Happy Friday, CA Plex CA 2E Community! In case you missed it, we hosted the first office hours session for this community earlier this week. You can read the transcript here: CA 2E Office Hours Transcript (Feb. 18)


What are office hours? They are online chat sessions where you can get answers to your product questions from a team of experts. We ask that you not talk about open support tickets, but most anything else is fair game. We'll have representatives from the product management, support, education and other groups available to answer your questions.


We had such a great response to the first set of office hours that we've decided to make it a monthly session -- on the third Wednesday of every month. And, we'll alternate the focus between CA Plex and CA 2E from month to month. The next three sessions have been scheduled and published here in the community:


I hope that you'll join myself Dan Short, Simon_Cockayne, Cindy Michaels and the rest of the team during an upcoming office hours session!


7th CA 2E/Plex Worldwide Developer Conference

With a strong initial response to our Call for Ideas, we’d like to see more insightful ideas submitted straight from Our Community.

The following provides a sneak peek into what we'll be covering in some of the workshops and sessions:

  • Leveraging DevOps and .Net
  • The Latest Features in CA 2E r8.7: SQL Happiness!
  • Proven Innovations in Modernizing 2E apps
  • How to Create RESTful API's from Plex and 2E
  • Customer presentations on best practices.
  • Product Roadmaps & Backlog grooming

  We know you don't want to miss the 7th Developer Conference.                

So, do you want to save $150 including your Conference and Uber pass?

And don't forget Thursday, June 4th: Small Group Deep Dives, Community Hackathon for CA Products, including some you haven't played with yet.

CA Community customers, partners, and industry influencers from around the world come together at this conference for intense learning, networking and insights to transform their businesses.

We invite you to share your depth of knowledge, product expertise, and lessons learned-both good and bad. We are always on the lookout for diverse agenda ideas focused on technical and business topics of interest to our Community.

Attendees want to discuss real time experiences with Databases, Web, Mobile, Cloud, API’s and more, because these projects improve your business while you promote your professional reputation.

Applications are open to our customers, partners, and industry experts. Be a part of CA 2E/Plex History!

If you have a Session Idea you would like to present/discuss, please send an email to today.

P.s. Your idea does not have to be world shattering. You don’t have to invent a time machine. You’d be surprised what you take for granted, that would be incredibly helpful for other folks to know.
