Less then two months to Warpstock
August 12, 2002 by Luc Van Bogaert
There's just 30 days until the Early Bird Registration Ends. Register now for Warpstock 2002 before the deadline! We've posted most of our speaker schedule on line and we're scouring Austin for a great place to hang on Saturday night. Visit our eStore http://bamart.com/Warpstockinc to use your Visa/Mastercard to make a secure purchase without the extra fees that Paypal or Billpoint can charge.
If you look at our schedule, http://www.warpstock.org/2002/presentations.html , you'll see that this year's Warpstock has some surprises in store for you. What will "The Miracle" actually be? A video DVD player? Extended service for the OS/2 user? A cell phone that runs OS/2 rather than Windows or Palm OS? OS/2's Open Sourcing by IBM? Full compatibility with MS Office XP? OS/2 running on a 64-bit processor? Whatever "The Miracle" is, Warpstock attendees will be the first to know. If you don't believe in Miracles, then you should be attending our other sessions where you will be able to see the latest demonstrations of NetLabs and Innotek's products for OS/2, and other great products for network and enterprise management from Golden Code and Starfire. Use eCS? Kim and Bob are going to be telling us all about what's in store for the next release of eCS.
Warpstock is the best place to find out what is going on with OS/2 and to meet and talk with all the people you have only met online. If you have not attended Warpstock in the past, this is the year you should make every effort to attend.
Warpstock 2002 will be held the weekend of October 5th and 6th, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin Texas. Austin is the home of the IBM OS/2 development group, so many of the people that work on and support
OS/2 will be in attendance and giving presentations this year.
A special conference rate of $129 for single/double room night is available to those who use the "Warpstock 2002" event code when making reservations. This rate is good for up to 3 days prior and 3 days after the event weekend. The Warpstock room block is only guaranteed until September 13th though, so please don't delay. You can make reservations by calling 1-800-HOTELS-1 (1-800-228-9290) or direct at 1-512-343-2620.
Early registration for both days will be $70. This price is valid until 4 weeks prior to the event. After September 7th, registration will be $95 for the two day conference. A one day price of $70 is also available. But by registering early you get both Warp packed days for the price of a one day admission.
You can register online at <http://bamart.com/Warpstockinc>
or as in the past you can mail in your check (or even cheque) or moneyorder payable to "Warpstock, Inc" at
