Boy has this one been a “slow train coming” but I’m glad it’s out now. And it was fun making it. Especially the piece with Frank and Jeff.

Episode 14 “In The Long Run” Show Notes
Here are the show notes for Episode 14 “In the Long Run”. The show is called this because the episode ran longer than usual, and it is of fitting length if you have a very long commute.
Martin has two new blog posts about DDF (DB2’s Distributed Data Facility), following up on Episode 13 where he talked about recent DDF analysis enhancements:

Where we’ve been
Martin has been to London (to the UK GSE zCMPA User Group) to present his ever-updated DDF presentation, and had more fun with it.
Marna has been to the Systems University in Orlando, Florida (May 22, 2017 week).

Frank De Gilio and Jeff Bisti are the hosts, and concentrate on a wider introductory perspective than our MPT podcast does.
We had great fun talking to Frank and Jeff; Martin left some of the laughs in the final edit. And we’re sure a lot of you will enjoy Terminal Talk, having listened to all their episodes so far.
Marna and Martin discussed three customer requirements:
