To secure Warpstock's future, a small group of dedicated OS/2 advocates decided
to incorporate the event. With Warpstock 98 attracting close to 400 visitors to
Chicago the next year, they more than succeeded in creating a worthy successor for
the first edition. Some attendees came over from Europe and Australia to participate
in what turned out to be a genuine OS/2 fest. Warpstock had become bigger, but it
hadn't lost its unique and friendly atmosphere of fun and excitement.
The Warpstock 99 program will certainly appeal to every visitor. For the first
time in the history of the event, IBM has been extremely cooperative and is planning
for several presentations and training sessions on Java and OS/2. Sundial Systems
and Serenity Systems, two longtime Warpstock supporters, will be presenting some
of the most exciting software that has ever been available for OS/2. Of course,
many more vendors will be in Atlanta to present their new products. In addition
to the exhibitors, we are scheduling a variety of lectures and presentations on
various topics. Some of the most knowledgeable people in their field will be presenting
on topics such as internet, networking, programming and more general user topics.
Keynote speaker for the event will be Peter Coffee, technology editor for PC Week.
Finally, we would like to invite everyone to the Warpstock Saturday night Social
Event, aka as "The Party". It's the best way to finally meet OS/2 enthusiasts
from all over the world, made possible through the generous support of our sponsors
VOICE and Mensys.
See you in Atlanta!
