IDUG DB2 Technical Conference 2012

The time is drawing near for this year’s North American IDUGDB2 Technical Conference . This year’s event is being held in Denver, CO the week of May 14-18, 2012. The IDUG conference planning committee has brewed up a wonderful agenda of educational sessions, presentations, and courses. Check ‘em all out online here. Whether you are a DBA, a developer, a or a systems programmer there are a plethora of learning opportunities. And there are sessions that run the gamut from DB2 for z/OS to DB2 LUW to data warehousing to Big Data to new version information and more! You can even try your hand at certification at the conference.

Even more importantly, IDUG offers a great chance to build and strengthen your DB2 network. You will meet everyone who is anyone at the IDUG conference. You can network with IBMers, consultants, and peers throughout the week at technical networking sessions and the products and services expo. And don’t forget the Dine Around where you can sign up to eat with your favorite DB2 experts.

One of my favorite stops every year is the IDUG book store, where you can browse the latest publications on DB2 and related technologies. I’m super excited about this year’s book store because the latest edition of my book, DB2 Developer’s Guide, covering through DB2 V10 will be available at the book store this year.

There is truly no other place where you can cram so much DB2 stuff into a week. So if you rely on DB2 in your professional life, the IDUGDB2 Technical Conference is the place to be.
