Hello from Sillian, I am Ruth, Otto´s daughter. I am happy that so many of you come to the HARBOUR 2017 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. This will be great.
If you plan to come from California to Milan a great route to Sillian, where the conference takes place, would be this:

You can do this in 2 days - stopping at LAKE GARDA which ist one of the most beautiful places in Italy. Please ask me about your journeys...I can provide you with all the information and help you to organise the trip.

Kind regards from Sillian

My tentative plan is to fly into Milan/Malpensa, head up through Switzerland through Zurich, then Munich and Salzburg, into Austria, check out Vienna, then perhaps over to Budapest, down through Slovenia to Trieste and back to Milan. Does anybody remember the conference Ashton Tate put on in San Diego back around 1996? They were trying to promote Visual Objects but of course no one was interested in that. Nonetheless the conference was instrumental in helping me decide to use Fivewin to migrate from DoS to Windows.

Hello everyone;

I'm really looking forward to participating on this Summit. It is a great opportunity that no-one should miss. AMOF, I think we should do this every year. I guarantee everyone you will not be disappointed and it will be well worth the time and expense. Thank you very much to Otto, Ruth and Antonio for coming up with this idea.

I will be bringing with me free developer license codes for ADS server Linux and Windows for a maximum of 5 users. For now here is the short list of topics we will be talking about:

Introductions to and understanding ADS and why ADS
Local-Remote-AIS servers
Advantage Tools
ADT vs DBF
Full Text Search
Understanding Data Dictionaries
Encryption and security
Defining data constraints and referencial integrity
Transactions
SQL
Triggers
Stored Procedures
Notifications
Backup and Restore
Replication

I understand we probably won't have enough time to speak in depth about all these subjects. I will be more than happy to stay an extra day(s) after the seminar to expand, speak, help more with ADS with anyone who wants to.

Dear friends,

we will organize a shuttle from MUNICH airport to SILLIAN on Sunday, 2nd of July, at some time in the afternoon if there are enough people who are interested.
The alternative is an international train. We will calculate the costs and communicate them.

Please tell me if you want to join.

Kind regards Ruth

"A warm welcome to the xHARBOUR community. As the Mayor of Sillian I am very proud and honored that you have chosen our beautiful region for the first xHARBOUR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. I wish you all the best for the planning process.

I have heard that the participants come from many different parts of the world, some from very far away. To all of you: have a nice journey. We are proud and happy to have you here at Sillian in July.
The writing of computer programs is not just a technical task, but also highly creative. We hope that you get inspired by the stunning nature of our beloved valley in the garden of the Dolomites. Maybe these positive surroundings can inspire and create interesting ways of collaboration and exchange among so many experienced professionals.

Looking forward to July, when all of you we will be here with us, I hope that this first xHARBOUR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE will turn out to be a great success."
