Barcelona, Spain and San Antonio, TX, May 6th, 2013. ASNA recently held its 14th ASNApalooza Developer Conference in Barcelona, Spain. Held at the beautiful Hoteles Catalonia, around the corner from the famous La Rambla and its living statues, ASNApalooza was host to more than 65 ASNA developers and business partners on April 15th and 16th.

“We had a very successful ASNApalooza this year,” says Carlos Valero, CEO of ASNA. “We were very proud to host our 14th ASNA conference here in Barcelona. It was great to see so many existing customers and meet our many new ones. We had more than 65 attendees from Austria, England, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, and the United States.”

ASNApalooza 2013 featured two days of sessions, given by ASNA’s Roger Pence and Eduardo Ross from the US and Jonathan Greenstreet from the UK. Roland Schumacher, CEO of SISA Studio Informatica SA in Switzerland, gave a great keynote presentation to attendees about his company’s success using ASNA Wings and ASNA Monarch to migrate its IBM i legacy RPG application to .NET. Said attendee Björn Hilmarsson from Iceland, “It’s always so great to be at Palooza. We are always eager to get home and to try out the new techniques and ideas we learn!”

The theme for this year’s ASNApalooza was, “RPG has never been this powerful.” Valero says, “Our presentations really proved this point with our attendees this year. We had many great sessions this year and also discussed how to get additional value out of existing RPG applications with ASNA Wings and ASNA Monarch, how to create new applications with ASNA Visual RPG, and showed how ASNA Mobile RPG enables RPG programmers to create great mobile applications with ILE RPG.”

No ASNApalooza would be complete without a little fun and this year’s Palooza didn’t disappoint. On the first evening, ASNA attendees were treated to a fun evening of wine tasting and fine dining in Barcelona. Says attendee Robert Eggert, from the Netherlands, “I’m very happy with the presentations, especially the interesting, funny way of presenting. Great job!”

Next up is ASNApalooza #15 in San Antonio, Texas in 2014. Watch for upcoming information on that ASNApalooza soon.
