Keep on Learning
TV, or in this case, YouTube can be an excellent way to learn about many things. I really like that IBM is taking an active role at getting valuable content out on YouTube. What's even better is that many of the videos become viral and end up getting many views.
The videos are extemely well done and worthy of going viral. Take these two videos: Servers for Truth #1 and Servers for Truth #2. The videos are in answer to several claims made recently by Oracle. You'll enjoy... and get the REAL story!
Another set of videos that you may wish to watch on YouTube are the "Let's Build a Smarter Planet" series. Again this is a set of amazing videos that explain how and why the world needs to be smarter. My favourite is the one where Jeff Jonas is the star... which one is it? Watch them all to find out.... you won't be disappointed!
Want to make smarter decisions with easy to implement technology? According to Liz Epadula’s Blog, IBM customers are able to get business insights and make smart decisions by using IBM’s Smart Analytics System in a new format as part of Novell’s SUSE Appliance Program.
A Novell Press Release regarding this collaboration between Novell and IBM DB2 will be released this week. I’ll post the link as soon as I can.
New virtual appliances and templates have been built that include DB2 installed on SLES 11. This makes it very each for developers to get started on DB2 Express C or to build their own appliances on top. To get started, link to the SUSE Studio, log in, and search for DB2.
In addition, there will be a podcast made available to step you through the use of the templates. I’ll provide the link as soon as it’s available, but it will be place on developerWorks if you want to search for it before I mention the link.
PS… I’m leaving on vacation in the morning, so if you don’t see new entries from me in awhile, don’t be worried. I’ll be back… and more relaxed!
