Welcome to January 2013! I hope you had an excellent break from work to have some fun, food & time with family & friends! I did and am now ready for a fast start into the year.
I can see that it will be a very busy year for me, and I'm sure for many others. Here are a few things that are already on my radar:
- Key anniversaries: DB2 for z/OS = 30 years; IDUG = 25 years; and DB2 for LUW = 20 years.
- New releases. I can't say more, but apparently there may be something new on the horizon!
- New books: yes... there are several on the horizon. Follow my blog and I'll let you know first :)
- Interesting events: Orlando, Barcelona, Las Vegas for the big events and Toronto, Boston, Dallas, and the Netherlands for smaller events.
- Free webinars: Lots of topics are being planned for both the DB2Night Show and DB2 Tech Talk webinars.
- Articles, tutorials, and best practices. So much is already in the pipeline for developerWorks!
- Articles and columns - also planned for IBM Data Management Magazine.
- Social media! Find us on twitter, facebook, blogs, YouTube videos, podcasts, slideshare, communities, linkedIN... just about everywhere!
- IBM Redbooks, product docs, and training courses: stay in touch to find the best of the best to keep your skills sharp.
- DB2 Evangelists? Our partners, customers, IBM champions, gold consultants, and of course our very own IBM employees are working together to ensure that there will be no end of fun this year!
Happy New Year!
PS: I found the image on the DB2 Symposium page and liked it very much that I used it here as well!
