On the heels of Vijay's virtual tech briefing on Optim Development Studio 101 (you can register for the replay here, if you missed it!), I'm going to be taking you on a deep dive in one aspect of using the product for SQL Stored Procedure development (with a focus on z/OS). Marichu Scanlon from our continuous engineering team will be on board to help answer questions.
There has been a lots of interest out there in this topic because many people use stored procedures to encapsulate business logic, improve performance, and, with DB2 for z/OS v9 native SQL procedures, they can use them for reduced cost because they are zIIP-eligible.
The first of the two sessions of this briefing will be on September 24 It will last about one hour and will cover topics of creating, deploying, running and working with existing stored procedures. Within this session I will also be answering a lot of the commonly asked questions I have seen both on the forums and customer interactions, and of course I will also be taking your questions during the event itself. Keep in mind, during the September 24 session I'll only touch briefly on how debugging plays in the stored procedure development life cycle since we will be having a follow up deep dive session on October 22 that focuses on how to enable debugging in a z/OS environment. The event is free, and you can register for it here to get the details on accessing the event.
Look forward to seeing you at the tech briefing!
