We had a great experience with this year’s IOD. We met plenty of new and familiar faces, had some great conversations, and learned a lot about what DB2 users want and need. IOD is always a good opportunity for us to get “back to the roots”. We’ve had an excellent experience with Craig, who interviewed some top-notch DB2 experts this week (see video posts below). If you’re a DB2 professional, I’d highly recommend watching these videos. You’ll hear a variety of thoughts from some of the world’s best DB2 consultants, centered around hot topics in the DB2 world. Take a few minutes to watch them – you’ll be glad you did.
We’d like to thank Craig Mullins for working with us this year at IOD. He’s a first-class DB2’er, and it’s always a pleasure to work with him.
We’d also like to thank our guest speakers for spending some time with us. Thank you Cristian Molaro, Klaas Brant, Sheryl Larsen, Suresh Sane, and Dave Beulke. Check out the videos below in this blog to hear their thoughts on current hot DB2 topics!
