Agenda and Proof of Technologies

As in previous years, we have booked several Proof of Technology sessions on Tuesday 26th June 2018 and Wednesday 27th June 2018 at IBM Hursley for our core technologies.

Proof of Technology (PoT) workshops provide a hands-on experience of the selected IBM technology. Participants will execute labs to learn about the capability provided by the IBM technology.

The lectures and labs are designed to start from initial concepts, but quickly move on to deeper domain capabilities.

Please note that these events have limited numbers of seats, so please do book early.
You can attend any combination of the three days, and as such each registration is dealt with separately:
Proof of Technology (PoT) - Day 1 – Tuesday, 26th June (one of):
      • IBM API Connect
      • IBM Cloud Private
Proof of Technology (PoT) - Day 2 – Wednesday, 27th June (one of):
      • IBM DataPower
      • IBM Integration Bus


Please note that PoT registrations will be closed approximately a week before the sessions will be held. A confirmation email will be sent at this time.

The WebSphere Integration UK User Group is an independent body made up of a governing committee of WebSphere Integration users.

Our aim is to offer a forum for users to meet and learn from one another's experience as well as to meet and learn from the WebSphere Integration product experts. 

These events are free, and a buffet lunch and beverages will be available during the day.
