A lot of new stuff has been going on at the International DB2 User's Group (IDUG) the past few months, so I thought I'd write a quick blog entry to update folks about what's new.

First of all, this year's North American IDUG conference will be held the week of May 6 thru 10, 2007, in San Jose, CA. As always, the conference offers a fantastic learning and networking opportunity for DB2 and Informix users with hundreds of technical sessions, as well as 16 full day pre-conference seminars, the opprotunity to take certification exams for free, numerous special interest groups, and a great vendor exhibition. Also, this year's event is the first to offer IMS content, too - so if you are an IMS DBA or technician now is the time to add IDUG to your educational opportunities!

In other IDUG news, the group is expanding its conference coverage to India. The 2007 IDUG India Forum, taking place May 31 – June 2, 2007 in Bangalore, India, is geared towards professional application developers and DBAs. This three-day event will present content that will appeal to new users as well as experienced professionals. So if you are in India, IDUG is coming your way!

Finally, if you haven't visited the IDUG web site in awhile, now is the time to check it out again. IDUG volunteers have put a lot of effort into revamping the site and it looks great.

That's it for now... check in again soon!
