Recent world events regarding the pandemic of 2020 have emphasized the importance of digital readiness and modernizing core business applications now more than ever. But where to begin? Allow me to introduce the Micro Focus Virtual #DevDay 2020 series.
What is #DevDay?
#DevDay is our flagship event that unites COBOL and mainframe application developers, and this year it is more accessible than ever. #DevDay 2020 is now a virtual event and totally global, with everything online, all from the luxury of wherever you are–even in your pajamas if you’d like. While the delivery has changed, the content remains consistently outstanding. Every #DevDay technical workshop and live hands-on demo helps developers get real insights into addressing IT and industry demands.
What will I experience?
Proudly developer-focused, our agenda is for enterprises with the vision to transform their COBOL and mainframe-based host applications without upheaval. Highlights include:
– A look at the Micro Focus application modernization strategy.
– Visual COBOL 6.0 and Enterprise 6.0 demos and content.
– Developer-led sessions with tech tips and best practices.
– Our ever popular Ask the Experts discussion panel.
– Scheduled 1:1 meetings with Micro Focus speakers and executives on request.
There are three regional virtual events in North America, all delivering the community-driven experience our attendees enjoy every year. #DevDay US West is on August 19, #DevDay US East on August 25, and #DevDay Canada is September 1.
