Come See Me Speak at the Heart of America Db2 User Group on 2018-09-10

On September 10, 2018 I will be delivering two Db2 presentations at the Heart of America Db2 User Group (HOADb2UG). The meeting is being held in Kansas City... well, a suburb of Kansas City named Overland Park. Here is the address of the exact location:

KU Edwards Campus
Kansas University - Edwards Campus
12600 Quivira Rd
Overland Park, Ks 66213-2402

There are several other speakers at the event, but I will be speaking on the following two subjects:
It’s Not Your Daddy’s Db2!  
This presentation takes a look at the changing world of Db2 for z/OS, which is always changing, adding more features and functionality… and discarding old stuff, too. If you are still using Db2 the same way you did 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago, you are probably doing things wrong! This presentation takes a look at how things are changing, not just with Db2, but also with IT and the industry. It is delivered in two parts: first looking at industry and DBA trends, and then looking at some of the specific changes made in the past few versions of Db2 that should impact how you use Db2.
The Top Ten Db2 Things You Need to Know: For DBAs and Developers
There is a veritable boatload of information and details about Db2 for z/OS available to you. But can you digest it all? Wouldn't it be nice if you could focus on the things that were the most important for you to know instead of wading through thousands of pages of manuals, web pages, and presentations? This session will distill the essence of what you need to know into the top ten most important issues for the two biggest categories of DB2 users: application programmers and database administrators. This presentation offers a count down the top ten most important things you need to know. Along the way we will uncover what is most important for DBA, developers, and managers to understand about Db2 for z/OS. If you are interesting in understanding the hierarchy of Db2 performance tuning objectives, and moving further along in your mastery of Db2 performance, this this presentation will help.
Hopefully if you are in the area you will stop by to spend some time at the event. If so, I look forward to seeing you there!
