Agenda for December 8th, 2004
8:30 to 9:00 Breakfast, Compliments of Computer Business International,

9:00 to 10:15 Don't Toss It! Store It with DB2 Stored Procedures
Presenter: Mark Thomas, Highmark
Applications are moving to the web riddled with new application
bugs, with high development costs, and slower response time. In many
of these situations, the business logic stays the same but the
existing code is thrown out and replaced. This presentation will
cover using stored procedures within PeopleSoft, but will also give
valuable insight on using stored procedures in any Web application.

10:15 to 10:30 Break

10:30 to 11:45 The DB2 Top Ten Lists (Application Development)
Presenter: Craig Mullins, BMC Software
This presentation will offer a series of informative tips,
techniques, and guidelines for managing and accessing DB2 databases.
But the information will be conveyed in a novel way - as a series of
Top Ten lists. Sort of like the lists David Letterman might write if
he were a DBA.

11:45 to 12:15 Lunch, Compliments of BMC Software

12:15 to 12:45 Lunch and Learn Session, Compliments of BMC Software
Presenter: David Geiger, BMC Software

12:45 to 1:00 Break

1:00 to 2:15 DB2 Database Design: From Logical to Physical
Presenter: Craig Mullins, BMC Software
Properly designed DB2 databases are critical to the usability and
performance of the resulting databases and application that use
them. This presentation covers the discipline of designing proper
relational databases from initial specifications through the
conceptual and logical data modeling phase and out to the final
physical database structures. In other words – database design from
inception to implementation

2:15 to 2:30 Break with afternoon snack – sponsored by Computer
Business International, Inc.

2:30 to 3:45 Coding Secure DB2 Applications
Presenter: Rick Nall, Computer Business International, Inc.
Nearly every security problem ever discovered can be traced back to
badly written code. Applications do the job they’re supposed to do,
but are written in a way that malicious users can use them to do
much more than the developer intended, like bypassing authentication
checks, exposed credit card information, medical records and other
sensitive data.
