"...definitely a worthwhile investment."
Ing. Pedro Fernando Pardo R., Software y Servicios Informáticos Ltda
"This being my first IBE event I did not know what to expect, but it did exceed expectation as compared to other in-depth trainings I’ve attended. ... I absolutely would recommend the HK software team!"
Dustin Waling, BuilderMT''
"I wanted to thank you for the past 2 days training. It was been a pleasure meeting you and really really educational training. It was a lot of material covered and I look forward we can work together soon."
Eduardo Rocha, Avatar Solutions
"...very informative. Customer projects that I have implemented ... can now be extended and optimized even further on the basis of the newly acquired knowledge.
"... I can develop much faster in the database and integrate these improvements in customer projects and also in our ERP software.
"Holger Klemt also constantly offers tips, advice and guidance .. so that you can avoid a variety of "beginner mistakes" from the outset, which would otherwise make life very difficult later.
"Participation in IBExpert workshops is firmly fixed in my schedule every 1-2 years."

Michael Clemens, Line Software GmbH
"Three days pure Firebird: Firebird internals, Firebird replication, Firebird configuration, repairing Firebird, optimizing Firebird, basically: all things Firebird. It's not possible to pack more Firebird theory and practice into three days!
"The very next day, following the recommendations, we set about configuring a new PC as a Firebird server, initially without any software optimization: a LIKE search across all data by customer name previously took about 15 seconds, with the new server 2 seconds. Price of the previous server: 3,500 €, price of the new FB-Server PC: 1,000 €.
"We will need a few months to digest it all, and implement other parts of our newly gained knowledge. Thanks for the video recordings; they help enormously!"

Chris Hölzemann, Jürgen Medart, Ingenieurbüro Medart
""We would like to thank you for an excellent workshop. We've really learnt a lot about Firebird and IBExpert...
"PS: This was by far the best workshop I've ever participated in!" "

Jakob Töws,
Tele-Trac Kommunikations GmbH
