Virtual PUG Challenge 2020

Save the Date!

In light of ongoing developments of the pandemic, the EMEA PUG Challenge board has decided to move our 2020 EMEA PUG Challenge Conference to a fully online, virtual experience that will take place on 4th - 6th November 2020. We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience and we are excited that a virtual event makes it possible.

Networking is a cornerstone of our annual events and attendees will be able to partake in interactive and engaging experiences through a new dynamic virtual conference platform. The virtual system will include interactive exhibition features and plentiful opportunities for sponsorship exposure. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet speakers and sponsors in our virtual exhibition hall, all while connecting from the comfort and safety of their home or office.

The conference agenda will be spread out over three days of November 2020 to ensure that content is delivered in more digestible segments. Best of all, plenaries and breakout sessions will be easily accessible on-demand for conference attendees to view at their own convenience. Registration will open soon, check our emails and website for the latest updates.

We look forward to see you at our first Online Conference!

Why attend PUG Challenge?

Gus Bjorklund says:

The PUG Challenge/Exchange conference will soon be upon us. Have you signed up? If not, you will be missing a great opportunity to expand your knowledge.

Why you should be there:

  • 0) This is a technical conference exclusively focused on OpenEdge.
  • 1) There will be over 60 technical talks on a variety of topics, each performed by a very knowledgeable and experienced speaker. No marketing pablum.
  • 2) It will be fun.
  • 3) It will be useful.
  • 4) You will get to speak directly with the people who create the product and ask questions of them.
  • 5) It doesn't cost a lot.
  • 6) I will be there. :D

Rob Fitzpatrick adds:


There is no better value proposition in North America than PUG Challenge/Exchange for learning about all things OpenEdge. Whether you're an absolute beginner, an experienced user, or a multi-decade veteran, you'll learn new things at PUG Challenge. I say this from experience: my knowledge of OpenEdge is years ahead of where it otherwise would be thanks to attending this conference every year.

You get a deeper dive on product internals than is available in the docs and the KB. You get to mingle with your peers and hear their stories and challenges and benefit from their experience. You get a view of the platform and product roadmap and even the opportunity to influence its direction. You get both a mix of fundamental and advanced theory and a lot of practical tips and tricks you can bring back to your shop and implement. You get a well-organized schedule with 17 time slots so you can see a lot of great content. You get workshops with instructor-led hands-on training. And it's a ton of fun. Fantastic value.
