Jeff Kubler of Kubler Consulting
presented a session
on Suprtool at this year's HPWorld
conference in Chicago,
"Super Suprtool Solutions":
Suprtool is one of the most prevalant database extraction tools in the MPE world.
Virtually every application, from legacy applications to the new e-commerce
applications, will have some use for Suprtool. A clear understanding of its use
and capabilities is a key concept in any developer's technical bag of tricks. In addition,
there are a number of great solutions to some of the trickiest problems with
database or file extraction, and updating that will be covered in the presentation
of the paper should help any developer increase productivity.

P.S. Comment from a past attendee: "Prior to receiving Suprtool training
from Jeff Kubler, I had to rely upon our
programming staff to find data and build test data environments. This was
time consuming because I often had to wait for their availability. The
Suprtool training has been invaluable because now I can perform these tasks
myself. This has made me much more efficient and effective. I would
recommend this Suprtool training to anyone who needs to access data and
needs to become quickly familiar with IMAGE and the Suprtool." -

Performance Training Seminar in Florida
Can you tweak and tune your HP
computer for maximum performance, and improve your company's bottom line by
attending one seminar?
Read Craig Solomon's
report on the conference, then study Neil Armstrong's paper: "Living With
400 I-Os Per Second".
The answer is a resounding YES! But only if you attend the Performance Training
Seminar in Florida (February 13-16, 2001). To get into the "meaty" topic of
performance, a smaller, friendlier, and more intimate setting delivers much more
value, and we'd like to let you in on our secret performance weapon...
