Last week was excellent at the IBM Information on Demand Global Conference in Anaheim. The entire event went very well, I was very busy getting the Developer Den ready for Monday, we had 30 laptops available for people to try out 13 different tutorials ranging from PHP, .NET, Cloudscape, IDS, and DB2. The short talks held in the Developer Den were also well received. It is difficult to have everything going on at the same time as we had a lounge area at the back and self-paced tutorials and talks occurring throughout the day.
Developer Den v1.0 went well, and I'm looking forward to IOD 2007 and helping out where I can. The most popular tutorials included: Cloudscape with Ajax, PHP with Ajax, DB2 on Rails, and the new Eclipse based DB2 Developer Workbench.
If you live in the San Francisco/San Jose area or the Kansas City area sign up for the free 1 day seminar on DB2 9. I'm looking forward to meeting people at these two events.
Here is the agenda:
- Information Management overview
- DB2 9 Overview
- Querying XML
- Optimized for Java
- Stored Procedures
- Optimized for PHP and Ruby
- Designing Database Solutions
and you can register for free here.
With the IOD 2006 conference now over it is time to focus on my new job as the Product and Release Manager for DB2, IDS drivers and tools for Developers and DBAs. Let me know if you have ideas for the DB2 Developer Workbench, Drivers (APIs), and or Visual Studio 2005 tools for IBM data servers.
