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.
