In the 2nd week of May (May 10-14, 2010) the IDUG North America conference is taking place in Tampa, Florida. What I like about the IDUG conference is that it is organized from the user/customer angle with users presenting and sharing their experience. It's a great way to network, especially when you are new to the DB2 landscape (Oracle anyone? Check the schedule for sessions tailored to those having worked with Oracle or having both systems in-house).
What I usually do when I am at such an event is to make use of free certifications. Become a certified DB2 administrator at the conference.
Want to learn more about DB2 pureScale, DB2 10 (the next version of DB2 for z/OS), IBM Smart Analytics System or IBM Smart Analytics Optimizer? The IDUG conference is the place to be.
Want to have some nice "gifts" for your kids or your spouse? Visit the expo area and collect goodies.
Have you booked your trip already...?
