  • Impressive presentations! I liked all of them, but Norberto's tips where simple and extremely usefull!
  • Is there any way to obtain an electronic version of all of the presentations? There are so many useful hints and tips in them.
  • It was a tough call between Mary and Thiru. Thiru had helpful content, but Mary's delivery and style was very polished. Hope Mary will compete again or present at IDUG.

  • A very cool event.
  • Norberto's presentation, though had no out of box tool/new db2 functionality but he shared the tools n tips that surely gonna help any naive or even a seasoned dba... JB... she rocks... If her presentation was a fb wall post I would have super duper liked it... A complex technical presentation can not get more entertaining that wat momi presented... Thiru yet again comes out with a gem of db2something...

  • The gathering (of the same) statistics everytime the show is On Air is a kind of boring. The stats itself are interesting, but maybe you can ask about more specialized information, such as preferred way of doing administration tasks / backup strategies / number of users concurrently using the DB2 DB / largest DB handled / largest queries seen / etc. Best Regards!
