Welcome to XUG!
eXtyles User Group Meeting (XUG)
Online Conference, October 20 and 21, 2020
The 16th Annual eXtyles User Group Meeting (XUG 2020) was held online in the afternoon of October 20 and the morning of October 21. You can still register to access video of the event!
It seems fitting that XUG 2020 coincided with the 20th anniversary of eXtyles, so that we could share news, challenges, and ideas with even more of our customers in this online space.
The one-day meeting was spread across two half-day blocks. See the XUG agenda below for links to the slide presentations, or register to access on-demand video of the sessions.
