Conferences are a great way to learn a great deal in a short period of time and also a great way to meet people in the industry. Unfortunately, not many people are able to get budget to travel to the big conferences such as IDUG or IOD. The next best thing is to attend regional user conferences that bring the best of the best speakers to a location close to your home or office.
The are many regional user groups that take place regularly across the world, but the one I’ll tell you about is the one in my local: Toronto / Markham: Central Canada DB2 Users Group.
This year’s meeting takes place June 11-12, 2012 at the Institute for Learning.
