Those of you who are Db2 users know that the 2019 IDUG North American Db2 Tech Conference is being held this year in Charlotte, NC the week of June 2-6, 2019. IDUG stands for the International Db2 User Group and it has been meeting every year since 1988.
If you will be there, be sure to attend my speaking presentations on Tuesday, June 4th. My conference session is bright and early Tuesday at 8:00 AM (Session E05) titled Coding Db2 for Performance: By the Book. This session is based on my latest book and it is aimed at application developers. The general idea is to give an overview of the things that you can do as you design and code your Db2 programs (for z/OS or LUW) with performance in mind. All too often performance is an afterthought – and that can be quite expensive. Nail down the basics by attending this session!
Also on Tuesday, but later in the morning, I will deliver a vendor-sponsored presentation for Infotel, at 10:40 AM. This presentation, titled Improving Db2 Application Quality for Optimizing Performance and Controlling Costs, will be delivered in two parts. I will be presenting the first half of the VSP discussing the impact of DevOps on Db2 database management and development. The second half will be delivered by Carlos Almeida of Infotel, who will talk about how their SQL quality assurance solutions can aid the DevOps process for Db2 development.
I hope to see you there!
