While PUG Challenge is void of a lot of fancy marketing and loud crowd pumping music, there are many things the conference doesn't lack. Like, technical sessions, workshops, vendors, and networking. I mean everyone loves a great party, but the real reason for spending the time and money to go to PUG Challenge is to learn - learn how new developments in your Progress software can save your company time and money.
PUG Challenge was born of the desire to learn. Programmers not wanting to have to sift through the rubbish to get to the good stuff. For three full days, you can immerse yourself in Progress OpenEdge technology. There are over 50 technical break-out sessions planned plus 5 workshops, a vendor expo, a Partner track, commercial sessions, "Info Exchanges", an "Offsite Adventure" and endless opportunities to network with your peers and Progress engineers. Whew! (Sounds like a good kind of tired to me!) In just a little less than a month this will all be taking place with or without you.
Of course, with you is better. We'll have more people to network with and you'll have no regret.
