What is it?

i-Community's annual Study Tour to the IBM Rochester Laboratories - this year, for the first time, to be held remotely.

Sessions from key speakers, scheduled on the afternoons of 13 and 14 October, will span the full range of IBM i infrastructure and development topics.

The Tour is covered by the i-Community Confidential Disclosure Agreement for maximum benefit to attendees.

The Tour is offered to all UK i-Community members.

The 2021 Virtual Tour

We are delighted to announce that we will be running the i-Community Rochester Study Tour in October. Due to restrictions with Covid relating to travel, we have taken the decision to run the Study Tour as a Virtual Event. This will also allow i-Community members who have not previously travelled to Rochester the chance to experience the event virtually.

The virtual study tour will take place on 13th & 14th October between 2pm and 4pm. The agenda for the first day is focused around IBM i infrastructure. The second day will be more focused around software.
