IDUG EMEA 2010 Vienna - A personal thanks (and a request for algorithm).
Esteemed IDUG EMEA 2010 attendees

First THANK YOU all for your attendance at IDUG EMEA 2010 ! I hope you
enjoyed the many presentations offered , the news about DB2 10 (book,
GA,more details....), as well as Hands-on labs, seminars, free
certifications (BTW Congratulations ! Many of you passed exams, we had a
very high number of new certified folks !) and the overview of products
offered by vendor in our expo area.

Another big 'THANKS' to all DB2 collegues and experts who attended THREAD
'A' - DB2 10 for z/OS, BTW the thread I (tried to) managed. It was not an
easy task, we always had rooms full of attendees and we worked hard to let
people find a seat or attend that particular session, it was mandatory
for us to do everything for them. Hope you enjoyed italian chocolats,
Baci Perugina should have been a nice 'medicine' during sessions.......
and during SIG01, the Special Interest Group in thread A. Thank you all so
much for the very good evaluations received for that SIG. I only tried to
do something useful for all of us, but most of credit goes to the great
and absolutely brilliant speakers, I was only a less than useless piece of
'furniture' in the room :-).

Thanks to all DB2- L listers I met in Vienna and who didn't try to beat me
:-). It was a great pleasure for me to associate a face to a name,
finally. All recognized DB2-L as a great source for informations about
DB2, so keep to 'advertise' it among others collegues, some of them didn't
know anything about our list.

A big 'Thanks ! ' to people who applied as moderator for thread A:

Frank Petersen
Meir Zohar
Ulf Heinrich
Roy Boxwell
Bayard Tysor
Steve Thomas
Namik Hrle
Zeljen Stanic

A special recognition and 'Thanks !' to Tor Roger Loken, who moderated
three speakers.

So IDUG EMEA 2010 is over. They're planning next Conference, in Prague, so
stay tuned. DB2 10 now is GA and first users are migrating to this version
so next year they'll have beta testers and first users experience. If
you're thinking to apply as volunteer, do it, it's a great experience and
something unique in a DB2 expert's life. If you don't volunteer another
easy task is to apply as moderator, you really do something useful for the
Conference with a minimum effort (and attendig sessions, of course).

So with the hope we did at least a respectable work, again, *thank you
all*.

PS: Is anybody out there who know some algorithm to predict the number of
people in a room (Time Series, Markov chains, Bayesian probability....)
???? ;-))

Hi Max!

Thanks for the thanks - It was, as always, a pleasure to be there and I
finally got the beer for Terry!
As to the algorythm its very simple:

N = Number of people
C = Number of chairs
T = Time of the presentation (In UTC of course)
A = What is the presentation About (Reduced from ppt or doc file into a
hash value)lamb
B = Number of beers consumed at the party the night before divided by the
number of lamb chops and weird desserts eaten

then the formula is simply:

The room is never big enough!

See you in Prague!

Hi Roy !

Yes probably you're right about algorithm but neverthless I'd like to see
if we can have an idea about 'attendees migration' from one room to
another :-)

Probably, for many reasons, I won't be in Prague (so expect someone else's
advertising about IDUG 2011), but from what I saw from plans I can say
it'll be even more bettere than Vienna, from presentations to hotels
choices to logistic. So stay tuned & ready for Prague, they are working
for another great Conference !

Thank you again and Kind Regards
