September has arrived, and with it, the IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Sydney, Australia! To all who have registered to attend – I will see you there! Personally, I’m most excited for the opportunity to meet up with the AU Conference Planning Committee, as I know that they have worked very hard and diligently to put an excellent IDUG experience together for you to enjoy. With the substantial lineup of DB2 speakers, experts and industry leaders, this DB2 Tech Conference is positioned to be one of the best yet!
I'm also looking very much forward to meet up with old friends that I've had the chance to meet either through other IDUG events or people that I've had the pleasure of working with in the past. Not long ago I received an email from someone I used to work with while he was in Switzerland and we agreed to meet up at the IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Sydney. If you haven’t already done so it's not too late to sign up! It’s a great place to make new connections, and re-connect with old friends as well.
Don’t miss you on this month’s opportunities for continued education. Check in with the DB2 Tech Channel for upcoming Tech Talks, or browse through old webcasts you might have missed. While you’re at it, check out the IDUG Calendar of Events to stay up to date with everything IDUG!
