March is an exciting month for IDUG!

March is an exciting month for IDUG! Again this year, IDUG, in collaboration with IBM, will host two Technical Seminars in this month: one taking place on March 10 in Chennai, India; the other taking place on March 15 in Bangalore, India. Click the links below for more information on the seminars being offered*.

These Technical Seminars present a unique opportunity to gain in-depth technical training from top DB2 presenters from around the globe including, John Campbell, Chris Crone and Matt Huras. You won’t want to miss them!

Don’t forget to register early for the IDUG NA DB2 Tech Conference in Austin, Texas, taking place May 23-26, 2016, to experience the latest in DB2 technologies, networking opportunities and the technical content you need to be successful. Register by April 2 to save $350 on registration!

The 2016 IDUG EMEA DB2 Tech Conference, taking place November 13-18, 2016 in Brussels, Belgium is still many months away, but the time to submit your presentation is now! View information on presentation topics and requirements and submit your presentation by April 4, 2016 for your chance to be a speaker at this premier event!

Another exciting piece of work going on within IDUG is our Content Committee that has started working on a Technical White Paper covering the next release of DB2 for z/OS, currently known as Cypress. We have made a qualified guess, so our working title for the White Paper is DB2 12 Technical White Paper, and it will be an IDUG User Technical Perspective on the new release of DB2 for z/OS.

In case you still have DB2 11 ahead of you may be interested in taking a look at the last White Paper that the IDUG Content Committee did on DB2 11
