Beginning tomorrow you can participate in IOD virtual sessions... from your desk... for free.... whether you attended the conference in person or not. Personally I love attending these virtual conferences and have a good headset and mic to get the most out of the experience.
Which sessions should you choose? There have been many blog entries describing the sessions that took place, so take advantage of this information and choose the sessions that you most want to see. My recommendation is the Malcolm Gladwell session. He only spoke for half an hour, which is my only complaint! I could listen to his stories for hours, so I hope that in the future he is invited back to speak at the conference, but is given a large time period.
Malcolm's session is playing tomorrow... Tuesday Nov 10 at 11 EST. Don't miss it!
Register for this complimentary event and share with colleagues who did not attend this year’s live conference.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! I hope you have a safe and beautiful holiday with those who you love!
For those of us who are not in the US, this is typically a quiet week. If you are looking for something to do if you are experiencing a few quiet days, here are some suggestions:
Replay of Raul Chong's DB2 9.7 Technical Update: Ignore the message that the session is over... as there is a replay button on the page as well. There were many people who joined the session live... so if you missed it, by all means take advantage of the replay!
Replay of the DB2 NighShow episodes. Join Scott Hayes and his guests for a variety of topics. All sessions are recorded and more are planned. Enjoy!
IOD at Your Desk... Yes, you can replay many of the sessions that took place at IOD in Vegas at the end of October, including the Malcolm Gladwell session.
Continue or Begin your Certification Journey. Use the checklist that I created or read more about the process of getting certified.
Join or catch up with one of our communities, including PlanetDB2, ChannelDB2, (DB2 in Books), and My DeveloperWorks (see the list of available books... but there are many opportunities to learn on this site!!)
