Another great IBM conference is around the corner. This one is called InterConnect and is focused on cloud and mobile technologies. Since data and analytics play in both areas, you'll find great sessions to increase your skills and knowledge by attending.
The conference takes place in Las Vegas, February 22-26. I think most of us in the north east are already tired of winter, so a conference in a warmer climate is very welcome this time of year!

would you like to share your expertise with others at a conference?
While at the conference, you can attend sessions and learn about other
areas and encourage other speakers. I’m
sure many people have mixed emotions about the prospect of speaking at a
conference because public speaking is still one of the number one fears
in the world. Even people who you think are natural at speaking in
front of thousands of people have fears. Ask Jeff Jonas! This fear can be overcome, and thanks to the DB2Night Show’s “ DB2’s Got Talent... [More]
I enjoy meeting people, so the IBM Information on Demand Conference
is one of my favourite events that I attend every year. In this post,
I’d like to talk about the authors I’ve met and those who will be available to

been lucky enough to meet some pretty famous people at previous IOD
conferences. Some of the highlights: Malcolm Gladwell, the Stephens
from the Freakonomics books, Steven Covey, Michael Eisner; and remember
the craziness surrounding Michael Lewis and Billy Beane last year? Beyond

I know it seems early to start planning for a fall conference, but I’m sure
you’ll agree that time flies! Not only does it fly, but it takes time to put
together a justification proposal to attend the conference and to get it
approved. If you do it now, you still have a month to take advantage of the
early bird special. Register by
August 31 and you’ll save $300.

IDUG EMEA took place in Prague a few weeks ago and like all European conferences, it was fun and educational. In some ways it feels like a DB2 reunion as well since it is much smaller than other conferences that I attend. This makes it easy to connect with people and to catch up since we last got together. Personally I have a few stories I’d like to share with you, but not now. Now I’d like to tell you about meeting "DB2’s Got Talent” winner Norberto. This was a trip of “firsts” for Norberto: his first time in Europe, first IDUG,... [More]
