As performance was one of my weakest areas on IBM i, I attended all of Dawn’s sessions on system performance and monitoring at PowerUp 19. I learned so much that I was able to return to my job immediately and put into practice what I learned. I feel that the knowledge I gained more than paid for the cost of the conference! Plus, Dawn was very helpful and gave me some pointers about my specific situation. I can’t imagine doing my job now without the knowledge I gained.”
