SUG-TX May 25, 2010 Meeting

The Sybase Users’ Group of Texas will hold their next meeting on Tuesday, May 25, 2010.  There are several items to talk about this month: the recently announced acquisition of Sybase by SAP and the near and long term implications for users of Sybase technology; and a follow up to the recent “Developer Days Houston” event, with a migration of a PFC application from PowerBuilder v11.5 to v12 Dot NET.  Jeff Wayt will walk attendees through the migration steps to show what works and what doesn’t, perhaps spotting problems to resolve or avoid.  There will be plenty of time for Q&A and the meeting will conclude with a short planning discussion to determine the topics for the remainder of 2010.

Agenda:

4:00pm – 4:30pm      Introduction, Welcome, Q&A
4:30pm – 5:00pm      Discussion: SAP And Sybase: A Marriage Made In Heaven Or Hell?  Topics will include SAP’s motivation for acquiring Sybase, the financial deal points, and the likely impact on Sybase’s management, businesses, and products.
5:00pm – 5:15pm      Break
5:15pm – 5:45pm     Migration of a PFC Application from PowerBuilder v11.5 to v12 Dot NET
