We’ve just finished three days in Sandusky, Ohio at this years MQTC Conference, the best, and only dedicated conference for IBM MQ Technical Education.
It was great to see so much interest in MQ at the conference, with numbers up from last years attendance, and more vendors in the sponsors pavilion than in previous years. Paul and Morag both gave technical presentions as we mentioned in an earlier blog post.
MQGem was a Gold Sponsor of the conference, and so also had a couple of vendor presentation sessions which were presented by Paul; the first on Monday, about our new product, MQEDIT, a live parsing MQ message editor; and the second on Wednesday, about our other three products, MQSCX, MO71 and QLOAD.
MQGem also had a booth in the vendor pavillion on Monday and Tuesday evening, where we gave personalised demos of any of the products to attendees who came by, gave out product brochures and free mouse mats, and collected entries for our prize draw to win an MQEDIT 1-year Enterprise licence. We were very pleased with the interest in our products shown by the attendees that visited the booth, and Paul spent a lot of time demonstrating the many features of all our products.
It was great to catch up with many friends and customers that we hadn’t met face-to-face for a while.
Yet again, the Kalahari Resort has done this conference proud, and huge thanks go to Capitalware for putting on a great three days.
