MWLUG 2017, "Moving Collaboration Forward", The New is Old and the Old is New

MWLUG 2017 mark the ninth annual ICS user group conference that we as a community are coming together to network and learn for each other.  It will be held at the beautiful Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, VA near Washington DC from August 8 - 10, 2017. Like always we are planning many activities at MWLUG.

Unlike previous years, MWLUG 2017 will be held from Tuesday through Thursday rather than the previous years where the conference was held from Wednesday until Friday.  This was one of the feedback that we receive last year.

Our ICS community is in a state of transition as the market is changing and new technologies are introduced not just by IBM but from open source environment and other technology vendors.  No one vendor can silo themselves within their own technology.  Users are looking for the best breed.  IBM has answered this call with new solutions derived from open source technology like Docker, MongoDB, and Node.

However as the same time, these new technologies also remaking existing our ICS technologies like Domino to become innovative solutions for organizations and allow them to improve and grow.

In tune with the MWLUG 2017 theme "Moving Collaboration Forward", we are planning sessions this year to include new IBM technologies like:

  • IBM Pink Connections
  • Watson Workspace
in addition to existing IBM technologies:
  • IBM Cloud
  • IBM Connections
  • IBM Domino
  • IBM Sametime
  • IBM Traveler
  • IBM Verse
and open source technologies that are enhancing and are the key to the future success of  both existing and newer ICS solutions:
  • Angular
  • Docker
  • Graph
  • Node
  • Linux
  • Loopback
  • MongoDB
  • MVC
  • ReactJS
  • REST API
  • Web Security
(HINT: MY WISH LIST)
