Rocket MultiValue University 2015: the first MultiValue event to include Both U2 and D3

ForJohnsBlogSince I know most of you who use the family of Rocket D3 products, I’d like to say hello and to extend my personal invitation, to you, to attend Rocket MultiValue University (MVU).

We’re only about six weeks away from kicking off MVU, October 5-8 at Harrah’s in Las Vegas. As a member of the Rocket team, I’m really excited to be part of this event for the first time. In the past, this event was called U2 University; now, Rocket MultiValue University encompasses both the Rocket D3 and Rocket U2 products, as well as other Rocket technologies that work well with MultiValue.

MVU is an opportunity for you to attend four days of training on Rocket D3 products and participate in hands-on labs. Plus, if you’re interested in learning how to build Web Services, Interactive Dashboards & Reports, and Mobile Applications utilizing your Rocket D3 database, MVU allows you to meet with the team that develops and supports these products.

Since joining Rocket Software, I’ve seen a significant investment in the core D3 database technology, along with the introduction of technologies that advance the capabilities of Rocket D3 in other areas such as Business Intelligence, Application Lifecycle Management, and Mobile Application Development. As an educational event, MVU is the only place where you can gain exposure to all of these exciting technologies.

We’re proud to be offering you–for the first time ever–the opportunity take our new D3 certification exam for D3 UNIX Administrators free of charge ($100 value) with your MVU registration! Join us on Monday, October 5, for a Certification Preparation class, then take the exam at a time you choose during normal session hours.
