Rick Van der Lans and Klaas Brant have joined forces and are running a series of DB2 Symposiums in various locations:
* Veldhoven, Netherlands April 18-20, 2007* Bonn, Germany April 23-26, 2007* Boston MA, USA May 21-23, 2007* San Jose CA, USA November 12-14, 2007
I've met Rick and Klaas several times at IBM Gold Consultant meetings over the past several years. I met with Rick and Klaas this morning to see how I can help with the symposiums in terms of books and certifications.
Rick is also an author and has several books that may be of interest. Here is a link to the English version of his latest book: Introduction to SQL: Mastering the Relational Database Language (4th Edition)
