A SPECIAL conference organised by Asia Computer Weekly is presenting an exhibition devoted entirely to Windows software application at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Thursday, April 22. Windows Showcase '93 is the first presentation to be held in Hongkong where all the leading products available on the Windows platform will be introduced and exhibited together at one venue. This all-day showcase will provide the serious Windows user with information on the key Windows products and how the user can best benefit from them. All the key players, Borland, Microsoft, Software Publishing Corporation (Harvard Graphics), Lotus and WordPerfect, will be at the event. STAFF and students at the City Polytechnic of Hongkong now have fast-track access to Sun workstations, following thePolytechnic's decision to sign an agreement with Sun Microsystems. The agreement, which was signed last week, is the first of its kind in Asia. It offers any City Polytechnic department or affiliated institution a fast, flexible way to order new workstations. They can now be installed in a matter of days, since departments can order in-house. Under the campus dealer agreement, the City Polytechnic can offer Sun computers, software, training and support through the computer centre to departments and to individual staff members or students. The City Polytechnic, which already has more than 100 systems installed in multiple departments, is now working with Sun to teach licensed training courses, such as system administration and Sun Operating System courses, on campus.
