Who can believe that the summer has passed so quickly and we are now just one month away from the IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Sydney, Australia! I can’t wait to see you all in “the land down under,” and replenish my DB2 knowledge with IDUG’s incredible technical program.
As always, IDUG will be abuzz throughout August with several opportunities for sharpening your DB2 skills. This month’s DB2 Tech Channel Tech Talk, Use DB2 with BLU Acceleration for SAP, presented by Guersad Kuesuek and hosted by Rick Swagerman, will provide a deep dive into an important DB2 topic.

And of course the whole family is here with me; my wife, the four kids and my grandchild Naia.
