Yesterday I blogged about all the benefits of joining ChannelDB2.com. One of the things that I encouraged you to do is to join a group if there is a group that covers topics that you are interested in... and to participate in the groups in whatever way you can.
Today I got an invite from Rav Ahuja who has just created a new group on ChannelDB2.com called "Chat with the Lab" . If you are a member of this group, you'll automatically receive a notification for upcoming or previously recorded Chat with the Lab sessions.
Chat with the Lab sessions are free webinars from the IBM Labs. Join the experts to learn about DB2-related breakthrough technology, best practices, and to get your questions answered during a live Q & A session.
Some of the previous Chat with the Lab sessions include:
Thanks Rav for setting this group up! I'm sure you'll have many people join the group to stay on top of these amazing sessions.
Leveraging Spatial Capabilities in your Database
Date: 5/27/2010 (Thursday May 27, 2010)
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern (GMT-04:00)
10:30 AM Central / 8:30 AM Pacific / 16:30 hrs London / 17:30 hrs Frankfurt, Paris / India 9PM
Presented By: Sal Vella (IBM), David Adler (IBM)
This chat introduces the spatial capabilities of IBM relational databases, focusing on the DB2 LUW Spatial Extender. Much of the business data that we work with has a spatial characteristic, such as customer or office locations, sales regions, hazard polygons or facilities such as utility lines and highways. By representing this spatial information in a relational table as spatial datatypes, SQL queries can incorporate spatial functions to perform spatial analysis in the database. Business value is derived by being able to answer questions like:
- where are customers who may be interested in buying flood insurnce?
- what are the patterns of high crime activity
- should a new service center be constructed to support new customers
- where are preferred service providers along a route I plan to take
DB2 with the Spatial Extender is being used to answer these questions.
To learn more join experts from IBM labs - Sal Vella and David Adler.
Presentation charts for this Chat will be downloadable from ibm.com/db2/labchats

I’m very late in promoting this event due to my vacation! I hope you can make it on such short notice. This is also why you’re seeing several blog entries from me today…
Join Sal Vella and Steve Rees for the next Chat with the Lab event: The Latest in Advanced Performance Diagnostics on Tuesday May 31. DB2 Chat with the Lab is a free webinar series from the IBM labs that invites experts to speak to you about DB2-related breakthrough technology, best practices, and to answer your questions.
Recent releases of DB2 for LUW have continued to introduce improved ways to monitor the performance of your system, and uncover & solve performance problems. This presentation will review the gamut of performance tools on offer in DB2, focusing on recent additions such as the new 'time spent' metrics in DB2 9.7, new table functions to access monitor data, and the latest in db2pd options to see what's going on "under the hood" . The emphasis will be on the practical use of these tools to solve typical performance problems.
Presentation charts will be available on ibm.com/db2/labchats just prior to the event.
There have been many episodes in this series. You find them and watch the replays on ChannelDB2.com. To tempt you, here is a list of what you’ll find:
Someone has been very busy! And the best part? They’re all FREE! Learn & Enjoy.
Join the next complimentary webinar in the DB2 Chat with the Lab series:
Time: 12:30 AM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time (ET)
Speakers: Sal Vella, Leon Katsnelson, Rav Ahuja, Chris Gruber
PS. For me, this is Cloud month. After I listen to this webinar, it will be the third full cloud talk I’ve heard this month :)
Join Burt Vialpando and Rav Ahuja on Thursday September 29, 2011 where they will do a comparison on autonomic computing between DB2 and Oracle:
Many database professionals ask how DB2 and Oracle compare regarding their autonomic capabilities. That is, how do they make things easier for the DBA with smart, automatically implemented features. They also wonder if there is a clear advantage of one over the other in this respect. This DB2 Chat with the Lab webinar will answer those questions and include a comparison of following autonomic capabilities in DB2 and Oracle:
DB2 and Oracle - An Autonomic Computing Comparison
The session will be recorded, but attend live to get your questions answered.
