Today the three judges of the DB2Night Show “DB2’s Got Talent” Competition presented along with host Scott Hayes. It was fun, and hopefully informative to the audience.
I presented first and sadly ran out of time! It is much harder than it looks. My presentation was on the Power of Social media. I gave tips on how people can promote the work that they do to the DB2 community, how to listen to what is going on in the community, and how people can contribute via likes, comments and sharing the content provided by others.
Since I didn’t come close to finishing (did I spend too much time on my bio? give too many examples?), I’ve posted my slides in SlideShare. Here’s where you can get them: Db2 night soci
Martin presented next: “How I Started Dropping DB2 Indexes & Put my Girls Through College”. Martin is a great teacher and his presentation was very informative. He also ran out of time and reminded us that he’ll being doing a similar presentation at IDUG this year.
Scott was next: “ Breakthrough DB2 LUW Performance Every Day!” . I loved the one quote that Scott used: “Success comes to those who focus on helping other people be successful”. I would say that all involved in this show have this sentiment in mind! Entertaining presentation and even Scott ran out of time!
Lastly came Klaas: “Da House is on Fire: How to Fix a Performance Problem”. Very interesting graphics, but very effective as well. Klaas is a natural speaker and if you get a chance, you should attend his talks. Of the 4 presentations, Klaas was the only one who finished on time!
The voting was interesting, but not surprising. Clearly the audience prefers technical content about DB2. My presentation was in a completely different category! Congratulations to Martin for being the overall “winner” of this show.
