Last March, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the “Women in IT” conference that was held in Delavan, WI. This event preceded the Spring Technical Conference for the Wisconsin Midrange Computer Professional Association. I found myself among a large and diverse group of women who were either retired from the IT field, currently working in IT, or just starting out in their careers. The icing on the cake was that we all have a background on IBM i! Also in attendance were college students from Gateway Technical College, and students from local high schools.

Recently I attended the IBM Power Systems Technical Symposium in Melbourne Australia, followed by a similar conference the next week in Auckland New Zealand. This was my first trip to the southern hemisphere and what a great trip it was! In addition to speaking at the conferences and talking with IBM i clients, I took some vacation and was a tourist for a few days.

When I review the long list of blogs that have been published, only a small number have content that’s dated – most of the blogs are as applicable as when they were first written.
