The 17th IBUC is over. It was great to see old and new faces alike, and especially to hear about everything you've done with Blaise.
We are now working really hard on dotting the i's and crossing the t's for the upcoming release of Blaise 5.2 on October 31st.
Some things you can expect in this new release are:
- a production-ready version of Manipula
- a production-ready version of CATI
- token-based security
- uniform layout
IBUC is coming. Fast.
We have lots of interesting presentations for you to enjoy as well as plenty opportunities to mingle and share your experience with other Blaise-users.
For your convenience we have put up the final program. You can either find it on the IBUC-site, or by clicking here.
You can also download it for personal use, by clicking here.
We hope to see you all next week! We're looking forward to it!
Since many of you are here for the conference anyway, we thought it might be a good idea to offer our Blaise 5 Layout Training in the week following the IBUC, so you can combine the two if so desired. You do not need to attend the IBUC to join the course.
Blaise 5 Layout Training is a three-day training course for Blaise developers, specifically, how to use the new tools in Blaise 5 to specify and apply layout.
Statistics Netherlands has a team of trainers who have years of experience using and teaching Blaise in Europe and around the world. The course combines lectures and demonstrations with practical, hands-on exercises that students work through at their own pace.
If you are coming to the IBUC - and even if you're not, consider coming to our pre-conference day!
Whether you are new to it, already working with it, but looking for some practical tips, or if you are a real geek when it comes to Blaise 5, there is something for everyone!
The focus of these sessions is knowledge transfer, not workshops/courses. They will take place on Monday, October 3rd, 2016 in the same location as the conference (New Babylon, The Hague, The Netherlands).
