Warpstock 2013 Registration Now Open

Archive

Warpstock is the annual conference for eComStation and OS/2 users. Warpstock 2013 will be held at the Drury Inn & Suites Airport, in Atlanta, Georgia October 4 - 6, 2013. Warpstock 2013 presenters are once again preparing a number of new sessions to help you get the most out of eComStation and OS/2, including some great news about enhancements and improvements, as well as some classic topics which never seem to get enough coverage.

This year's event is dedicated to our friend and past Warpstock Treasurer, Stan Sidlov, who passed away suddenly December 31, 2012. Stan's contributions to Warpstock and to the OS/2 and eComStation user community over his many years of service will be remembered and appreciated by all for some time to come.
