Speaking at Inform 2016 (no seriously, I am !)

Picture this – John Head and I are hanging out by the pool (working) in Las Vegas, and up turns Tony Holder. What could possibly go wrong………

Well as it turn out nothing went wrong and in fact something very cool started.

Tony was on his way to Australia (as you do) and he had been asked to present by the Inform 2016 organizers. Problem was he was short on material. Having seen John and I talk about Application Modernization and the Cloud at InterConnect, Tony came up with the idea of re-using our presentation (with our permission) and I would turn up and do the demos. Unfortunately I will not be in Australia for another 9 months so this will have to be a remote demo. But I am still speaking. Cool !!

Then – to make it more unbelievable and awesome – JH came up with the genius idea of roping Mat Newman and combing John’s and Mat’s Connect talk with John and mMarky’s InterConnect presentation.

This is going to be truly a unique experience !

For my part there are a cool demo of how we took a notes client application and took it through the modernization process from notes client, to responsible web app, to integration with IBM SmartCloud social and IBM Docs enabled. This is a genuine story of Application Modernization and the cloud.

Come and see Tony, Mat and Me (mostly seeing them and listening to me)
