IOD EMEA conference that is taking place next week in my homeland: Holland! After the conference I will stay a couple of extra weeks to explore the places where my parents grew up... before moving to Canada.
At the conference I'll be working at the bookstore, recommending books to the attendees. If you are planning to be there... come and say hi to me! I've worked closely with many of the authors who have published DB2 and related titles over the past 10 years.... so I may be able to help you choose the best book for your needs.
The bookstore is located at the main entrance of the World Forum Convention Center during the following hours:
Monday, 2 June 3 pm - 8 pmTuesday, 3 June 10 am – 6 pmWednesday, 4 June 8 am – 6 pmThursday, 5 June 8 am – 6 pm
I mentioned in a previous entry that we will be launching the new Enterprise Master Data Management: An SOA Approach to Managing Core Information book by Allen Dreibelbis, Eberhard Hechler, Ivan Milman, Martin Oberhofer, Paul Van Run, and Dan Wolfson. We've arranged to have a special author signing session that will be held outside the World Forum Theater immediately following the Information Platform & Solutions featured keynote on Wednesday, 4 June at 12.20
Another newly published book that will be available for purchase at the bookstore is Executing SOA: A Practical Guide for the Service-Oriented Architect by Norbert Bieberstein, Robert G. Laird, Keith Jones, and Tilak Mitra.

I’m not sure how connected I’ll be at the conference, so I am not sure how many posts I’ll be able to make, but I’ll try.
While I’m away, make sure that you keep an eye on Kate’s blog!
