Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Thank you to all our finalists for sharing your DB2 knowledge with the DB2 Community. Unfortunately, Richard was not able to join us due to work conflicts. Nine Finalists offered up terrific presentations packed with DB2 tips and advice about DB2 commands. Our judges saved Rodolfo, and Richard, Yonghang, and Kingo have been eliminated. On March 30th, our seven remaining finalists will have six minutes each to earn audience votes.

A message from today's show sponsor

Please watch our short 2 minute 26 second video. Thanks!
