is third time IBM Information Management Champion. Congratulations to all! And also congratulations to Andrew Ford for wining the Fastest DBA Contest. What a win that was – Andrew made the test engine commiting three times more transactions than the second-ranked contestant!

There’s another interesting thing worth pointing out. I learned about emphas.is. It is a crowdfunding site for visual journalism run by Jan Husar. There are lot of cool projects seeking funds by this site, so I recommend checking it out. Oh yes, it is powered by Informix, of course.
