1996'S ONLY SUN CONFERENCE TO BE HELD IN BOSTON
Speakers from Sun Microsystems and other industry leaders
will be featured at the Sun User Group's East Coast
Conference and Exhibition, June 24 & 25, in Boston, Massachusetts.
BROOKLINE, MA -- On June 24 and 25, the Sun User Group will open the
doors to SUG East, the only Sun trade show of 1996 and the first East
Coast Sun show in three years. This conference and exhibition will be
held at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston, Massachusetts and is
expected to draw over 2,500 attendees from around the world. With the
demise of SunWorld, SUG East is now the only major conference and
trade-show dedicated to Sun and Solaris products and services.
SUG East will feature a trade show with over 100 exhibitors and a
technical conference with tracks on Java, the Internet, System
Administration and Security. This year's conference topic is "Sun in
the Heterogeneous Environment". "With the introduction of Sun's new
Java programming environment, this topic is more important than ever,"
says Alexander Newman, Executive Director of the Sun User Group.
"System administrators, users, and developers need to become much more
aware of the differences and similarities between the various computer
architectures." The SUG EAST conference will run both days of the show
and will address the important issues and difficulties of developing,
managing, and maintaining a mixed-architecture environment through a
variety of talks by some of the leading experts in the field.
Featured speakers at the conference include Robert Diamond, Senior
Security Consultant for Sun Microsystems; Peter Galvin, chief scientist
for Corporate Technologies, Security columnist for SunWorld On-line
magazine, and author of "Operating System Concepts"; and J.A. Cross,
Java consultant and contributing author to Que Publishing's "Special
Edition: Using Java".
"It's the variety of speakers, from throughout the high-tech industry
and beyond, that makes SUG's technical conferences such critical
successes." said Charles Sumner, the Sun User Group's Director of
Marketing. The SUG East Technical Conference with keep up this
tradition by featuring 25 talks by respected speakers over the two days
of the show. Each day will feature two tracks of classes; Monday, June
24, will spotlight Java and System Administration, and Tuesday, June
25, will concentrate on Security and the Internet.
The SUG EAST trade show will feature over 100 exhibitors of application
software, backup and storage devices, client/server products,
connectivity products, email, network security, software development
tools, terminals, training services and other products and services of
interest to the Sun/SPARC and Java community. Demand for exhibitor
space is quite high as many exhibitors were caught by surprise at the
cancelation of SunWorld.
In addition to featuring the latest developments in Sun, Solaris and
Java technology, the SUG East Exhibition will have several free
services available to attendees on the showfloor, including an Internet
Academy, a UNIX Job Fair, and SUG's Theater of the Amazing.
The Internet Academy will present a series of free introductory
half-hour lectures from SUG's highly-skilled instructors designed to
help trade show attendees get a taste of some of the hottest new
technology. Some of the free 'mini-classes' to be taught include:
Java; The Worldwide Web; Internet Security; and Using Information
Services. The UNIX Job Fair is a terrific opportunity for those
looking for a new position, or anyone who wants to learn more about the
UNIX job market. Staffed by professional recruiters, attendees can
learn about hundreds of jobs currently available and improve their
resume and job-hunting skills. SUG's Theater of the Amazing is a
showcase where attendees can gain valuable in-depth information and see
special demonstrations on the highlighted products of this year's show.
