Highlights: Informix 12.10.xC3 is available!
Welcome to the International Informix Users Group (IIUG) Insider! Designed for IIUG members and Informix user group leaders, this publication contains timely and relevant information for the IBM Informix community.
The IIUG Conference is less than a month away. If you haven't registered yet do it as soon as possible. There are so many reasons to attend this event; unmatched content, networking with colleagues, meeting IBM executives and developers.
You all know these advantages. This is why so many of you attended this conference during the years. But let me add one more reason. You are all Informix users and enthusiasts. Attending the conference is a demonstration of the power for Informix. We need it now more than ever.
So if you are hesitating, don't just come by yourself but convince your friends to do the same. On March 21 I decided to run at the Jerusalem Marathon. I did not do the full Marathon only the 10 KM (6.2 Miles) track. Like working with Informix it is not always easy but it is a lot of fun and I would like to keep doing it.
Informix 12.10.xC3 is available!

There is now an Informix group on LinkedIn. The group is called "Informix Supporter", so anyone loving Informix can join, from current IBM employees, former Informix employees, to users. It will also be a good occasion to get in touch with others or long-time-no-seen friends. If you fancy showing the Informix logo on your profile, join.
