Seminar information

Last Autumn saw the beginning of IONA's ongoing and highly successful seminar roadshow. The first seminar took place on October 4th when seventy enthusiastic delegates turned up at the ANA Hotel, San Francisco to hear the IONA perspective on CORBA. Within ten weeks almost nine hundred people from all over the US had attended this travelling seminar. A second date had taken place in San Francisco, together with eight more, in San Jose, Seattle, Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas and Birmingham. Split into two sessions, technical and managerial, the CORBA Seminar presented a thorough examination of the strategy, direction and features of the OMG's work on CORBA.

The series then continued with two dates in London and one in Sydney. At this stage, the topic base of the seminars was broadened and the name changed to 'CORBA and World Objects'. These new seminars covered everything from an introduction to CORBA technology to linking desktop clients and CORBA servers using Visual Basic, OCXs and Java. They too, turned out to be a great success receiving an outstanding response from all the audiences.

CORBA and World Objects - Topics

Morning Session

Afternoon Session

In order to specifically address the varying needs of attendees, taking into consideration the differences in prior knowledge and individual interest, the day is split into two sessions. Anyone interested in attending has the choice of attending either the entire seminar or just one of the two sessions.

As the market leader in CORBA technology, IONA provides a unique insight into the practical application of CORBA in a variety of contexts, giving real-life examples of projects and successful implementations.
