    SpDUG forum 2023

    Community Event

    Sep 25 - 26, (UTC)
    Before we all go to enjoy a well-deserved vacation, the Spain DB2 User Group team would like to remind you that this year's edition of the SpDUG forum is already underway. We are working on a meeting of the Db2 user community in FACE-TO-FACE mode. And this time we have the collaboration of the Higher Technical School of Computer Systems Engineering of the Polytechnic University of Madrid . We have always considered the university environment as the prelude to the professional environment from which our user community is nourished, and therefore we are excited to be able to unite both environments around our annual meeting. The dates chosen for our annual meeting are: Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 September We are still coordinating and selecting the content of the sessions so that they are of the greatest interest and exposed, as usual, by first-line speakers. What we do want is that you book in your calendar the dates indicated and join us in our face-to-face meeting at the Higher Technical School of Computer Systems Engineering, South Campus of the UPM, C. de Alan Turing, s / n, 28031-Madrid
    Madrid, Spain
