Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Judge Susan Visser, IBM, wrote a terrific blog about today's show. Check it out! I am in awe of our worldwide reach - today's contestants were from Finland, Portugal, and India. Our USA contestants called in sick. I thought two of today's presentations were superbly prepared and delivered.

Our judges selected Armando, Sreeharsha, and Mikko to advance to the finals. We now have our 10 finalists for 1 March 2013! Hope you'll join us for some great DB2 education! Please REGISTER to attend the finals shows in March.
