Calling All PowerBuilder Developers:

Plan on attending a PowerBuilder Developer Day on
July 30th 2003 in the Sybase mid-town Manhattan office.
You will get to learn about the new
features of PowerBuilder 9, Appeon 2.5 for PowerBuilder,
and become part of the NY/NJ/CT PowerBuilder User Group.

Rex Geissler, Sybase PowerBuilder Expert and Appeon 2.5 for PowerBuilder
Product Evangelist will discuss how the Appeon utility converts your
PowerBuilder applications to the Web in a matter of hours or days without
investing large amounts of money and time in a major re-architecture and
development effort. Appeon 2.5 for PowerBuilder transforms rich
data-intensive, client/server PowerBuilder applications into rich
browser-based n-tier, web-deployed production applications while
retaining the full functionality and productive user interface
of the original application.

Rex graduated Summa Cum Laude, worked for IBM six years,
became a PowerBuilder consultant for seven years at
Walt Disney Studios and other companies, and was hired by Sybase
five years ago. Rex has been a principal
architect of the Appeon product over the past 18 months.

John Strano, Sybase PowerBuilder Evangelist
will discuss the strategic direction of PowerBuilder and give a
detailed presentation and demonstration of the
hottest new features in the PowerBuilder 9 release!
