BLU at IOD: Highlights from 2013

svisser1 Tags:  db2 in-memory ibmiod ibmblu 1 Comment 9,331 Views

This year's IOD conference was amazing!  Record crowds, lots of events, great people, and for the first time ever, our beloved product DB2 was front & center!  DB2 with BLU Acceleration is clearly a winner and you had no trouble learning about it at IOD: the whole conference was painted BLU!

I've put together this rather large slideshare to show you what I mean.  I presented these slides to the development team and the feedback was awesome.  Throughout the slides, I've added links that will allow you to "take" part in the event after the fact.  I link to free books that you can download, videos and blogs by our subject matter experts, and more.  I hope you enjoy the photos and the twitter messages I've added throughout.

 

You can reach the slideshare directly via http://www.slideshare.net/IBMDB2/blu-at-iod-hightlights-for-2013?ref=/ via @SlideShare



 

Please share! 

PS... if you think I've missed something, let me know.  I'd be happy to add more links, photos, and information.
