The IDUG DB2 Tech Conference in Philadelphia is quickly approaching! Are you planning to attend? If so and not yet registered please do so now. Personally, I’m most excited for meeting up with my IDUG buddies, but also sharing with all of you how I reached or perhaps even excelled my goal of walking 1,200 km. since January 1st. It is well on its way now, having reached the 700 km. mark. IDUG in Philadelphia is setting the stage for a new standard in IDUG events, complete with full and half-day education seminars, more hands on education and more! I hope so see you there.
As an anecdote I remember when I went to India in 2008 to take part in one of the events, referred to as the “India Forum” that ran from 2007 to 2009, and as such the predecessor to what is today known as IDUG DB2 Technical Seminars. In particularly I have good memories of spending time with Anil Mahadev, a very passionate and true advocate of DB2, now located in Austin Texas, as well as Rajesh Prabhu, who of all places recently relocated to Basel in Switzerland for an engagement with UBS. As often said, the IT world is indeed small and you always meet twice!
