Summer (vacation) is over: Build up skills - DB2 Aktuell conference

My Summer vacation is over which basically has been reduced work hours, no blogging, and switching off the phone for some days. Most of us are back to work now and the questions is and was: Do we have enough skills to tackle the challenges ahead (or do we have the right team skills)?

Personally, I used some of the slow season to read and also "play" with technology. Attending conferences or classes to hear about new things and to discuss them with fellow technology workers is on my list for this Fall. Is it on yours? For those in Germany I would like to point to the DB2 Aktuell conference held in Bremen middle/end of September. It gives you latest news on DB2 for z/OS and DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, discussions with others, including DB2 developers, and DB2 tutorials and certifications. And you will have a chance to meet me, count that as added value... ;-)
