[Adv] IBM DB2 for z/OS Application Performance & Tuning class 1/19-23
Hi Listers,

I've been teaching IBM Technical Education DB2
classes [as a contract instructor] since 1991.
Many of you may have missed the chance to learn
the ways to tune a DB2 application, or may have
new staff members that lack this training. The
subject class is now renumbered as: CV960 "DB2
9 for z/OS Application Performance and Tuning" [it formally was CF961].

I'll be teaching it at the M/UX facility in
Santa Clara/San Jose CA on January 19-23, 2009
and there are a few seats remaining but you must
ACT QUICKLY TO REGISTER. Contact M/UX at: 1-888-689-3326
[ http://www.mux-ed.com/db2u39009.pdf click on
the CV960 link and the Santa Clara link ]

If you want to be closer to home, the class is
simultaneously broadcast to Bellevue/Seattle,
WA; El Segundo/Los Angeles,
CA; Englewood/Denver, CO; Phoenix,
AZ; Sacramento/Elk Grove, CA; and St
louis/Maryland Heights, MO. Click on the link above at the city you choose.

Using cutting-edge technology, M/UX's Live
Interactive Telepresence Education (LITE) courses
are a step above the videoconferences you may
have experienced before. M/UX uses a dedicated T1
line connecting locations so these classes offer
crystal clear, real-time two-way audio and visual
communication – no bandwidth bottlenecks, frozen
screens or speakerphones. Students get virtually
all the benefits of attending class in person,
without the expense of travel and time on the road.

and the movie at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PHraL_h3jM ]

This is an updated [for version 9] advanced
course for DB2 for z/OS application developers
and DB2 for z/OS DBAs. Skills taught are: How to
design better indexes; how to live with the
optimizer (avoid pitfalls, help when necessary);
how to avoid locking problems; how to use EXPLAIN
[with labs] and explore accounting traces to find
significant performance problems in an
operational application. For more information see:

And IBM offers pre-payment "Education Pack"
discounts that may allow you to buy in 2008 and get trained in 2009:
