Learn from Everyone’s Sessions at IDUG

Another IDUG conference is coming up, and the agenda of presentations looks great.  The IDUG conference planning Committee always does a great job, and the agenda shows many extra educational sessions.

This year’s IDUG conference addresses the latest DB2 releases and business issues with many great presentations for application developers, DBAs, and managers wanting to learn the latest techniques for solving the tough business issues.  There are some great sessions talking about DB2 for z/OS and the new Version 12, the new DB2 for LUW Version 11 , IDAA Analytics, DB2 Cloud, and Spark.

I’m also looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.  Like me, some friends have been attending and presenting at IDUG for many years, and their IDUG sessions help provide in-depth business and technology perspectives.

Hope to see you at IDUG next week and at one of sessions or panel discussions.
