Special guest George Baklarz, IBM, Receives RAVE Reviews

FREE TOOLS??? Did someone say FREE TOOLS???

In episode #34, special guest George Baklarz, IBM Toronto Lab, shared with us a demonstration of some very cool (and free) tools that can be used to estimate DB2 compression results, simulate DB2 pureScale operation, and learn about the plethora of DB2 features and capabilities. He also shared a few tips and used his crystal ball to gaze into the future of DB2. Not only are we making the REPLAY available, but you can also DOWNLOAD and RUN the FREE DB2 TOOLS!!!

So, watch, learn, download, play, test, evaluate, and learn some more here...

Episode 34, 19 November 2010, What's NEW and COOL with DB2 and FREE TOOLS.

FREE DB2 TOOLS

Frankly, as I said on the show, I think the "DB2 Demo" tool is poorly named. Instead, not only is it a good tool for demonstrating the functional capabilities of DB2, but it can and should be used as a training tool to help you learn. And, it contains a wealth of examples which make excellent reference material.
